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

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

    • While you're waiting for the adhesive to loosen, note the following:

    • The areas at the top and bottom of the screen are sensitive to prying.

    • Don't insert a pick more than 3 mm to avoid damaging the screen.

    • There's a long circuit board attached to the screen that sits parallel to the left edge.

    • Don't insert a pick more than 1.5 mm to avoid damaging the circuit board.

    • The first two images are mirrored for demonstration purposes.

    • Once the screen is warm to touch, apply a suction handle to the bottom 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 screen and the frame.

    • Insert an opening pick into the gap between the frame and the screen.

    • Don't insert the pick more than 1.5 mm to avoid damaging the circuit board.

    • 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.

    • 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.
