How I Upgraded My iPhone Memory 800% - in Shenzhen, China

119971 ratings | 3774519 views
This is my journey in Shenzhen, China to learn how to upgrade the memory in my iPhone 6s from 16GB to 128GB. I've been hearing for several years that this was something the repair shops here in Huaqiangbei could do, and I'd even seen one do it to a friends phone, so naturally, I had to learn how to do it myself. It was harder than I thought. Share this video: https://youtu.be/rHP-OPXK2ig Subscribe to the channel here: https://goo.gl/qeurxc This is part 3 of my custom iPhone series. Part 1: Making a CUSTOM iPhone - in Shenzhen, China https://youtu.be/aQszF2iKhx0 Part 2: Making a Custom GLOWING iPhone Logo - in Shenzhen, China https://youtu.be/JQkjAhmvITI The best video I found about how to upgrade iPhone memory: https://youtu.be/v5WDDZqhn2s Edited by auram - https://www.instagram.com/aurxm/ My Gear: Main camera: http://amzn.to/2BfHqiW Other camera: http://amzn.to/2B0Snke Main lens: http://amzn.to/2B0THDI Other lens: http://amzn.to/2BAysJQ Microphone: http://amzn.to/2kNCqHg Little tripod: http://amzn.to/2B12zJF Collaborative editing software: http://bit.ly/frameio-sp Facebook: http://facebook.com/strangepartscom Twitter: http://twitter.com/strangepartscom Instagram: http://instagram.com/strangeparts_com Music: Elevation by Gravity (licensed through http://bit.ly/artlist-sp) Trip the Light - Instrumental by Vikings in Tibet (licensed through http://bit.ly/artlist-sp) Save It (Instrumental Version) - Chris Coral (licensed through http://bit.ly/epidemic-sp) Soft Glare - Martin Veida (licensed through http://bit.ly/epidemic-sp) Pink Butterfly by Marco Martini (licensed through http://bit.ly/artlist-sp) Dramatic Drone 8 - Jon Bjork (licensed through http://bit.ly/epidemic-sp) #StrangeParts #iPhoneAdventures #China

And after the cost of the 15 + test boards and the few locked boards. Paste, Marco scoop and all other equipment needed it would be cheaper to just pay for the phone you wanted. Lol

before heating chip u should use soldering flux it helps to heat evenly. also don't pull chip up, try to move it horizontally and then pull up when it ready

Your phone is also 4 years newer than the 6S. Of course it will have more storage.
