    • If your display 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 display until the whole face is covered.

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

    • 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.

    • The following steps involve using an iOpener to soften the adhesive holding the front panel assembly in place. When using the iOpener, be sure to heat it in the microwave for no more than 30 seconds.

    • Handling it by the tabs on either end, place a heated iOpener over the top edge of the iPad.

    • Let the iOpener sit on the iPad for two minutes to soften the adhesive securing the front panel to the rest of the iPad.

    • While the iPad looks uniform from the outside, there are delicate components under certain portions of the front glass. To avoid damage, only heat and pry in the areas described in each step.

    • As you follow the directions, take special care to avoid prying in the following areas:

    • Home Button

    • Front Facing Camera

    • Main Camera

    • 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 arms to rest above and below the screen.

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

    • Position the suction cups near the top edge of the iPad—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 9.7" Rear Camera Replacement: passo 5, immagine 1 di 3 iPad Pro 9.7" Rear Camera Replacement: passo 5, immagine 2 di 3 iPad Pro 9.7" Rear Camera 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.

    • Firmly pull up on the suction cup to create a small gap between the front panel and the rear case.

    • Do not pull too hard or you may shatter the glass.

    • Once you've opened a sufficient gap, insert an opening pick into the gap to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

    • Slide the pick along the edge of the display, towards the headphone jack.

    • If there is still a considerable amount of resistance when sliding the opening pick, repeat the iOpener heating procedure and apply additional heat.

    • Don't insert the pick past the bezel into the display area, or you will damage it.

    • A good rule of thumb is to never insert the opening pick more than a quarter inch into the iPad.

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

    • Ensure that the iFixit logo on the battery blocker is facing up.

    • Slide the battery blocker underneath the left side of the logic board's battery connector at a 35 degree angle.

    • The battery blocker's right prong should slide between the left side of the logic board's battery connector and the battery's contact pads. The left prong should slide under the logic board.

    • Don't push the battery blocker underneath the connector or logic board with excessive force. If you're having trouble fitting the battery blocker underneath the logic board, refer to the next step for information on loosening the logic board. You can also try using a playing card to disconnect the battery instead.

    • The battery blocker or playing card should slide under the logic board without encountering any blockages. After insertion, they should rest at a 15 degree angle.

    • Leave the battery blocker in place as you work.

    • If the battery blocker doesn't easily slide under the logic board, follow these steps to partially loosen the logic board from the frame:

    • Apply a few drops of high-concentration (90% or higher) isopropyl alcohol under the logic board to the left and right of the battery connection.

    • Wait one minute for the isopropyl alcohol to weaken the adhesive under the logic board.

    • Try to insert the battery blocker. If the logic board doesn't easily lift up, apply a few more drops of isopropyl alcohol.

    • This doesn't apply when using the playing card method to disconnect the battery because the playing card is only inserted between the battery connector and the battery contact pads.

  35. iPad Pro 9.7" Rear Camera Replacement, Remove the display bracket screws: passo 35, immagine 1 di 1
    • Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the three 1.3 mm Phillips screws securing the display cable bracket.

  45. iPad Pro 9.7" Rear Camera Replacement, Remove the upper speaker: passo 45, immagine 1 di 2 iPad Pro 9.7" Rear Camera Replacement, Remove the upper speaker: passo 45, immagine 2 di 2
    • Lift and remove the upper speaker from the frame.

    • There are multiple cables under the upper speaker. Be careful not to damage them while removing it.

    • If any cables are still attached to the upper speaker while you lift it up, carefully peel them off of the upper speaker. You can apply more isopropyl alcohol if they don't easily peel away.

    • If the ZIF connector sticker near the front camera comes off while removing the upper speaker, reapply it to the ZIF connector.

    • If the ZIF connector near the front camera disconnects while removing the upper speaker, use the pointed end of a spudger to flip up the locking flap. Then, reinsert the ribbon cable and close the locking flap.

    • During reassembly, make sure the right ambient light sensor is on top of its shelf.

    • If there's any alcohol solution remaining in the device, carefully wipe it off or allow it to air dry before reinstalling the upper speaker.

  46. iPad Pro 9.7" Rear Camera Replacement, Disconnect the rear camera: passo 46, immagine 1 di 2 iPad Pro 9.7" Rear Camera Replacement, Disconnect the rear camera: passo 46, immagine 2 di 2
    • Use the pointed end of a spudger to disconnect the rear camera's press connector from its socket.

    • Be careful to pry only under the edge of the connector, and not under the socket itself. If you pry under the socket, you will separate it from the circuit board.

    • To reconnect, align the connector carefully over its socket and press down with your fingertip—first at one side, then the other—until it clicks into place.

    • Do not press down on the middle until the connector is fully seated—if it's misaligned, the connector can bend, causing permanent damage.

  47. iPad Pro 9.7" Rear Camera Replacement, Pry up the rear camera: passo 47, immagine 1 di 2 iPad Pro 9.7" Rear Camera Replacement, Pry up the rear camera: passo 47, immagine 2 di 2
