So, you have shattered the front screen of your iPad and don’t want to pay outrageous repair costs to fix it. The display of the iPad has two different layers. The top glass layer acts as a sacrificial protective layer for the sensitive LCD screen beneath.
If your iPad glass is scattered but the screen is still giving display and responding to touch, you are in luck! You can fix the display by replacing only the top glass panel which is a much cheaper repair than replacing the whole display.
The following is a DIY iPad glass replacement guide by Simply Fixable to help you save money by completing the repair yourself.
If your iPad screen is scattered, safety goggles are a must. During the removal process, small bits of glass can bounce off and hit the eye or imbed in the finger causing injury. So, ensuring safety and following proper protocols is a must.
Repairing the iPad glass panel and replacing it with a new one is not difficult. This process can be easily attempted by individuals that have no prior experience repairing the iPad. Since there is no special technique or complex processes involved in this repair, it gets a rating of 4 on the 1-10 difficulty scale.
Removing the old glass panel and replacing it with a new one takes 2-3 hours depending on the level of expertise of the individual. Familiarity with the tools is a big plus. Individuals that are familiar with the above-mentioned tools can complete the repair faster than the ones that are not very well versed. However, replacing the iPad glass panel takes 3 hours on average.
You can replace just the glass on iPads that contain LCD displays. These iPad include the regular series iPads, iPad Mini and iPad Air 1 and Air 2. iPads with LED displays require the replacement of the entire display. They cannot be repaired by replacing only the glass panel.
