Home button gasket compatability

IPAD mini 4. I can't find a direct replacement. Are there other MINI's that use the same gasket?

The entire assembly came apart when replacing the LCD / Digitizer.

What I have looks like a shim that was glued to the glass, followed by what looks like the rubber gasket.

If and when I find the part, does it reassemble as follows?

1) attach shim washer to glass

2) attach rubber to shim.

3)attach button to rubber.

4) glue down bracket.

I'm hoping if there is a replacement part it includes the shim and rubber as one.

Thank you.... Everyone!

The IPAD AIR 2 is compatable and available from multiple sources.


tjmurf, Yes the link I provided says, Replacement for iPad Air 2 / iPad Mini 4 / iPad Pro and would be available at multiple sources.


tjmurf, I am wondering if you received a satisfactory solution. I have found a source of Home Button, Bridge, Rubber Gasket and Shim all in one packet.

However, I am at a loss as to the correct method of fitting the gasket and shim and can find no instructions on-line. Any new ideas?
