Buying a replacement 1st-gen display: what do I need to know?
I have a 1st-gen 12.9” iPad Pro (A1652) which needs its display replacing: both width ends of the display have a blue-ish tint, looking almost as if the display has two different colour temperatures (from what I’ve previously read, this issue seems to be the ‘screen lottery’ issue that other owners have shared).
As I’m on a tight budget, I want to attempt replacing the display myself. I’ve found replacement displays on eBay and AliExpress with varying prices, but no obvious difference between them (except some are without a digitiser).
Before I buy one, I thought I should ask if there’s anything specific I need to be aware of for choosing a replacement display? Anything I should absolutely avoid or particular quality issues to know about? Any recommendations? Thank you.
