    • Completely power down your iPad before you begin.

    • If your screen glass is cracked, keep further breakage contained and prevent bodily harm during your repair by taping the glass.

    • Lay overlapping strips of clear packing tape over the iPad's screen until the whole face is covered.

    • This will keep glass shards contained and provide structural integrity when prying and lifting the screen.

    • Do your best to follow the rest of the guide as described. However, once the glass is broken, it will likely continue to crack as you work, and you may need to use a metal prying tool to scoop the glass out.

    • Wear safety glasses to protect your eyes, and be careful not to damage the LCD screen.

    • Removing the screen involves using an opening pick or halberd spudger to separate the adhesive securing the screen to the frame.

    • As you slice through the adhesive, note the following:

    • The top has a large patch of thick adhesive. You'll need to slice 1/2" deep in order to cut the adhesive.

    • Don't slice deeper than 2 mm along the long edges of the iPad, or you risk damaging the display panel.

    • The lower edge also has thick patches of adhesive, but there are delicate flex cables in each corner. Don't slice deeper than 1/4" around the lower corners.

    • To help mark the iPad's orientation, you can apply a piece of tape to the top edge of the iPad screen.

  3. iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement, Heat the left edge: passo 3, immagine 1 di 2 iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement, Heat the left edge: passo 3, immagine 2 di 2
    • Heat an iOpener and lay it over the left edge of the iPad to soften the adhesive holding the screen in place.

    • Alternatively, you can use a heat gun, hair dryer, or heat pad.

    • Be careful not to overheat the iPad—the display and internal battery are both susceptible to heat damage.

    • Wait about two minutes for the adhesive to soften before proceeding to the next step. The edge should be slightly too hot to the touch.

    • The next two 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 two steps for an alternate method.

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

    • Elevate the iPad enough for the Anti-Clamp's hinges to rest above and below the screen.

    • Pull the blue handle towards the hinge to disengage opening mode.

    • Position the suction cups near the left edge of the screen—one on the front, and one on the back.

    • Push down on the cups to apply suction to the desired area.

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

  5. iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 5, immagine 1 di 3 iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 5, immagine 2 di 3 iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 5, immagine 3 di 3
    • Push the blue handle away from the hinge to engage opening mode.

    • Turn the handle clockwise until you see the cups start to stretch.

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

    • Wait one minute to give the adhesive a chance to release and present an opening gap.

    • 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 two steps.

  6. iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement, Loosen the screen adhesive: passo 6, immagine 1 di 1
    • Attach a suction cup to the left edge of the iPad's screen, above the Smart Connector port.

    • While holding down the corners of the iPad, repeatedly pull up on the screen, then ease it back down to weaken the adhesive. This will eventually create a small gap in the seam.

    • If the edge cools down during the pulling process, reheat the edge with an iOpener before proceeding.

    • Once you've created a small gap, insert the tip of an opening pick into the gap.

    • Don't insert the pick more than 2 mm, or you risk permanently damaging the display panel.

    • Lay a hot iOpener along the bottom left corner of the iPad, spanning from the opening pick to the home button.

    • After letting the adhesive soften, insert an opening pick or halberd spudger into the gap next to the Smart Connector.

    • Be careful not to insert the halberd spudger more than 2 mm.

    • Use an opening pick or halberd spudger to slice the adhesive along the bottom left side of the iPad. If the slicing becomes difficult, reheat the edge and try again.

  9. iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 9, immagine 1 di 1

    • Reheat your iOpener and lay it over the top edge of the device. Wait a couple minutes for the adhesive to soften.

    • Use an opening pick to slice through the top edge of the iPad, stopping before you reach the front-facing camera.

    • The adhesive is thicker along the top. You'll need to slice 1/2" deep—about the thickness of the top bezel.

    • If the slicing becomes hard, reheat the edge and try again.

  13. iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 13, immagine 1 di 2 iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 13, immagine 2 di 2
    • Insert an opening pick just before the front-facing camera to keep the adhesive from resealing.

    • Use an iOpener to heat the lower edge of the iPad.

    • Insert an opening pick or a halberd spudger blade 1/4" into the lower right corner of the iPad.

    • Slide the opening pick along the lower edge of the iPad, stopping short about 1/2" before reaching the home button.

    • Each lower corner has a thick patch of adhesive, but there is also a delicate flex cable. Don't slice deeper than 1/4" around the corner to prevent damaging the flex cable.

  19. iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 19, immagine 1 di 2 iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 19, immagine 2 di 2
    • Slide the tip of an opening pick or a halberd spudger to cut the adhesive below the home button.

  20. iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 20, immagine 1 di 2 iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 20, immagine 2 di 2
    • After you slice below the home button, reinsert the tip of an opening pick or a halberd spudger blade 1/4" into the lower edge.

    • Slice along the lower edge until you reach the opening pick.

  21. iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 21, immagine 1 di 1
    • At this point, you've sliced through most of the screen adhesive. Use an opening pick to carefully slice any remaining adhesive along the edges until the screen is freed. If some parts are stubborn, heat the area with an iOpener to loosen the adhesive.

  22. iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 22, immagine 1 di 3 iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 22, immagine 2 di 3 iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 22, immagine 3 di 3
    • The display cables in this iPad are very short. Read the next two steps before you proceed.

    • Do not pivot the screen about the lower edge. The display cables don't have enough slack to allow for this and will tear if you do not slide the screen towards the front-facing camera as you lift.

    • The display cables will tear if you raise the screen more than 80º.

    • Lift up the upper edge of the screen and slide the entire screen towards the front-facing camera to access the iPad's internal components.

    • Use masking tape to tape the lower edge of the screen to the frame to prevent the screen from slipping.

  23. iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement, Prop up the screen: passo 23, immagine 1 di 3 iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement, Prop up the screen: passo 23, immagine 2 di 3 iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement, Prop up the screen: passo 23, immagine 3 di 3
    • This step shows one way to support the screen using masking tape. You can also turn the iPad sideways. Make sure not to strain the display cables with whatever method you choose.

    • Attach a long strip of masking tape to the top edge of the screen. Fold the tape over the edge and make sure that the tape is attached securely.

    • Attach the other end of the strip to the bottom edge of the iPad frame to hold the screen at an angle. Make sure the tape attaches securely to the frame.

  24. iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement, Disconnect the battery: passo 24, immagine 1 di 1
    • It's important to disconnect the battery before you proceed further. Detaching or connecting the display cables with the battery plugged in can cause a short that will destroy touchscreen functionality.

    • Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the nine screws securing the logic board EMI shield:

    • Eight 1.2 mm screws

    • One 2.4 mm screw

  25. iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 25, immagine 1 di 3 iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 25, immagine 2 di 3 iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 25, immagine 3 di 3
    • Lift the logic board EMI shield from the edge nearest the top of the iPad.

    • Peel up and remove the EMI shield from the logic board.

    • This takes a bit of force due to the many tiny clips securing the shield, and the shield may deform slightly. That's okay—try to keep the deformation to a minimum, and it will lay flat when you reinstall it and screw it down.

    • Remove the logic board EMI shield.

  26. iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 26, immagine 1 di 1
    • Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the 1.8 mm screw securing the battery connector.

    • These photos show what the battery connector looks like underneath the logic board. Use these photos as a reference while you safely disconnect the battery.

    • Notice that the battery connector has springs on the logic board that press down against the battery contact pads. You'll need to slide something thin and flexible between the contact points to disconnect the battery.

  28. iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 28, immagine 1 di 2 iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 28, immagine 2 di 2
    • Make a battery blocker using a playing card and slide it underneath the logic board connector to disconnect the battery.

    • You can also use an iFixit battery blocker. Be very careful and don't push the battery blocker underneath the connector with excessive force.

    • Leave the blocker there to prevent the battery connector leads from making contact until you have completed your repairs.

  29. iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement, Disconnect the screen: passo 29, immagine 1 di 2 iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement, Disconnect the screen: passo 29, immagine 2 di 2
    • Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the three screws securing the display cable bracket:

    • Two 2.4 mm screws

    • One 1.2 mm screw

    • Remove the display cable bracket.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to pry up and disconnect the display and digitizer cables from their logic board sockets.

    • To re-attach press connectors like this one, carefully align and press down on one side until it clicks into place, then repeat on the other side. Do not press down on the middle. If the connector is misaligned, the pins can bend, causing permanent damage.

    • These cables are very delicate, and the connectors can damage easily if they're misaligned. When you reattach the cables to the logic board, try to have as much slack on the cables and gently press the connectors onto their sockets.

    • The home button bracket is held in place with strong adhesive.

    • Apply a few drops of isopropyl alcohol to the base of the home button bracket.

    • Alternatively, you can use a heated iOpener to loosen the adhesive.

  38. iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 38, immagine 1 di 2 iPad Pro 12.9" Screen Replacement: passo 38, immagine 2 di 2
    • Insert the edge of an opening tool under the home button bracket lip.

    • Pry up with steady force to loosen the bracket.

    • The adhesive holding this bracket can be stubborn. Apply more isopropyl alcohol or heat if it doesn't budge.

    • Remove the home button bracket.

    • Be careful when you remove the home button bracket. There may be a small plastic washer wedged between the bracket and the button. If there is, be sure to retain this washer for reinstallation.

    • During reassembly, after installing the home button, you'll need to glue this bracket into place to secure it.

    • Scrape off as much of the old adhesive residue as you can, then clean it with acetone or high concentration (>90%) isopropyl alcohol.

    • Secure the bracket with E6000 glue, superglue, or high-strength double-sided tape. Make sure the bracket is aligned correctly before allowing your adhesive to cure, or the home button will not click when pressed.

    • When you install a replacement screen:

    • Remove all packing tape.

    • Peel any adhesive liners from the flex cables and press the cables in place onto the display panel.

    • Fold and connect the flex cable in the bottom left corner of the screen.

    • Don't peel and expose the perimeter adhesive until you've tested your repair and are ready to seal up the iPad.

Conclusione

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 installing.

To reassemble your device, follow the above steps in reverse order.

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

Hello there OK so I have 2 screens with 2 different connectors one L shaped (which is on the new screen) and the old cracked screen has a rectangular type? I’m not sure rather it’s a 1gen/2nd gen type of problem? I’m about to grab my hot air gun to completely disassemble the cracked screen, as maybe I’m missing something? Any assistance is welcome… well actually please help me with this before I get a headache since this has totally frustrated me and i’ve had this sitting for nearly 2 1/2 months now but it’s about that time that I readdress this in attempt to fix it.

Hi, does your replacement screen have the home button assembly included? Otherwise there's need of soldering the assembly to it before it can be installed.

hi

does anyone knows why there is a foam adhesive in thr back of the screen ? do i need to put back when i replaxe screen ?

thanks

screensguy - Replica

I suppose the foam adhesive is similar to the one on the back of the 6s screens. I guess it has more of a heat dissipation function or is meant to absorb any pointy pressure points from inside that may develop (loose screw, sand, dirt...)

hi
