I dropped my iPad Mini 2 and the glass shattered. I heard about iFixIt as an amazing DIY repair site from many YouTuber channels and I didn't want to pay someone to fix it. So I decided to give them a try.
The repair almost went 1-2-3 easy. The guide is very well detailed. I didn't feel lost at any given any given moment. The first replacement has a Home button that didn't respond. Contacted Support, they were quick, polite, and set up for a replacement within minutes. The second repair went easy as well.
While testing the replacement, I noticed sometimes, the screen to incidentally look like it is being pressed. I suspected it something was making contact from underneath, so I quickly I tried to redo the installation and made sure everything was tight and nothing is obstructing the digitizer. I then hopped ont he knowledge boards and found this:
I gave it a try, elevated the digitizer slightly with some tape and it worked perfectly. Because the parts are sourced from 3rd party, not Apple, I won't hold this against iFixIt, they provide an amazing service and guides. Without them, I would probably had to pay $200 for Apple to fix it.
Overall, amazing product, service, and experience. Also, bought their Pro Tech Toolkit, very nice mix of microtools.
