Einleitung

Use this guide to replace the battery in your iPad mini 6.

This iPad uses both stretch-release and normal adhesives to hold the battery in place. Use plenty of high concentration isopropyl alcohol to help remove the battery and to clean any adhesive residue.

For your safety, discharge the battery below 25% before disassembling your tablet. This reduces the risk of fire if the battery is accidentally damaged during the repair. If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.

You'll need replacement adhesive in order to complete this repair.

  1. iPad Mini 6 Battery Replacement, Apply tape to a cracked screen: Schritt 1, Bild 1 von 3 iPad Mini 6 Battery Replacement, Apply tape to a cracked screen: Schritt 1, Bild 2 von 3 iPad Mini 6 Battery Replacement, Apply tape to a cracked screen: Schritt 1, Bild 3 von 3
    • 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.

  2. iPad Mini 6 Battery Replacement, Heat the bottom edge: Schritt 2, Bild 1 von 1
    • Completely power off your device before you begin.

    • Apply a heated iOpener to the bottom edge of the device for 90 seconds to loosen the adhesive underneath.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the device.

    • Repeat the heating, slicing, and leaving opening picks for the remaining edges of the device.

    • When you slice near the front camera, don't insert the pick more than 1.5 mm to avoid damaging or smearing the camera.

  9. iPad Mini 6 Battery Replacement, Reposition the screen: Schritt 9, Bild 1 von 3 iPad Mini 6 Battery Replacement, Reposition the screen: Schritt 9, Bild 2 von 3 iPad Mini 6 Battery Replacement, Reposition the screen: Schritt 9, Bild 3 von 3
    • If there's still resistance around the edges of the screen, use an opening pick to cut the adhesive again.

    • Don't try to remove the screen all the way yet; it's still connected to the frame by a flex cable.

    • With the bottom of the device facing you, pull the right edge of the screen up and towards the left edge of the device.

    • Rest the screen upside down and parallel to the frame before continuing.

    • Don't twist the screen or move it too far away from the frame to avoid damaging the flex cable.

    • Before you begin the procedure, note the following:

    • There are four stretch release adhesive pull tabs that have to be removed to separate the adhesive underneath the battery.

    • The remainder of the adhesive is located on the top edge of the battery, near the connector; keep this in mind when inserting a plastic card.

    • Pull the strip out slowly and steadily at a low angle. Give it plenty of time to stretch and un-stick from under the battery.

    • If the adhesive strip breaks off, try to retrieve it using your fingers or blunt tweezers, and continue pulling—but do not pry under the battery.

    • Repeat the process on all four stretch release adhesive strips.

  18. iPad Mini 6 Battery Replacement, Apply isopropyl alcohol: Schritt 18, Bild 1 von 1
    • Take care not to puncture or bend the battery with your tool—a punctured or bent battery may leak dangerous chemicals or cause a fire. In case you're struggling to pull up the battery, apply more isopropyl alcohol and try again.

    • Apply a few drops of high concentration (over 90%) isopropyl alcohol to the gaps surrounding the battery's top edge.

  19. iPad Mini 6 Battery Replacement: Schritt 19, Bild 1 von 2 iPad Mini 6 Battery Replacement: Schritt 19, Bild 2 von 2
    • Tilt the top edge of the device upward to allow the isopropyl alcohol to work its way underneath the battery.

    • Hold for 1–2 minutes to allow time for the isopropyl alcohol to weaken the adhesive.

  20. iPad Mini 6 Battery Replacement, Separate the battery's adhesive: Schritt 20, Bild 1 von 3 iPad Mini 6 Battery Replacement, Separate the battery's adhesive: Schritt 20, Bild 2 von 3 iPad Mini 6 Battery Replacement, Separate the battery's adhesive: Schritt 20, Bild 3 von 3
    • Insert a plastic card into the gap between the battery's top edge and the frame.

  21. iPad Mini 6 Battery Replacement, Remove the battery: Schritt 21, Bild 1 von 3 iPad Mini 6 Battery Replacement, Remove the battery: Schritt 21, Bild 2 von 3 iPad Mini 6 Battery Replacement, Remove the battery: Schritt 21, Bild 3 von 3
    • Pry up with the plastic card to separate the battery from the frame.

    • Remove the battery.

    • If there's any alcohol remaining, use a lint-free cloth to wipe it off or allow it to dry before installing a new battery.

    • During reassembly, remove the old adhesive and apply stretch release adhesive strips, double sided adhesive tape, or pre-cut adhesive to secure the new battery.

    • Do not reuse the battery after it has been removed, as doing so is a potential safety hazard.

Abschluss

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

For optimal performance, calibrate your newly installed battery after completing this guide.

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.
