Touch ID Button Replacement
Dropped my iPad Air 4the Gen square on the Touch ID button and it will not recognize fingerprints any longer. Not finding a replacement part for this item. How can I get this fixed?
Touch ID is one of the hardest things to restore. I am not sure about iPads but there are programming tools such as the JCID that can copy the codes that pair your button to the logic board, then write them to a new home button. This should do the trick in getting a replacement home button’s full functionality back.
Most components in apple products are paired with the logic board and either stop working or disable features after the pair component is changed. Again there are programming tools, I use the JC V1S myself on iPhone repairs, but I have not looked into iPad programmers.
Hope this helps :)
Unfortunately Touch ID is paired to the iPad Air like with most apple devices unfortunately even if you were to replace Touch ID button yourself it still wouldn’t work because it wouldn’t be paired the only way to do this is with special tools only apple authorized repair centers have
I'm having the same problem, did you find a solution? My battery is draining so fast because of my cracked touch id button.
would swapping the tiny chips from one touch id (broken) to second hand one ??
