The screen has no visible fasteners, so we reluctantly use a suction cup and opening pick to start prying from the front.

The display finally separates from the midframe, but this design is a pain:

The LCD is held in place exclusively with glue, so reassembling the device means purchasing new adhesive designed for this unit.

Even though the screen is removed from the front, the LCD and digitizer connectors are not accessible without disassembling the back side.

The home button is trapped between the front panel assembly and the midframe, so replacing this (commonly failing) part will require removing and re-adhering the display.
