Screen replacement compatible with XR?

My iPhone 11 screen has cracked and I cant find an 11 lcd screen replacement to buy anywhere online to repair myself. After some looking for picture of both the XR and the 11 under the display and the screens itself they look very very similar. Could I possibly buy an XR display and use it on the 11 with it fitting properly?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The display modules look the same, but you can’t install the screen from iPhone XR to iPhone 11 because they have technical incompatibilities.

No. They may look the same but they both have something that prevents you from using a xr screen on a 11

Apple is too smart for this trick :) Iphone 7 and 8 screen was working on one phone, but for example in iphone 7 screen from 8 makes phone warm, and this could cause motherboard issues.

There is a way I saw someone put a 11 screen on an Xr but they used some sort of device to transfer serial numbers from one screen to the other or something like that. But don’t trust me I could be entirely wrong.

you cannot interchange 11 & XR or vice versa! See video.

connectors are different.
