Wat je nodig hebt

  1. iPad Pro 11" 1st Gen Screen Replacement, Prepare your iPad for disassembly: stap 1, afbeelding 1 van 1
    • Allow your iPad's battery to fully drain before starting this repair. A charged battery may catch fire if damaged during the repair.

    • Unplug any cables and fully shut down your iPad.

    • While your iPad looks uniform from the outside, there are delicate components under portions of the screen. To avoid damage, follow instructions exactly as written and note the following areas as you open your iPad:

    • Camera module, ambient light sensors, proximity senor, and front microphone

    • Display cables

    • Screen magnets

    • LCD edges

  3. iPad Pro 11" 1st Gen Screen Replacement, Heat the right edge: stap 3, afbeelding 1 van 1
    • Apply a heated iOpener to the right edge of the screen for two minutes.

    • You can also use a hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate—but extreme heat can damage the screen and/or internal battery, so proceed with care.

  4. iPad Pro 11" 1st Gen Screen Replacement, Anti-Clamp instructions: stap 4, afbeelding 1 van 3 iPad Pro 11" 1st Gen Screen Replacement, Anti-Clamp instructions: stap 4, afbeelding 2 van 3 iPad Pro 11" 1st Gen Screen Replacement, Anti-Clamp instructions: stap 4, afbeelding 3 van 3

    • The next three steps demonstrate the Anti-Clamp, a tool we designed to make the opening procedure easier. If you aren't using the Anti-Clamp, skip down three steps for an alternate method.

    • For complete instructions on how to use the Anti-Clamp, check out this guide.

    • Pull the blue handle backwards to unlock the Anti-Clamp's arms.

    • Place an object under your iPad so it rests level between the suction cups.

    • Position the suction cups near the middle of the right edge—one on the top, and one on the bottom.

    • Hold the bottom of the Anti-Clamp steady and firmly press down on the top cup to apply suction.

    • If you find that the surface of your iPad is too slippery for the Anti-Clamp to hold onto, use tape to create a grippier surface.

  5. iPad Pro 11" 1st Gen Screen Replacement: stap 5, afbeelding 1 van 3 iPad Pro 11" 1st Gen Screen Replacement: stap 5, afbeelding 2 van 3 iPad Pro 11" 1st Gen Screen Replacement: stap 5, afbeelding 3 van 3
    • Pull the blue handle forward to lock the arms.

    • Turn the handle clockwise 360 degrees or until the cups start to stretch.

    • Make sure the suction cups remain aligned with each other. If they begin to slip out of alignment, loosen the suction cups slightly and realign the arms.

  6. iPad Pro 11" 1st Gen Screen Replacement: stap 6, afbeelding 1 van 2 iPad Pro 11" 1st Gen Screen Replacement: stap 6, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • Wait one minute to give the adhesive a chance to release and present an opening gap.

    • If your screen isn't getting hot enough, you can use a hair dryer to heat along the right edge of the iPad.

    • For complete instructions on how to use a hair dryer, check out this guide.

    • Insert an opening pick under the screen when the Anti-Clamp creates a large enough gap.

    • If the Anti-Clamp doesn't create a sufficient gap, apply more heat to the area and rotate the handle clockwise half a turn.

    • Don't crank more than a half a turn at a time, and wait one minute between turns. Let the Anti-Clamp and time do the work for you.

    • Skip the next step.

  7. iPad Pro 11" 1st Gen Screen Replacement, Insert an opening pick: stap 7, afbeelding 1 van 3 iPad Pro 11" 1st Gen Screen Replacement, Insert an opening pick: stap 7, afbeelding 2 van 3 iPad Pro 11" 1st Gen Screen Replacement, Insert an opening pick: stap 7, afbeelding 3 van 3
    • If your screen is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction cup to adhere. Alternatively, very strong tape may be used instead of the suction cup. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction cup to the broken screen.

    • Apply a suction handle to the right edge of the screen, about 5 cm from the bottom edge.

    • Pull up on the suction handle with firm, constant pressure to create a gap large enough to insert an opening pick.

    • Only create a gap small enough to insert an opening pick. Overbending the screen will damage it.

    • Insert the tip of an opening pick into the gap.

    • Don't insert the opening pick more than 5 mm or you'll damage the LCD.

  8. iPad Pro 11" 1st Gen Screen Replacement, Separate the right edge adhesive: stap 8, afbeelding 1 van 3 iPad Pro 11" 1st Gen Screen Replacement, Separate the right edge adhesive: stap 8, afbeelding 2 van 3 iPad Pro 11" 1st Gen Screen Replacement, Separate the right edge adhesive: stap 8, afbeelding 3 van 3
    • Insert a new opening pick in the gap you just created.

    • Slide the pick along the right edge to separate the adhesive.

    • When sliding near the volume buttons, don't insert the pick more than 2 mm or you'll damage the screen magnets.
