iPad and iPhone parts replacement

by alexford

My Problem

Well a few years ago my son dropped our iPad and broke the screen, My Brother in law though he could fix it and did a ok job but used a cheap screen. That screen broke and the bottom edge a year or so ago and I have just dealt with it. So, when a coworkers iPhone dock connector started acting up I thought I would get a screen at the same time

My Fix

Easy on the iPhone but a little hard on the iPad. I think I might have messed up the WiFi antenna but have not really tested the new screen (because it seems the thing has to be down for you to do that and that puts me in a catch 22)

My Advice

Make sure you read through the guides BEFORE you start that might have stopped me from nicking the WiFi antenna (though how the glue was done by the formor repair it might not have mattered)
