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 Metropolitan of Caesaria. His election to the patriarchal throne was aided by the Sultan's translator, Alex. Gkikas. Patr. Neophytus' ecclesiastical actions were apparently unimportant as the Patriarchate description of his work is that he seemed not to show any interest in ecclesiastical issues. He reposed on Patmos in 1747.
