Just to elaborate on Daniel's answer...

The iPad mini 4 has a fused display assembly (LCD is glued to the digitizer), similar to those found on the iPhone and Air2/Pro iPad models. Technically speaking, if only the digitizer is damaged, it can be replaced independently but this requires a repair shop that has a full suite of tools for screen refurbishment. It is certainly not a DIY repair and even an experienced tech will not get good results unless they have the proper tools. AFAIK, very few people refurbish iPad screens.

I have no trouble replacing just the digitizer and you dont need a "full suite" of tools. Just a tech that knows what their doing.

Where can I get a replacement digitizer for the iPad Mini 4, without buying the whole LCD + Digitizer assembly?


you can find them on ebay. tho as minho says its not an easy repair for someone that hasnt done it before as the lcd and digitiser are glued together
