    The glass on my iPhone 6 has a few cracks. I was wondering if it would be possible to replace the screen with a 6s screen. I want the stronger glass.

    What if I get the screen from ifixit? Are the connectors different or something?

    #1. iFixit most likely doesn't have 6S screens in stock yet.

    #2. The 6S screen is physically incompatible. Different connectors, different connector layout, not to mention the increased thickness of the screen due to 3D touch (That is why the 6S is .2mm thicker). Even if some how you could connect the display, I am sure the installed iOS of an iPhone 6 would not support the 6S screen.

    #3. Not worth the trouble even if it were possible. Every year Apple touts increased glass strength and every year, people still crack their screens.

    ill chime in, that unless you've already fixed your screen once before (voiding warranty, get it fixed at the apple store. Its cost is damn near the same as the others and its OEM.

    A new 6s screen will probably work as well as a new 4s screen on your iPhone 6.
