I need help with a Digitizer/Glass replacement (LCD is okay)!
Hello guys! So, I got an iPad Pro 9.7 and after an accident the glass is shattered but the LCD behind it is all right. The touch functions also work perfectly, even in the sections where the glass is broken.
So, I went ahead and bought a Digitizer/Glass advertised as coming "with tape replacement" (forgive me if I am mistaken, but I think Digitizer/Glass refer to the same component, at least in this case?). Here it is:
"New Assembly For iPad Pro 9.7" LCD Display Touch Screen Digitizer Lens Glass With Tape Replacement"
So, I have been watching videos and for this specific iPad I only seem to find guides and videos of people replacing the whole thing (LCD + Digitizer). In my case I only want to replace the digitizer. In some videos such as this one (iPad Air 2) there seems to be a glue (OCA) holding the LCD and the digitizer together (and a bunch of specialized equipment involved) but for other iPad models there appears to be no glue and appears to be much easier to do such as here. So.... 2 questions my friends:
1- Any of you have experience with the pro 9.7? will there be glue similar to the iPad Air 2? any tips or any other video that you can suggest of another iPad model that is the most similar to mine?
2- What tools would you recommend? I am thinking about purchasing this:
A) iOpener kit: iOpener
or the Essential Electronics toolkit: Essential Electronics Toolkit
Which kit do you recommend?
and B) Some tape:
polyimide: Polyimide Tape
61395: Tesa 61395 Tape
Which tape do you recommend?
And last but not least... what other tools would you suggest? I already have a heat gun, but if you can think of anything else please let me know.
Thank you so much for any help that you can provide me with!!
