iPad Screen Repair

This iPad had a cracked screen digitiser after it was dropped outdoors.  It’s important to always ask anyone who’s repairing your iPad or iPhone to always swap over the old home button onto the new digitised, otherwise, your touch ID feature will not work because the iPad is coded to only work with the original home button

You may wonder why a robux card is stuck inside the iPad, that’s being used as a flexible tool to hold the battery connectors apart.  It’s important that the battery is disconnected when disconnection the screen panel and digitiser as the device could otherwise become bricked.. Which basically means that it will no longer work. 

There’s a lot of youtube tutorials out there showing people how to replace the screen digitised.  However, I wouldn’t recommend that you try this yourself unless you are willing to risk having to buy a new iPad, it’s not an easy process and you also risk injury during the process.  when removing the broken glass digitised there are hundreds of tiny shards of glass that can get stuck in your fingers and could even ping into your eyes.  

We wear always rubber gloves and eye protection, plus parcel tape on top of the glass to try and stop bits of glass flying everywhere. 

The online guides also miss out on some things, like the fact that theres a small label of the home button connector on some models like the 10.2 7th gen iPad, and unless you remove it very carefully you’re going to tear off the plastic securing switch that holds the cable in place… This would spell the end of you’re iPad as it’s impossible to replace this on the main PCB / Logic Board.
