Repair Tip of the Week: Applying Kapton Tape

As many of you know, applying Kapton tape to iPad Air and iPad Mini digitizers is vital in ensuring the device does not experience ghosting once the repair is complete.

While all of our iPad Air and Mini digitizers come pre-taped now, it’s important to know where to apply Kapton tape in the event you encounter digitizers without it.

For the iPad Mini: 

Apply the Kapton tape to the left and the right of the home button, almost completely to the edge of the digitizer.



For the iPad Air:

Apply the Kapton tape around the perimeter of the digitizer, against the edge of the glass.
