    • Front camera

    • Antennas

    • Display cables

    • The next three steps demonstrate the Anti-Clamp, a tool we designed to make the opening procedure easier. If you aren't using the Anti-Clamp, skip down three steps for an alternate method.

    • For complete instructions on how to use the Anti-Clamp, check out this guide.

    • Pull the blue handle backwards to unlock the Anti-Clamp's arms.

    • Place an object under your iPad so it rests level between the suction cups.

    • Position the suction cups near the middle of the left edge—one on the top, and one on the bottom.

    • Hold the bottom of the Anti-Clamp steady and firmly press down on the top cup to apply suction.

    • If you find that the surface of your iPad is too slippery for the Anti-Clamp to hold onto, use tape to create a grippier surface.

    • Pull the blue handle forward to lock the arms.

    • Turn the handle clockwise 360 degrees or until the cups start to stretch.

    • Make sure the suction cups remain aligned with each other. If they begin to slip out of alignment, loosen the suction cups slightly and realign the arms.

  5. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Case Button/Cable Replacement: passo 5, immagine 1 di 2 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Case Button/Cable Replacement: passo 5, immagine 2 di 2
    • Wait one minute to give the adhesive a chance to release and present an opening gap.

    • If your screen isn't getting hot enough, you can use a hair dryer to heat along the left edge of the iPad.

    • For complete instructions on how to use a hair dryer, check out this guide.

    • Insert an opening pick under the digitizer when the Anti-Clamp creates a large enough gap.

    • If the Anti-Clamp doesn't create a sufficient gap, apply more heat to the area and rotate the handle clockwise half a turn.

    • Don't crank more than a half a turn at a time, and wait one minute between turns. Let the Anti-Clamp and time do the work for you.

    • Skip the next step.

    • If your display is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction cup to adhere. Alternatively, very strong tape may be used instead of the suction cup. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction cup to the broken screen.

    • Once the screen is warm to touch, apply a suction handle to the left edge of the screen and as close to the edge as possible.

    • Lift the screen with the suction handle to create a small gap between the digitizer and the frame.

    • Insert an opening pick into the gap between the digitizer and the frame.

    • Insert a second opening pick into the gap you just created.

    • Slide the pick toward the bottom-left corner of the device to separate the adhesive.

    • Leave the pick in the bottom-left corner to prevent the adhesive from re-sealing.

    • Don't worry if you can see the opening pick through the digitizer—just pull the pick out. The LCD screen shouldn't be damaged, but you risk leaving behind hard-to-clean adhesive.

  24. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Case Button/Cable Replacement: passo 24, immagine 1 di 2 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Case Button/Cable Replacement: passo 24, immagine 2 di 2
    • Be very careful with this step. Take your time, ensure the adhesive is hot and soft, and make sure you separated all of the adhesive with a pick. Don't be afraid to stop and reheat.

    • Twist the two opening picks on the left corners of the iPad to lift the digitizer slightly, separating the the last of the adhesive in the process.

    • If there's a significant amount of resistance, reheat the edges and work along them with an opening pick.

  27. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Case Button/Cable Replacement: passo 27, immagine 1 di 2 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Case Button/Cable Replacement: passo 27, immagine 2 di 2
    • Once all of the adhesive has been separated, open the digitizer like a book and rest it parallel to the iPad.

    • During reassembly, clean the remaining adhesive from the frame—and the digitizer if you're re-using it—with isopropyl alcohol. Replace the adhesive with our adhesive strips or pre-cut adhesive cards.

    • Be mindful of the display cables when reassembling the device. Make sure they are folded properly underneath the LCD screen to prevent any damage.

    • Do not attempt to fully remove the LCD. It is still connected to the iPad by several cables at the home button end. Lift only from the front-facing camera end.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to pry the LCD out of its recess just enough to grab it with your fingers.

    • Flip the iPad LCD like a page in a book, lifting near the camera and turning it over the home button end of the rear case.

    • Be gentle and keep an eye on the LCD cables as you flip the display over.

    • Lay the LCD on its face to allow access to the display cables.

    • Set the LCD down on a soft, clean, lint-free surface.

    • Remove the single 2.3 mm Phillips screw securing the battery connector to the logic board.

    • To reduce the risk of a short, you can insert a battery blocker or a modified opening pick to disconnect the battery.

    • Be very careful when you isolate the battery using a battery blocker. The battery contacts are easily damaged, resulting in irreversible damage.

    • Slide the battery blocker underneath the battery connector area of the logic board, and leave it in place while you work.

    • If you are having trouble fitting the battery blocker underneath the logic board, you can try using a playing card to disconnect the battery.

  31. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Case Button/Cable Replacement: passo 32, immagine 1 di 1
    • Remove the three 1.4 mm Phillips screws from the display cable bracket.

  32. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Case Button/Cable Replacement: passo 33, immagine 1 di 2 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Case Button/Cable Replacement: passo 33, immagine 2 di 2
    • Use the flat end of a spudger to gently pry the display cable bracket straight up from the logic board.

    • The display cable connector is adhered to the underside of the bracket, so don’t push the spudger too far under the bracket, or you may damage the connector.

  33. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Case Button/Cable Replacement: passo 34, immagine 1 di 1
    • Remove the LCD.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to flip the tab on the home button ribbon cable ZIF connector upward.

    • Carefully pull the home button ribbon cable horizontally out of the ZIF connector.

  36. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Case Button/Cable Replacement: passo 37, immagine 1 di 3 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Case Button/Cable Replacement: passo 37, immagine 2 di 3 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Case Button/Cable Replacement: passo 37, immagine 3 di 3
    • Use a the flat end of a spudger or a fingernail to carefully pop the two digitizer cable connectors straight up from their sockets.

    • To avoid damaging your iPad, pry only on the connectors themselves, not on the socket on the logic board.

  37. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Case Button/Cable Replacement: passo 38, immagine 1 di 2 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Case Button/Cable Replacement: passo 38, immagine 2 di 2
    • Carefully peel the home button ribbon cable up off of the adhesive holding it to the rear case.

    • Remove the front panel assembly.

    • During reassembly, wipe any dust or fingerprints off of the inside of the front panel assembly to ensure a clean display.

    • If you experience "ghost" or "phantom" touch input issues with your new display, this can be resolved by adding a layer of very thin insulating tape, such as Kapton (polyimide) tape, to the highlighted areas on the back of the panel. iFixit panels come with the proper insulation, and should not require the addition of any tape.

    • Without the proper insulation, these areas of the digitizer can ground out against other components, causing touch input malfunction.

    • The insulation is not visible to the naked eye, and is different from the foam dust barrier strips found on many iPads.

    • Use the pointed tip of a spudger to lift the power button out of its housing in the rear case.

    • At this point, the volume button bracket may lift out of its slot. Do not remove it entirely as the ribbon cable is still glued to the rear case.

  41. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Case Button/Cable Replacement: passo 43, immagine 1 di 1
    • Lift but do not remove the volume buttons bracket from its housing in the rear case.

    • Lift the bracket just enough to expose the volume switches on the back of the button covers.
