Apple iPad Air Home Button Flex Cable Replacement Part

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.


    Heading Home

    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.


    New Dawn

    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.

  • iPad Air

OEM stands for “Original Equipment Manufacturer”. In essence, this is the name which applies to an item which is able to be reconstructed to its original quality, despite being damaged or worn out through overuse. This renovation is achieved using the exact same materials and specifications as the original product. 


OEM is used when describing parts that are new, used or refurbished. If you’re unsure of the condition of an item in question, you’ll be able to locate it by looking at the product description. On some occasions, you’ll find third-party items have been used in the construction of the newly refurbished items.


OEM Parts will not carry the original logos or branding as a means of avoiding paying the additional fees of the brand in question. The cost of these particular items will be set in accordance to the price of production, rather than the marketing or values which the brand supports.


Thorough testing is implemented to ensure all product parts are up to scratch, with every individual component thoroughly tested to guarantee it’s fully operational. If they do meet these exacting standards, you’ll find all items supplied as OEM are covered by an extensive warranty. iParts4u is not associated with the device’s manufacturer and, in many cases, will not source the parts directly from them. They’ll also not be involved with the testing or sale of the item in question.




High Quality Parts


In the case of high quality parts, you’ll find these have been assembled and manufactured via a third party. They’ll be constructed from partially or entirely aftermarket elements, meaning they’re not produced by an OEM licensed factory. As well as this, they’ll be made compatible and of a similar spec to the part they’re replacing.


iParts4u offer the same warranty on high quality parts as we do on our OEM parts. We understand how important it is for our customers to have peace of mind, and this extensive warranty guarantees that.


What’s more, thorough testing of all parts in question – all carried out at our in-house testing facilities – ensures all products are in elite condition before we make them available to our loyal shoppers. Any items we find below standard won’t be made available for public use.


As a business who work with manufacturers to help develop and improve products on a routine basis, we’re keen to only allow the highest quality parts to become available in our online storeroom.
