iPad Pro 12.9" 5th Gen Screen Replacement

Cosa ti serve

  1. iPad Pro 12.9" 5th Gen Screen Replacement, Prepare your iPad for disassembly: passo 1, immagine 1 di 1
    • Allow your iPad's battery to drain below 25% before starting this repair. A charged battery may catch fire if damaged during the repair.

    • If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.

    • Unplug any cables and fully shut down your iPad.

  2. iPad Pro 12.9" 5th Gen Screen Replacement, Heat the right edge: passo 2, immagine 1 di 1
    • Apply a heated iOpener to the right edge of the screen for two minutes.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the iPad—the screen and internal battery are susceptible to heat damage.

  3. iPad Pro 12.9" 5th Gen Screen Replacement, Anti-Clamp instructions: passo 3, immagine 1 di 3 iPad Pro 12.9" 5th Gen Screen Replacement, Anti-Clamp instructions: passo 3, immagine 2 di 3 iPad Pro 12.9" 5th Gen Screen Replacement, Anti-Clamp instructions: passo 3, immagine 3 di 3

    • 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 right 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 Pro 12.9" 5th Gen Screen Replacement: passo 5, immagine 1 di 2 iPad Pro 12.9" 5th Gen Screen 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 right edge of the iPad.

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

    • Insert an opening pick under the screen 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.

  6. iPad Pro 12.9" 5th Gen Screen Replacement, Insert an opening pick: passo 6, immagine 1 di 3 iPad Pro 12.9" 5th Gen Screen Replacement, Insert an opening pick: passo 6, immagine 2 di 3 iPad Pro 12.9" 5th Gen Screen Replacement, Insert an opening pick: passo 6, immagine 3 di 3
    • If your screen 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 display.

    • Apply a suction handle to the screen as close to the center of the right edge as possible.

    • Pull up on the suction handle with a strong, steady force to create a small gap between the frame and screen.

    • The large screen is very fragile. Only create a gap big enough to insert an opening pick.

    • If you're having trouble making a gap, reapply a heated iOpener to the right edge for two minutes.

    • Insert an opening pick into the gap.

    • Don't insert the pick more than 5 mm to avoid damaging the screen.

    • There are two 2 cm-long magnets along the right edge of the screen. Don't insert your opening pick more than 2 mm to avoid damaging the screen in these locations:

    • The first magnet begins about 3 cm from the top of the iPad.

    • The second magnet begins about 3 cm from the bottom of the iPad.

    • There are four 2 cm-long cutouts along the left edge of the screen where the adhesive is very thin. Don’t insert your opening pick more than 2 mm in these locations to avoid damaging the display:

    • The upper cutouts begin at 4 cm and 6 cm from the top of the frame.

    • The bottom cutouts begin at 4 cm and 6 cm from the bottom of the frame.

    • While the top edge adhesive softens, note the following:

    • There are two ambient light sensors near the corners. Don't insert your pick more than 1 mm here.

    • The front-facing camera and additional sensors are in the center of the top edge. Don't insert your pick here—there is less than 1 mm of adhesive and you may damage the components.

    • For everywhere else, don't insert your pick more than 5 mm to avoid damaging the screen.

    • Throughout this guide, keep track of each screw and reinstall it exactly where it came from.

    • Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the two screws securing the upper cable shield:

    • One 1.8 mm-long screw

    • One 1.4 mm-long screw

    • Your top sensor assembly is composed of four sensors:

    • Two ambient light sensors

    • One proximity sensor

    • One microphone

    • You'll need to separate each sensor from the screen before removing the entire assembly.

    • Insert one arm of your angled tweezers between the proximity sensor cable and the screen.

    • Slide the tweezers toward the screen while prying to separate the sensor from the screen.

    • This might take significant force and multiple iOpener heating cycles.

    • During reassembly, perform the following:

    • Align the top sensor assembly on your replacement screen.

    • Use Tesa tape, or similar double-sided tape, to secure the cables to the screen.

    • Use E6000 adhesive, or similar adhesive, to secure the sensors to their cutouts on the screen.

Conclusione

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

Compare your new replacement part to the original part—you may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before you install it.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.

Where do you suggest ordering the replacement screen parts to complete the repair?

Michael Bailey - Replica

Hi Michael.

I apologize that we don't sell the screen; we should at some point! For sourcing a genuine, OEM part, that's going to be a tricky. You can try your luck on 3rd party websites (I'm not sure I can in good faith endorse any specific ones), or you can find a salvaged part off of resellers like eBay. Use your best judgement when making purchases from any of these retailers.

Alex Diaz-Kokaisl -

Can the sensor assembly just be replaced as opposed to reusing the old one? Or it is like the Face ID on an iPhone?

rcr6264 - Replica

Hi there.

Unfortunately, as stated in the introduction, the sensor assembly is paired to the logic board. You will lose Face ID and True Tone if you don't transfer the original assembly.
