Turn off the iPhone and take down the motherboard, use the multimeter to measure the diode resistance of the charging dock connector. The diode resistance showed normal.

Heat the motherboard on the heating platform, then carefully separate the motherboard.

Take off the audio IC with the hot air gun. Add solder flux, then clean off the solder pads with the soldering iron, desolder the solder pads with the solder wick afterwards, and clean off with the PCB cleaner.
