Inleiding

Follow this guide to replace the screen on an iPad mini 5 Wi-Fi. You may need to do this if the screen is cracked or has stopped working.

This guide also shows how to transfer the original home button and magnetic sensor to the replacement part.

Note that only the iPad’s original home button assembly will be capable of Touch ID functionality. If you would like to maintain Touch ID functionality, you’ll need to transfer your original home button assembly to the new screen.

Some replacement screens don't come with a magnetic sensor installed. Without a magnetic sensor, the iPad won’t be able to sleep and wake when using a Smart Cover. It may also cause the power button to not be able to sleep and wake the iPad. AssistiveTouch may also lose its sleep and wake functionality. Without a magnetic sensor, holding down the power button to prompt the power off slider will still wake the screen. The home button will also still wake the screen.

Transferring the magnetic sensor requires advanced soldering skills. The magnetic sensor cable is soldered to the screen. Make sure to follow soldering safety procedures such as wearing eye protection, working in a well-ventilated area, and washing your hands with soap and water after soldering.

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 Screen Replacement: stap 4, afbeelding 1 van 2 iPad mini 5 Wi-Fi Screen 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.
