Apple iPad Air Home Button Flex Cable Replacement Part
The Home Button is a crucial iPad Air component, and it relies on a flex cable to work correctly. This cable can get damaged, making it necessary to install a new version in its place. With the Apple iPad 5 Air Home Button flex cable replacement part, this is a simple task for a professional to achieve.
While the large, high-resolution touchscreen of the iPad Air may be the focus of your fingertip attention for a lot of the time, Apple has not completely done away with physical keys on its cutting-edge tablet.
In fact, the functionality of the Home Button has been expanded to make it more than just an input that pulls you out of apps and back to the home screen; it lets you take care of multitasking duties, launch the voice capabilities of Siri and much more besides.
The Home Button is hooked up to the main logic board of the iPad via a flex cable, which is a component that can be all too easily damaged if the button itself needs to be repaired. Faults in the flex cable may also arise without a hint that anything else is wrong with the tablet, leaving other iPad 5 parts intact while this component causes you grief.
Real Repair Results
This iPad Air spare from iParts4u consists solely of the flex cable for the Home Button but does not include a replacement button itself, which is important to bear in mind when you are looking for new components for your Apple tablet.
The flex cable is entirely compatible with the iPad Air so will fit in with every fifth-generation model of the iPad range, irrespective of the amount of onboard storage or type of connectivity it offers.
You should not attempt to use this part with any other iPad variant, or indeed any non-Apple product. And this component is not shipped in any kind of retail packaging, since it is an OEM unit that will allow for a professional to make the necessary repairs to an iPad Air with a damaged or malfunctioning Home Button flex cable.
This part is hot off the production line and so will function just as you would expect a new component to do, giving your iPad a fresh chance to operate as originally intended.
Whatever the fate that has befallen the original flex cable of your iPad Air, this replacement will do the work of transferring inputs from your tablet’s Home Button so that they can be detected and acted upon by the rest of the hardware and software.
The Home Button can take a lot of punishment through repeated presses, so it is entirely possible for the original flex cable to suffer from wear and tear earlier than any of the other components. So rather than getting rid of your iPad Air, you can repair it with this part that will give you a fully restored Home Button experience that will last for a long time to come.
