How does the Ipad Air screen replacement digitizer cable fold and glue

Hi Guys

How does the Ipad Air screen replacement digitizer flex cable fold and where does the adhesive on the flex cable stick down? I can't find the information anywhere, would you be able to post a photo how this is done on a replacement screen?


Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Luke,

It's a bit hard to explain, but the adhesive from the flex cable should end up sticking to the inside of the frame next to the LCD. When you lay down your new digitizer, you will put down the right side first, pushing the digi cable assembly directly down between the LCD and frame.

We have an iPad air video we recently posted, see if it helps:
