We have entered the era of technological development, especially that which is connected to telephony and tablets, jewels of technology that can make life much easier thanks to the thousands of applications that can be downloaded for free or for a fee.
At the same time, however, they are much more fragile than the old mobile phones, for example, it is possible that it may happen that ours iPad mini can slip out of our hands and clash against the floor causing the glass to break; at this point you are almost forced to replace the glass of the iPad mini.
From some recent statistics it has been shown that about 10% of iPad mini owners will accidentally break the glass within the first year of purchase. If this happens, there is absolutely no need to despair, as it can be repaired even at very reasonable costs!
How is the iPad glass made?
Before understanding how to compensate for the damage, let's try to understand how the Ipad glass is made: its greater knowledge will allow us to understand the best way for us to repair the damage.
What are the constituent elements:
- Digitizer (or digitizer)
- Protection shield
First, it's definitely important to know that the display of theiPad mini is formed by two layers, the superficial one, the glass, and the most fundamental part, the LCD panel. Obviously we understand right away that we can repair the glass of theIPad mini is definitely much easier, faster and above all economical compared to the LCD panel.
The digitizer it is the very thin component that contains the metal oxide layer and the sensors of the capacity variation.
The LCD display (English acronym of Liquid Crystal Display) is the screen that, illuminated by a lamp or a series of LEDs, will display what the graphics processor will process.
And, finally, to be able to cover both these very delicate components, we find a transparent screen. The material changes from model to model and from manufacturer to manufacturer, but must always be transparent to 100% and as resistant as possible.
For the protection screen, it is possible to use glass polymers, or modern alloys in fiberglass and silicates, very resistant.
Attention: when it is said "very resistant", it is not meant "indestructible". For now, unfortunately, nothing indestructible has been created ... And (probably) never will be.
The real problem is that broken glass could damage the LCD below it; at this point, ours iPad mini will present itself with showy glass cracks and with multicolored lines, synonymous with damaged glass and LCD.
