Will this mean glass cannot be replaced?
So from Apple's video it says that the glass is now laminated to the display- does this mean that glass won't be replaceable?
We'll know for sure once we take one apart, but for now it looks like people will have to replace glass, digitizer, and LCD if they crack the glass.
It could be a big challenge for apple ID engineer
look. i work at the apple store in SoHo. I am a fan but def not a fanboy. But, seriously, of COURSE it cracked after dropping it on the floor. That's luck of the draw. Nobody said it was unbreakable. And, I have had TWO iPhones replaced because of dust under the glass. I am excited, but I will definitely be protecting this thing with case.
Maybe only both together, display and digitizer as a unit.
Like Miroslav says we won't know sure until it is taken apart, but, from this parts supplier, it looks like the glass and digitizer are not bonded directly to the lcd. Furthermore, in the video it did not show the glass being pressed onto the lcd. I'm not really sure what it was showing...machines doing something...but no lcd in sight. We will see.
I have repair parts and digigtizer can be replaced!!!
