Follow this guide to remove or replace the display assembly on an iPad mini 5 Wi-Fi. You may need to do this repair if you have a cracked screen or the display has stopped working.
'''Note that only the iPad’s original home button assembly will be capable of using the Touch ID functionality.''' If you would like to maintain Touch ID functionality or your replacement part does not include a home button, follow the [guide|143705|screen and digitizer replacement guide|new_window=true].
'''Some display assembly replacements don’t come with a magnetic sensor installed.''' Without a magnetic sensor, the iPad won’t be able to sleep and wake when using a Smart Cover. It’s likely that a missing magnetic sensor will cause the power button to not be able to wake and sleep the iPad. AssistiveTouch may also lose its wake and sleep functionality. In the case that a magnetic sensor isn’t installed, holding down the power button to prompt the power off slider will wake the screen. The home button will also still wake the screen.If you are going to transfer the original magnetic sensor to the new display assembly, follow the [guide|143705|screen and digitizer replacement guide|new_window=true].
'''For your safety, discharge the battery below 25% before disassembling your device.''' This reduces the risk of a dangerous thermal event if the battery is accidentally damaged during the repair. If your battery is swollen, [[What to do with a swollen battery|take appropriate precautions|new_window=true]].
Some photos in this guide are from a different model and may contain slight visual discrepancies, but they won't affect the guide procedure.
Compare your new replacement part to the original part—you may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before installing.
'''To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.'''
