iPad Pro 9.7"
iPad Pro 9.7" Lightning Connector
Replace the lightning connector and its cable for a 9.7 inch iPad Pro. This part requires micro soldering.
The iPad Pro 9.7" is smaller version of Apple's original 12.9" high performance tablet. Like its larger counterpart, the Pro 9.7" features an A9X processor, support for the Apple Pencil, and a 4-speaker audio setup.
Identifying the 9.7-inch iPad Pro can be difficult, as it has the same physical dimensions and weight as the iPad Air 2. Compared to the Air 2, the Pro features a three-pin Smart Connector along its left edge, as well as speaker grilles on the top and bottom edges. The Pro's model number, A1673 (Wi-Fi Only) or A1674 (Wi-Fi and Cellular), is etched on its rear case.
The most common repairs for the 9.7 inch iPad Pro are replacing a cracked front glass screen or a dead battery. The iPad Pro 9.7" front glass panel is held to the aluminum case with strips of adhesive. Once the device is opened, this adhesive will need to be replaced.
The iPad Pro 9.7" earned a 2 out of 10 in iFixit's repairability assessment. Watch the Teardown Review for more:
