Inleiding

Follow this guide to remove or replace the home button assembly on an iPad mini 5 Wi-Fi. You may need to do this if your home button has stopped working.

Note that the original home button in this device is paired to the logic board, and swapping in a new button will disable Touch ID functionality.

For your safety, discharge the battery below 25% before disassembling your device. This reduces the risk of a dangerous thermal event if the battery is accidentally damaged during the repair. If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.

Some photos in this guide are from a different model and may contain slight visual discrepancies, but they won't affect the guide procedure.

    • 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.

    • Apply a suction cup halfway up the heated side.

    • Be sure the cup is completely flat on the screen to get a tight seal.

    • While holding the iPad down with one hand, pull up on the suction cup with strong, steady force to create a gap.

    • Depending on the age of your device, this may be difficult. If you have trouble, apply more heat and try again.

    • Be careful to only lift the glass enough to insert an opening pick—any more and you risk cracking the glass.

  4. iPad mini 5 Wi-Fi Home Button Assembly Replacement: stap 4, afbeelding 1 van 2 iPad mini 5 Wi-Fi Home Button Assembly Replacement: stap 4, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • While holding the glass up with the suction cup, insert the point of an opening pick into the gap between the glass and body of the iPad.

    • Don't insert the opening pick any deeper than 2 mm into the side of the display. Inserting the pick deeper than 2 mm could damage the backlight assembly, LCD display, or touchscreen.

    • Apply a replacement gasket to the home button.

    • The iPad mini 4's replacement gasket fits on the iPad mini 5, but it is slightly larger. Make sure it doesn't overlap the screen's adhesive so that the screen can be properly adhered to the frame.

    • To install the home button:

    • Rotate the home button so that the home button cable sits where it was before disassembly. Make sure the home button cable can be inserted into its ZIF connector.

    • Center the home button so that it fits into its slot in the screen. Then, press down firmly on the gasket to adhere it to the screen.

Conclusie

Compare your new replacement part to the original part—you may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before installing.

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.
