camera replacement and disassembly procedure sipad Mini 4 all 13 steps
[iPad Mini 4 Camera Replacement STEP 1]
On this page, you can check how to remove the front camera and rear camera of the iPad Mini 4.
Although the camera is a part that does not break down easily, even if it starts, it will fall, and if it appears as if garbage has entered, there is a possibility that it will be fixed if you replace it because there is a possibility of camera failure.
In order to remove both cameras, it is necessary to remove the liquid crystal, so I would like to remove the liquid crystal first, but the liquid crystal is fixed with double-sided tape, so i will add heat to the red part and peel it off.
If you can add heat, it will be easier to work with suction cups, vacuum lifters, etc.
[iPad Mini 4 Camera Replacement STEP 2]
If you can float the liquid crystal even a little, the work efficiency will be improved if you try to insert a pick etc. into the gap, but please be careful because there is a possibility that you will break the screen if you try to push it forcibly.
[iPad Mini 4 Camera Replacement STEP 3]
When the liquid crystal floats to some extent, it is possible to lift it like an image, and be sure to lift it from the top (camera side) at this time.
In addition, there is a home button and cable relationship on the lower side, but the home button of the iPad Mini 4 has fingerprint authentication, so please be careful because you will never be able to use fingerprint authentication again if you break it by any chance.
Even if you break it by any chance and perform a home button exchange, the function of fingerprint authentication is paired with the main body side, so you can only use the "normal button" without fingerprint authentication.

It is a scene seen from the front by causing a liquid crystal.
Because there is a connector of the liquid crystal in the lower right part, I will decompose it.
[iPad Mini 4 Camera Replacement STEP 5]
There are three red frames in total, but the leftmost side is the connector of the battery, so please remove it first.
It is a way to remove, but you can easily remove it by using the tool (plastic) and lifting it upward from the bottom.
If you can remove the connector of the battery, let's remove the connector on the liquid crystal side (middle, right side) in the same manner.
[iPad Mini 4 Camera Replacement STEP 6]
Now it was possible to separate the body side and the liquid crystal side.
Both the front camera and the rear camera are on the main body side, so please keep the LCD.
[iPad Mini 4 Camera Replacement STEP 7]
The left side of the image is the front camera and the right side is the rear camera (back camera), but I would like to remove it from the rear camera first.
There is a black cushion on the iron plate of the arrow part, but it is only attached with double-sided tape, so it will peel off to the upper side using the tool.
[iPad Mini 4 Camera Replacement STEP 8]
Because the screw is hidden under the black cushion of the previous, two screws that secure the plate are removed.
Then, please keep it because the plate also come off at the same time.
[iPad Mini 4 Camera Replacement STEP 9]
Under the plate is a rear camera connector, which is removed from the bottom to the top using the tool as shown in the image.
[iPad Mini 4 Camera Replacement STEP 10]
If it is possible to remove the connector of the previous, It will continue to break the main body side, but it is slightly stiff because it is fixed with a part bond around the body.
[iPad Mini 4 Camera Replacement STEP 11]
The rear camera could be removed.
Next, the front camera is removed, but the one enclosed in red becomes the connector of the front camera.
Let's remove the connector in the same way as when the rear camera was removed.
[iPad Mini 4 Camera Replacement STEP 12]
The cable part is stopped with a light tape, but it is possible to peel off easily.
The camera is fixed with cushioned tape below, but let's remove each cushion.
