This manual shows you how to remove the damaged iPad Pro 12,9” display and replace it with a completely new LCD assembly. Please note 2 things before you begin:
the home button is paired with the logic board of the iPad. During replacement of the display you therefore must transfer the home button onto the new LCD assembly, so the iPad does not lose the Touch ID function
Before you begin the repair process, check whether the new replacement part already contains the IC daughterboard. If it is already included, proceed according to this manual. If it its not a part of the replacement part, you will have to disassemble the daughterboard from the old part and transfer it onto the new one, which requires special micro tools. If you attempt to perform this replacement at home, we advice you to procure a new replacement part with this board.
Be careful, not to damage the LCD screen during replacement and protect you eyes with protection glasses.
To detach the LCD assembly from the rest of the iPad body you will need a halberd spudger.
Refer to these photos from time to time during replacement, as they show where are the tick parts of the adhesive located and how deep you can cut in with the spudger.
Do not exceed the depth of 2 mm underneath the front panel as this could permanently damage the display!
Do not flip the display over the bottom edge of the iPad. Lift it only through the upper edge above the front camera
Lift the display into a maximum of 80° angle. The display cable is short and and therefore may rip if lifted further.
At this moment it is crucial to disconnect the battery before you continue. Disconnecting or connecting the display cables without a disconnected battery may cause cut off and damage the touchscreen
Procedure of disconnecting the battery:
To unstick the EMI cover you may need to use more power due to the number of clips and the cover may slightly deform. This is okay, simply try to deform it as little as possible and it will easily fit back in
The size of the tool which you use to block will probably not fit. Insert its pick under a slight angle underneath the logic board near the connector, first from one side and gradually underneath the whole area of the connector
After replacing the part, reassemble the iPad using this manual in reversed order.
