Use this guide to replace a broken screen (a.k.a. display or front panel assembly) on an iPad Pro 10.5”. The screen consists of a glass touch panel or digitizer fused to an LCD. This entire assembly must be replaced as a single unit.

Note that the fingerprint scanner in the home button is paired to the iPad's logic board. In order to maintain Touch ID functionality after your repair, you must keep the original home button and transfer it onto the new screen as instructed below.

This repair can fix issues like a cracked glass digitizer, a non-responsive touchscreen, or a broken LCD.

You’ll need replacement adhesive to reattach components when reassembling the device.

  1. Strong adhesive holds the screen in place. In order to separate it, you'll first need to heat and soften the adhesive using an iOpener, hair dryer, or heat gun.
    • Strong adhesive holds the screen in place. In order to separate it, you'll first need to heat and soften the adhesive using an iOpener, hair dryer, or heat gun.

    • You may need to reapply heat repeatedly throughout this process to prevent the adhesive from cooling and hardening.

    • Prepare an iOpener and place it on the bottom edge of the iPad's screen for about two minutes.

  2. If your iPad's screen is badly cracked, wear skin and eye protection. Cover the screen with a smooth layer of clear packing tape to contain glass shards and help the suction cup adhere. Alternatively, use a strong piece of tape (such as duct tape) and fold it into a handle.

    • Place a suction cup next to the iPad's home button and press down to create a seal.

    • To get the most leverage, place the suction cup as close to the edge as possible without going past the edge of the display.

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

    • Don't pull too hard, or you may shatter the glass. If necessary, apply more heat to further soften the adhesive.

    • Once you've opened a sufficient gap, insert an opening pick into the gap.

  3. Slice through the adhesive under the screen by sliding the pick along the edge of the display, towards the bottom left corner. Leave the pick in place temporarily to prevent the adhesive from re-sealing.

    Be super carful at the sides! If you insert your pick more than ~2mm, you will separate your display and front glass.

  4. Apply heat to the left edge of the iPad for about two minutes, or until it's slightly too hot to touch comfortably. If necessary, re-heat your iOpener for a few seconds or until it's a bit too hot to touch. Be careful not to overheat the iOpener, or it may burst. Insert a second opening pick at the bottom left corner of the iPad.

    • Insert a second opening pick at the bottom left corner of the iPad.

    • Slide the second opening pick along the left side of the display to separate the adhesive underneath.

    • Leave the opening pick inserted near the top left corner of the iPad to prevent the adhesive from re-sealing.

    • The front-facing camera is located right in the center of the iPad's top edge and can be damaged if the pick is inserted too far. Only insert the tip of the opening pick when cutting near the camera.

  7. Apply heat to the final, right edge of the iPad for about two minutes, or until it's slightly too hot to touch comfortably. Insert a fourth opening pick at the top right corner of the iPad. Slide the opening pick down to the bottom right corner to cut the adhesive.
    • Apply heat to the final, right edge of the iPad for about two minutes, or until it's slightly too hot to touch comfortably.

    • Insert a fourth opening pick at the top right corner of the iPad.

    • Slide the opening pick down to the bottom right corner to cut the adhesive.

    • Slide the opening pick around the bottom right corner—pausing to apply more heat if needed—and cut the remaining adhesive on the bottom edge, but stop before you reach the home button.

    We must be very careful when we are prying left and right size bezel to peel off the screen as there very little gap between edges and LCD. Slightly inside push can crack LCD. We need to pay full care and raising edges very very slowly.

  8. Insert a fifth opening pick at the top of the iPad near (but not directly on) the front-facing camera. Gently twist the pick to separate the display assembly from the iPad.
    • Insert a fifth opening pick at the top of the iPad near (but not directly on) the front-facing camera.

    • Gently twist the pick to separate the display assembly from the iPad.

    • Don't try to remove the display all the way yet! It is still connected to the iPad's motherboard.

    • If needed, apply more heat and/or cut any remaining adhesive that prevents the display from separating.

  9. Lift the display assembly from its top edge and carefully slide it up (towards the front-facing camera and headphone jack), until the screw that secures the battery power connector is revealed at the bottom. Don't lift the display more than 70° or you may damage the attached ribbon cables. Don't lift the display more than 70° or you may damage the attached ribbon cables.

    How do you go about getting to this battery connector as it is covered by a large metal shield above the logic board, if you do not disconnect the battery you risk frying the back light.

    • Remove the 1.9 mm Phillips screw that secures the battery power connector.

    • Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your device.

  10. These photos show what the battery connector looks like underneath the logic board. Use these photos as a reference while you safely disconnect the battery. Notice that the battery connector has cantilever springs on the logic board that press against the battery contact pads. Since both the logic board and battery are glued down, you'll need to slide something thin and flexible between the contact points to disconnect the battery.

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

    • To disconnect the battery, slide one prong of a battery blocker or the tip of an opening pick under the battery power connector to ensure the power circuit is interrupted.

    • Don't push the battery blocker underneath the connector with excessive force. If you're having trouble fitting the battery blocker underneath the logic board, you can try using a playing card to disconnect the battery instead.

    • The battery blocker or playing card ideally should slide under the logic board without encountering any blockages.

    • Leave the battery blocker in place as you work.

  12. Slowly lift the display from its top edge, being careful not to strain the attached ribbon cables. Remove the two 1.3 mm Phillips screws securing the display connector cover bracket. You may need to angle the driver slightly in order to avoid straining the ribbon cables.

    • Remove the display connector cover bracket.

    Here it is very precocious steps to do. Flx cables to connectors are small in size and we cannot lift the display vertically. Therefore, we may struggle to unscrew the metal shield. We need to use smaller size of philip screw driver or place vertically the display to create enough gap between philip screw driver and the cover bracket. Similarly, when we are replacing new display we need to be carefully connect four flex cable with connectors with logic board.

    agree, with re-assembly very tiny screws and awkward positioning, the back two cables pop off if not careful.

  13. Use a spudger to disconnect the two visible display flex connectors by gently prying them straight up from their sockets. To re-attach press connectors like this one, carefully align and press down on one side until it clicks into place, then repeat on the other side. Do not press down on the middle. If the connector is misaligned, the pins can bend, causing permanent damage.

    • During reassembly, before installing a display, remove any remaining adhesive from the iPad, and clean the glued areas with high concentration isopropyl alcohol (90% or greater) and a lint-free cloth. This helps prep the iPad for fresh adhesive and ensures that it will bond properly.

    • If you plan to reinstall your existing display, remove any remaining adhesive from the back and clean the adhered areas with isopropyl alcohol.

    • Test your iPad's functions and install pre-cut adhesive strips to the back of the display using our display adhesive application guide before sealing it up.

  16. Use your iOpener or hair dryer for about a  minute to heat the home button area in order to soften the adhesive securing the home button components.

    • Lift the home button bracket starting from the left side.

    • Carefully pull it upwards toward the display, making sure not to damage the home button cable.

    • During reassembly, after installing the home button, you'll need to glue this bracket into place to secure it.

    • Scrape off as much of the old adhesive residue as you can, then clean it with acetone or high-concentration (90% or greater) isopropyl alcohol.

    • Secure the bracket with a high bond glue, superglue, or high-strength double-sided tape. Make sure the bracket is aligned correctly before allowing your adhesive to cure, or the home button will not click when pressed.

    • It may be necessary to use vise clamps to hold the home button bracket in place as the adhesive cures.

    You cannot use Tesa or double side tape under bracket. There is some greater technique or material we need to use. I tried super glue even, though, I really not work what original clicking sounds. It happens almost all digital home button related all iPad. We need to strive to find its accurate solution.

    Tesa tape works fine!

    • If possible, turn on your iPad and test your repair before installing new adhesive and resealing it.

    When we lift home button at very last stage, there is also ring/round plastic bracket that we need to peel off and re-attached to home button when transferring to the new display.

    iRepairMan - 返信

    Do you glue the plastic ring on both sides , So is it glued to the lcd but also to the home button ?

    Hugo Lambrechtsen -

    Thanks for the tutorial, but it ends way to soon. The instructions on installing the new home button are vague, and there is nothing about when to remove the battery blocker or what adhesive is acceptable to use to reattach the screen. Would be great to see this tutorial cover everything from start to finish.

    Thomas - 返信

    The responsive click is present, but does not have any function on the screen. Is there any correlation between the click and functionality, or did I maybe destroy the cable ?

    Arved - 返信

    If it physically clicks but does not invoke any action then maybe the cable does not sit properly inside the ZIF-connector or the cable might be damaged. Try to re-connect and make sure it’s in the ZIF-connector all the way.

Do you have any suggestions for replacement displays i need a good yet cheap one.

Nicholas Klose - 返信

I’ve read the parts & tools lists multiple times, but I don’t see any mention of the new screen itself. Have I overlooked it?

Nicky - 返信

Yup…. Looking for a new screen too…. Any suggestions would be appreciated :-)

Thank you so much you made a difficult job a little easier.

I have purchased the displays from Repair Parts Plus but the adhesive does not hold very good at all. I had one device returned to me because of this and I was able to pull the display off with no heat.

Before you say it, yes I did clean it, yes I clamped it overnight.

if i have to replace my broken screen and put a new one (its funcional but broken), why is it necessary to uninstall the home button??

Juan Diaz - 返信

The home button is linked to the logic board. So when you have setup the Touch ID function you will have to use that home to keep the function. If you replace the home button you’ll loose Touch ID.

Tobias Isakeit -

Worked as described, I used the iopener and blow dryer to get the old display off. Please note, you might need help replacing the display connector cover bracket, very small screws and awkward position.
