In short, yes you can repair your iPad and replace the screen on it. It is a bit of a complicated process that requires you to use some tools and you have to know exactly what you are doing.
It involves taking off the glass that is already there using a heating gun and razors. You have to be careful with both of those tools because they can be tricky to work with and you absolutely must avoid wires and cables.
Makes sure to be careful because the screen can crack and splinter quite a bit, which can and will cut you and could even harm the device. Don’t let any shards go into the iPad itself.
Now Here Comes The Hard Part, Actually Doing It
This is also the point where things might become a little scary. As the broken glass is being pried and stressed in the removal process, there’s a good chance that it will begin to splinter and break.
Take care not to cut the iPad camera cabling when your razor’s in that area. This process can take quite a while, so you want to make sure that you take your time.
Then, you’ll have to make sure the connections are okay and make a swap with some things on this screen to use on your new one. Then, you have to add the new glass. This can be difficult and requires a precise hand to get everything to line up properly.
The LCD and the glass are separate on most models, so that adds another layer to the process.
