How to disassemble Apple iPad 9.7'' (6th generation), Step 1/1

Step 1. Before disassembling!

⚠ī¸ Before disassembling, do not forget to turn your phone off.

Step 2. Open the touchscreen

⚠ī¸ Pay attention! Disassembly has a maximum 3rd difficulty because the process begins with the disassembly of the touchscreen. If you have no experience or are not sure of your skills, we strongly recommend that you contact a specialized service center.

⚠ī¸ Be maximum careful in the place where the Home button is located. 

We recommend using a special heating device such as a separator machine, heat gun, or heating mat. It will simplify the process. You can use a home hairdryer, but you will have to make a nozzle by hand or have a suitable one in the kit to gently heat and concentrate the heat flow in the right place.

ℹī¸ī¸ The surface of the touchscreen must be heated to soften the adhesive underneath. The approximate heating temperature is 50° C / 125° F.

Use a thin plastic film or pick for separation. To facilitate the process, you can use isopropyl alcohol. It is often most difficult to pass the tool between the parts to be divided. Choose the far edge from the FFC cables or buttons.

Do not use a lever or any force for separation that could damage the elements inside.

The process can be seen in our video entirely so as well as in detail, at the end of the instructions.

Step 6. Disconnect the battery connector

⚠ī¸ There is a trick we need to disconnect the battery connector to proceed with disassembly, but we do not have the connector. Instead, we have spring contacts like old-Nokia-style, and we can not remove the battery yet. To resolve this situation, we need to use a nonflammable, non-metallic sheet (we used a plastic one) and push between battery pads on the battery and spring contacts on the motherboard. It will give us a simple solution, and we can proceed with disassembly further.
