Do I have to swap the face id hardware after a screen replacement?

I have replaced my screen in a straight swap with another iPad but the face ID is no longer working. Does this mean I have to pull off the old face ID wiring and add it to the new screen? Surely Apple has removed this hardware blocking by now, especially with new right-to-repair legislation?

Definitely still have to move over any components from the original Face ID assembly to the new display. This is still the case on iPhones as well.

Also any right to repair legislation that I know of still hasn’t been finalized per se, the bill in New York still has not been signed by the governor. So it’s not law yet. Plus it typically takes about a year before these policies are enforced. You can’t just flip a switch overnight and expect compliance from business the next day. As much as that would be nice.
