Hi Chunglin! This is the only teardown iFixit will create for this particular iPad. We’ll also post repair guides at some point, as always.

Hi,

The Itouch Id sleep/wae button of my Ipad Air 4 has been damaged, I notice that there is a small crack and it “heats up” when the Ipad is on.

At the moment I am unable to find the Itouch ID button. Does anyone know where I can buy it?

Thank you

Cheers

Well.. Note that there have been NO repairs available for Touch ID since iPhone 5s, because the sensor and the processor matched one-to-one. I’m not a professional so I don’t exactly know this thing for Air 4, but I’m sure that you can’t replace Touch ID by yourself. I recommend that you go to the Genius Bar.
