How to remove a stuck headphone jack tip from iPhone

Do you have an iPhone 5, 5C, 5S or 6 that has a headphone tip stuck inside the jack? Here at gadget mechanics, we experimented with several things and found a solution. When tweezers and sharp objects can’t get a broken headphone tip out of the headphone jack, the entire charge port gets replaced. I think we have found a solution that doesn’t require any parts, a heat gun and long sharp metal object. First, remove the iPhone screen and battery. Next, make sure you are not near any flammable objects.

Plug in your heat gun, turn it on, and make it stand facing up. Wait for about a minute for the heat gun to get hot. Do not touch the top of the gun. Next, stick the sharp metal tool like a metal pick at the edge of the heat gun. Wear protective heat gloves.

Wait for about a minute for the tip of the metal tool to get hot. Don’t go over 1 minute Finally, turn off your heat gun. Use your metal tool and quickly press against the back of the headphone jack to push out the stuck headphone tip. There are no wires or sensitive parts in the back of the headphone jack so this will not damage the charge port.

This technique only works with the iPhone 5 through iPhone 6. You can also use a soldiering iron tip to do the same thing. We would like you to comment below with your attempts using our technique.
