iPad 2 Take Apart Guide:

This written take apart repair guide shows how to disassemble the iPad 2 quickly and safely. This guide was designed to help you replace a cracked or damaged touch screen glass digitizer, and damaged and faulty LCD display screens, as well as other internal faulty parts such as speakers, flex cables, and buttons.

  • Separate the Screen by putting the flat tool in and gently work the adhesive. Use a heat gun or hair dryer to warm the outside edges of the device, releasing the adhesive. There is a cable under the glass attached from the home button glass. Carefully detach it. Add a little bit of pressure to lift the screen. The digitizer cable is held on the lower left hand side.
  • You will see 4 small Phillips screws. Remove the screws. Lift the LCD and you will see a slightly different lock bar. Lift the lock bar up to slide the cable out and separate the LCD.
  • Once the LCD is separated, you will see the 2 digitizer cable. You will also need to remove the 2 Phillips screws which are blocking the clips for the digitizer cable.


  • Gently lift up the two digitizer cable clips and slide the digitizer cable out of the socket.
  • For the front-facing camera, you will notice that it has a cable that runs through a connector for the headphone jack and is controlled together in one socket.
  • Lift the clips of the cable controlling the front camera and headphone jack. The cable is adhered so gently slide something underneath the cable to lift it up.


  • Pull out the 2 Phillips screws in the headphone board. Slightly slide up the cable. You will see two connectors. Slide a flat tool between the cable and the back of the camera. The front camera and headphone module is now removed.
  • Next separate the dock connector and Wi-Fi antenna which is located on the bottom of the iPad 2. You can see a piece of tape over the connection so you would need to loosen it a bit. Once loosened and removed, lift the connector out of the socket. The connector is underneath the speaker connection. Remove the 2 Phillips screws on the dock connector. The dock connector slides right out of the socket.
  • Take out the screws for the wifi antenna. Lift up the cable. To completely remove the antenna, you would need to remove the logic board first.
  • Lift the cable connector up. Remove the screws that are holding the logic board in place. The board is adhered so slightly pry it up using a flat tool.
  • The antenna comes up with the logic board. It is connected by a standard connection. You can then take it out.
  • Once the logic board is removed, you can gently lift up the battery as it is only held in place with adhesive.


  • Remove the tape near the speaker assembly to remove the speaker. Once the tape is removed, you can slowly remove the speaker assembly.
  • Take out the screws that are holding the connectors in place. You will see several thin cables so be sure to carefully pull these out. Remove the iPad 2 back. Remove the screws and gently prying it up to loosen the camera.
  • Using a flat tool, gently slide the daughter board out of its connectors. There is a small piece of tape connecting the cables to the daughter board. Unwrap the tape and lift the daughter board from its socket.
  • Gently pull the cables. Be very careful with the cables as they easily tear.
  • Remove the hold switch, volume rocker.
  • Using the tweezers, gently pry up the microphone.
  • Poke the switch in to remove the switch assembly and the hold switch.
