Use this guide to replace your iPad's battery.

If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.

  1. 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.

    • Wear safety glasses to protect your eyes, and be careful not to damage the LCD screen.

  2. The iPad shown in the photos may look slightly different from your iPad, but the procedure is the same. Insert a metal spudger between the right edge of the display assembly and the rear panel assembly.

Everything done, battery charges but screen not responsive to touch when trying to input password. It switches on/off fine and I'm able to swipe the lock button but can't input password. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Battery replacement of my son's 2011 iPad 1. Once more invaluable help from ifixit as with an earlier G5 Dual 2.5 and also an iMac 27.

After the battery replacement some non responsive areas on the touch screen. Review revealed I had not relocked the digizer cable and once I did this with yet more replacement clips applied then a return to perfect function. Thanks for the invaluable help. Steve Henderson, Perth, Australia.

Great tutorial.

One thing i am not sure how to do is the battery pack itself, Where will i find the adhesive ? Thank you.

You don’t need adhesive with a new battery pack. It will hold in place with the existing adhesive and once the iPad is reassembled, it won’t fall apart.

I replaced the battery in my old iPad 1 Cellular model. What a PITA. You’ll break most of the clips, but it still holds together pretty well. There is a high risk of breaking the cellular antenna wires because the photo in this guide opening the display is for the Wi-Fi version, leaving out the location of the cellular board and the short length of the antenna wires. So one of the cellular wires broke the moment I raised the display, unaware that the wires were short. The wire pulled right out of the copper connector. No big deal. I replaced the battery just for fun to see if I could resurrect this old iPad that would no longer turn on. So I did it and it is back together and everything works except cell service, but I would never use cell service with it anyway. Wi-Fi works because the antenna is the Apple logo. Nice to boot up iOS 5.1.1, but it is worthless these days.
