Use this guide to replace the rear-facing main camera on an iPad 5 Wi-Fi.

Be very careful when you isolate the battery using a battery blocker. The battery contacts are easily damaged, resulting in irreversible damage to the logic board. If you choose to complete the guide without isolating the battery, avoid using metal tools except when completely necessary (like when removing screws) to prevent shorting the battery and damaging sensitive circuit components.

    • We recommend that you clean your microwave before proceeding, as any nasty gunk on the bottom may end up stuck to the iOpener.

    • Place the iOpener in the center of the microwave.

    • For carousel microwaves: Make sure the plate spins freely. If your iOpener gets stuck, it may overheat and burn.

  2. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 2, image 1 of 1
    • Heat the iOpener for thirty seconds.

    • Throughout the repair procedure, as the iOpener cools, reheat it in the microwave for an additional thirty seconds at a time.

    • Be careful not to overheat the iOpener during the repair. Overheating may cause the iOpener to burst.

    • Never touch the iOpener if it appears swollen.

    • If the iOpener is still too hot in the middle to touch, continue using it while waiting for it to cool down some more before reheating. A properly heated iOpener should stay warm for up to 10 minutes.

  3. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 3, image 1 of 1
    • Remove the iOpener from the microwave, holding it by one of the two flat ends to avoid the hot center.

    • The iOpener will be very hot, so be careful when handling it. Use an oven mitt if necessary.

    • If you don't have a microwave, follow this step to heat your iOpener in boiling water.

    • Fill a pot or pan with enough water to fully submerge an iOpener.

    • Heat the water to a boil. Turn off the heat.

    • Place an iOpener into the hot water for 2-3 minutes. Make sure the iOpener is fully submerged in the water.

    • Use tongs to extract the heated iOpener from the hot water.

    • Thoroughly dry the iOpener with a towel.

    • The iOpener will be very hot, so be careful to hold it only by the end tabs.

    • Your iOpener is ready for use! If you need to reheat the iOpener, heat the water to a boil, turn off the heat, and place the iOpener in the water for 2-3 minutes.

    • If your display glass is cracked, keep further breakage contained and prevent bodily harm during your repair by taping the glass.

    • Lay overlapping strips of clear packing tape over the iPad's display until the whole face is covered.

    • This will keep glass shards contained and provide structural integrity when prying and lifting the display.

    • Do your best to follow the rest of the guide as described. However, once the glass is broken, it will likely continue to crack as you work, and you may need to use a metal prying tool to scoop the glass out.

    • Wear safety glasses to protect your eyes, and be careful not to damage the LCD screen.

  6. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 6, image 1 of 2 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 6, image 2 of 2
    • Handling it by the tag, place the heated iOpener on the side of the iPad to the left of the home button assembly.

    • Let the iOpener sit for at least a minute to soften the adhesive beneath the glass.

    • While the iPad looks uniform from the outside, there are delicate components under the front glass. To avoid damage, only heat and pry in the areas described in each step.

    • As you follow the directions, take special care to avoid prying in the following areas:

    • Front-facing camera

    • Antennas

    • Display cables

    • Carefully place a suction cup halfway up the heated side.

    • Be sure the cup is completely flat on the screen to get a tight seal.

    • While holding the iPad down with one hand, pull up on the suction cup to slightly separate the front panel glass from from the rear case.

    • If your iPad's screen is badly cracked, covering it with a smooth layer of clear packing tape may help the suction cup adhere. Alternatively, use a strong piece of tape (such as duct tape) and fold it into a handle.

    • Place an opening pick in the gap opened by the suction cup.

    • Don't insert the opening pick any deeper than the black bezel on the side of the display. Inserting the pick too far may damage the LCD.

    • Pull the suction cup's plastic nub to release the vacuum seal and remove the suction cup from the display assembly.

  10. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 10, image 1 of 1
    • Reheat and replace the iOpener.

    • Be careful not to overheat the iOpener during the repair procedure. Always wait at least ten minutes before reheating the iOpener.

    • Continue moving the opening pick down the side of the display to release the adhesive.

    • If the opening pick gets stuck in the adhesive, "roll" the pick along the side of the iPad, continuing to release the adhesive.

  13. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 13, image 1 of 3 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 13, image 2 of 3 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 13, image 3 of 3
    • Take the first pick you inserted and slide it up toward the top corner of the iPad.

    • If you can see the tip of the opening pick through the front glass, don't panic—just pull the pick out just a little bit. Most likely, everything will be fine, but try to avoid this as it may deposit adhesive on the front of the LCD that is difficult to clean off.

  14. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 14, image 1 of 1
    • Reheat the iOpener and place it on the top edge of the iPad, over the front-facing camera.

    • Be careful not to overheat the iOpener during the repair procedure. Wait at least ten minutes before reheating the iOpener.

    • If you have a flexible iOpener, you can bend it to heat both the upper left corner and the upper edge at the same time.

  15. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 15, image 1 of 3 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 15, image 2 of 3 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 15, image 3 of 3

    • Leave the opening pick in the iPad slightly past the front-facing camera.

    • Take a second pick and insert it to the left of the camera, and then slide it to the corner of the iPad to finish cutting the adhesive on that edge.

  19. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 19, image 1 of 3 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 19, image 2 of 3 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 19, image 3 of 3
    • Insert the previous pick deeper into the iPad and slide it away from the camera toward the corner.

  20. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 20, image 1 of 1
    • Leave the three picks in the corners of the iPad to prevent re-adhering of the front panel adhesive.

    • Reheat the iOpener and place it on the remaining side of the iPad—along the volume and lock buttons.

  21. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 21, image 1 of 2 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 21, image 2 of 2
    • Slide the opening pick around the top right corner of the iPad, releasing the adhesive there.

    • Leave this pick in place to keep the adhesive from re-sealing itself, and grab a new pick for the next step.

  22. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 22, image 1 of 3 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 22, image 2 of 3 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 22, image 3 of 3
    • Insert a new opening pick and slide it to the middle of the right edge of the iPad, releasing the adhesive as you go.

    • The display cables are located approximately halfway from the bottom of the iPad. Stop sliding the pick when you get ~4.5" from the bottom of the iPad.

  23. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 23, image 1 of 1
    • Leave the opening picks in place, and set the reheated iOpener on the home button end of the iPad.

  24. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 24, image 1 of 3 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 24, image 2 of 3 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 24, image 3 of 3
    • Slide the lower left pick to the lower left corner to cut the adhesive on that corner.

    • Leave the pick at the corner. Do not pry any farther, and do not remove the pick from the iPad.

    • The third image shows the two antennas and the home button cavity in the lower case of the iPad.

    • The following steps will direct you where to pry to avoid damage to these components. Only apply heat and pry where directed.

    • Leave the pick from the last step in place to prevent the adhesive from re-sealing.

    • With a new pick, slice gently over the left-hand antenna, stopping before the home button.

    • Only slide the pick from the outer edge toward the center of the iPad. Do not move the pick back toward the outer edge, as moving in this direction may damage the antenna.

    • If you need to slide the pick over the lower section more than once, remove it and re-insert at the outer edge, and slide inwards.

    • Leave the pick in place before moving on.

  26. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 26, image 1 of 3 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 26, image 2 of 3 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 26, image 3 of 3
    • Take a new pick and slip it in to the right of the previous pick.

    • Slide across the home button and right-hand antenna using only the very tip to remove the adhesive.

  27. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 27, image 1 of 3 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 27, image 2 of 3 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 27, image 3 of 3
    • With the adhesive loosened, you can now insert the pick near the right-hand corner. Slide the pick to the left, and stop just short of the Home button.

    • Just like with the left antenna, only slide from the outer edge toward the center. Reversing this direction may damage the antenna.

  28. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 28, image 1 of 1
    • Reheat and reapply the iOpener to the volume control side of the iPad.

  29. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 29, image 1 of 2 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 29, image 2 of 2
    • Be very careful with this step. Take your time and ensure the adhesive is hot and soft, and that you've been through all of the adhesive with an opening pick. Don't be afraid to stop and reheat.

    • On the side of the iPad opposite the volume controls, you should have a pick lodged into each corner. Twist the picks to lift the glass slightly, separating the last of the adhesive along the display cable edge.

    • If you encounter a significant amount of resistance, leave the picks in place, reheat, and reapply the iOpener to the problem areas.

  30. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 30, image 1 of 2 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 30, image 2 of 2
    • Lift slowly and gently to further detach the adhesive along the display cable edge.

  31. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 31, image 1 of 3 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 31, image 2 of 3 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 31, image 3 of 3
    • While supporting the front panel glass, use an opening pick to cut the last of the adhesive.

    • Be very careful not to cut or damage any of the display cables.

  32. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 32, image 1 of 2 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 32, image 2 of 2
    • Once all of the adhesive has been separated, open the glass panel like a page in a book and rest it on your workspace.

    • During reassembly, clean the remains of the adhesive from the case (and the front glass if you are re-using it) with isopropyl alcohol, and replace the adhesive using our display adhesive application guide and pre-cut adhesive strips.

    • It's easy to pinch a flex cable between the front glass and the iPad's frame during reassembly. Be mindful of the flex cables and make sure they gently fold and tuck under the frame. If the folds in a flex cable are pressed completely flat, it may be damaged beyond repair.

    • Do not attempt to fully remove the LCD. It is still connected to the iPad by several cables at the home button end. Lift only from the front-facing camera end.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to pry the LCD out of its recess just enough to grab it with your fingers.

    • Flip the iPad LCD like a page in a book, lifting near the camera and turning it over the home button end of the rear case.

    • Be gentle and keep an eye on the LCD cables as you flip the display over.

    • Lay the LCD on its face to allow access to the display cables.

    • Set the LCD down on a soft, clean, lint-free surface.

    • Remove the single 2.3 mm Phillips screw securing the battery connector to the logic board.

    • To reduce the risk of a short, you can insert a battery blocker or a modified opening pick to disconnect the battery.

    • Be very careful when you isolate the battery using a battery blocker. The battery contacts are easily damaged, resulting in irreversible damage.

    • Slide the battery blocker underneath the battery connector area of the logic board, and leave it in place while you work.

    • If you are having trouble fitting the battery blocker underneath the logic board, you can try using a playing card to disconnect the battery.

  36. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 37, image 1 of 1
    • Remove the three 1.4 mm Phillips screws from the display cable bracket.

  37. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 38, image 1 of 2 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 38, image 2 of 2
    • Use the flat end of a spudger to gently pry the display cable bracket straight up from the logic board.

    • The display cable connector is adhered to the underside of the bracket, so don’t push the spudger too far under the bracket, or you may damage the connector.

  38. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 39, image 1 of 1
    • Remove the LCD.

  39. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement, Front Panel Assembly: step 40, image 1 of 2 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement, Front Panel Assembly: step 40, image 2 of 2
    • Remove any tape covering the home button ribbon cable connector.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to flip the tab on the home button ribbon cable ZIF connector upward.

    • Carefully pull the home button ribbon cable horizontally out of the ZIF connector.

  41. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 42, image 1 of 3 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 42, image 2 of 3 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 42, image 3 of 3
    • Use a the flat end of a spudger or a fingernail to carefully pop the two digitizer cable connectors straight up from their sockets.

    • To avoid damaging your iPad, pry only on the connectors themselves, not on the socket on the logic board.

  42. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 43, image 1 of 2 iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 43, image 2 of 2
    • Carefully peel the home button ribbon cable up off of the adhesive holding it to the rear case.

    • Remove the front panel assembly.

    • During reassembly, wipe any dust or fingerprints off of the inside of the front panel assembly to ensure a clean display.

    • If you experience "ghost" or "phantom" touch input issues with your new display, this can be resolved by adding a layer of very thin insulating tape, such as Kapton (polyimide) tape, to the highlighted areas on the back of the panel. iFixit panels come with the proper insulation, and should not require the addition of any tape.

    • Without the proper insulation, these areas of the digitizer can ground out against other components, causing touch input malfunction.

    • The insulation is not visible to the naked eye, and is different from the foam dust barrier strips found on many iPads.

  43. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement, Upper Component Cable Bracket: step 45, image 1 of 1
    • Remove the three 1.4 mm Phillips #000 screws securing the upper component cable bracket.

  44. iPad 5 Wi-Fi Rear Facing Camera Replacement: step 46, image 1 of 1
    • Remove the upper component cable bracket.

    • If you have the Wi-Fi/Cellular model, your iPad will look slightly different and will require the removal of two additional screws to access components covered by this bracket.
