Neophytus VI was Patriarch of Constantinople for two periods during the middle of the eighteenth century: from 1734 to 1740 and from 1743 to 1744.

Neophytus was born in Patmos, but after that we know nothing about his life until he was installed as Metropolitan of Caesarea. During his episcopate at the Diocese of Caesarea, Metr. Neophytus founded the Monastery of St. John Prodromos in Flaviana, now Zincidere, in 1728.

His election to the patriarchal throne, in 1734, was aided by the Sultan's translator, Alex. Gkikas. In 1740, he was deposed and succeeded by Paisius II, but returned to the patriarchal throne in 1743. He was again replaced by Paisius II in 1744, after which he returned to Patmos.

He probably received his positions as patriarch as a result of the intrigues that surrounded the patriarchate during the era of the Ottoman rule of Constantinople. He was noted as not seemingly interested in ecclesiastical issues during his terms as patriarch. He reposed on Patmos in 1747.
