    • 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.

    • 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 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement: Schritt 24, Bild 1 von 2 iPad 5 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement: Schritt 24, Bild 2 von 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.

  25. iPad 5 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement: Schritt 25, Bild 1 von 2 iPad 5 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement: Schritt 25, Bild 2 von 2
    • Lift the left edge of the digitizer upwards to further separate the adhesive along the right edge of the iPad.

  27. iPad 5 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement: Schritt 27, Bild 1 von 2 iPad 5 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement: Schritt 27, Bild 2 von 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.

    • 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.

  32. iPad 5 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement: Schritt 32, Bild 1 von 1
    • Remove the three 1.4 mm Phillips screws securing the display cable bracket.

  33. iPad 5 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement: Schritt 33, Bild 1 von 2 iPad 5 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement: Schritt 33, Bild 2 von 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.

  34. iPad 5 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement: Schritt 34, Bild 1 von 1
    • Remove the LCD.

  35. iPad 5 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement, Front Panel Assembly: Schritt 35, Bild 1 von 1

    • 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 straight out of the ZIF connector.

  37. iPad 5 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement: Schritt 37, Bild 1 von 3 iPad 5 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement: Schritt 37, Bild 2 von 3 iPad 5 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement: Schritt 37, Bild 3 von 3
    • Use 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.

    • Remove the front panel assembly.

    • If the home button ribbon cable sticks to the iPad's rear case, don't try to force it. Gently peel it off the case using a pair of tweezers, and then you can fully remove the front panel assembly.

    • 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.

    • Gently begin peeling the home button cable off the back of the front panel.

    • Continue peeling until you reach the metal shield on the cable.

  40. iPad 5 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement: Schritt 40, Bild 1 von 2 iPad 5 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement: Schritt 40, Bild 2 von 2
    • Insert an opening pick between the metal shield and the front panel and gently pry it from the digitizer.

  41. iPad 5 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement: Schritt 41, Bild 1 von 2 iPad 5 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement: Schritt 41, Bild 2 von 2
    • Gently peel the metal contact from the home button bracket.

    • Use a plastic opening tool to pry the home button bracket off the back of the front panel.

    • When reattaching the home button bracket, use a dab of adhesive or double-sided tape to secure the bracket in place.

    • Once you've separated one side of the home button bracket, firmly grasp the bracket and peel it off the front panel.

  43. iPad 5 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement: Schritt 43, Bild 1 von 2 iPad 5 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement: Schritt 43, Bild 2 von 2
    • Press the home button from the external side of the digitizer to break up the adhesive holding it in place.

    • Apply pressure slowly. The adhesive is attached to a delicate gasket that will tear easily.

  44. iPad 5 LTE Front Panel Assembly Replacement: Schritt 44, Bild 1 von 1
    • Remove the home button assembly.

I was able to complete this repair although the screen on the iPad that I was trying to repair was completely shattered and I ended up having to just take it out in chunks. A little more detail about best practices in that situation would be good. I also am having some issues with the home button not being quiet right after the repair and now that I am seeing that I would have purchased a replacement for the adhesive holder piece when I got the screen. It is working fine for now and I plan to just be careful with it so I don’t have to pull the display again and risk messing up the screen adhesive and having to order another set of that again too.

I agree, it seems most repair instructions tend to be ‘only’ with intact glass! A non-intact glass can cause a series of other problems. This as some others seems to be an incomplete page. Sorry love your site, but keeps repeating.

JoeBlog - Antwort

It didn´t work for me. I did this repair 2 times.

At the first try, the front glass was not totaly fixed, so I I used 10 strong clamps to get a better connection, but the glass was not really fixed and broke again with a new one.

So I tried twice. I cleaned everything very well, waited half an hour before I put the glass on the ipad. I put it on a flat surface on top with some haevy gear for 24 hours. After only some days the glass lost connection at the right down side where the cables are. So the display got a crack again.

I asked ifixit to fix this.

They told me: This is my fault.

Most likely you did not route the display cables down into between the housing and the lcd this is tricky if done right and the chassie is not bent and no debre is left the screen should adhear no problem. I have done many of these with no issues.

I like the instructions for how to get the new panel on "do this all in reverse, completely useless. I want to know how to glue the home button back onto the new panel, where to run each wire now that the tape is all removed, how to get the new screen on, seems half done. Can we just update it to have reassembly instructions. also the kit no longer comes with that tool and it says "skip ahead to alternative" and there is none, and the suction cup is 100% useless, it does not suck at all, no matter how perfect the glass is under it or how hard you press it on, you can just blow on it and it will move, no force at all required and it immediately comes off. Just forget the toolkit, but the screen and watch some youtube videos, this guide and toolkit are useless.
