Tag Archives: iPad 3 digitizer
Posted on March 1, 2012
RepairLabshas already brought you exclusive images of the iPad 3 back housing. Now, just days before the official launch, this iPhone repair service can show you more pictures of Apple's latest release.
The picture above is the iPad 3 digitizer. This part controls the iPad's touch function, as well as includes your front glass. As you can see from our images, not much has changed in the look of your iPad. With the back housing in hand, and now with this piece, we can confirm your iPad will look a lot like the iPad 2, just that 1mm thicker. The picture above also proves that we will have the home button on the iPad 3, contrary to some reportsthat came out yesterday. We also can see that Apple is planning to have both black and white models of the iPad 3, which is not surprising.
Another change we have noticed is the digitizer connection. That difference between the iPad 3 and the digitizer part for the iPad 2 does confirm that the logic board will be different, just as we surmised by looking at the back housing.
Although there are quite a few internal changes coming for the iPad 3, including that much-anticipated LCD screen, the digitizer proves that Apple has not made any radical form changes to your favorite device.
