Will iPad Air 9.7 display fit iPad Pro 9.7?

I have a cracked iPad Pro 9.7 screen. I recently acquired an iPad Air 9.7 with a perfect display. DPI and resolution appear to be the same. Any chance that the Air screen would connect and work in the Pro?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

@tahseenlegacy while I do agree with your answer of not fitting I question that it is an AMOLED display. It is my understanding that iPad Pro has an LED-back-lit display with Apple's True Tone technology and both displays continue to be IPS LCD displays.


@oldturkey03 I *think* the only places AMOLED is used by the high end iPhones starting with the X. You can tell by how they break when dropped. I don't like most - if not almost all AMOLED based phones. IPS LCD is fine, and it doesn't break because you hurt it's feelings and stings you with a high repair cost. The tendency to screen burn also puts me off to it unless I have no choice but AMOLED.

AMOLED phones usually lose the screen - but the glass is fine. AMOLED scales poorly beyond giant smartphones.


@nick yup I know ;)


Thanks, I figured it was a long shot, but worth asking.
