Well, we did it. DIY iPad screen replacement is possible, even for us!
Between watching tutorial videos on YouTube and actually performing the repair, we spent about 9 person-hours. Next time would be a lot faster. We liked the irony of using the dictionary I got for a high school graduation present to weight the screen down while the new adhesive set up.
- If you use a hair dryer to soften the old adhesive instead of a real heat gun, it takes a lot longer
- Nothing beats Goof-Off
- “Spudging” is a great word to have in your vocabulary
