We have talked about this before but here we go again. We get many emails from people asking if they can replace just the touch panel aka digitizer on the iPhone 4/4S. The simple answer is no and to prove it take a look at this video we found on Youtube that shows you what happens. It is plain an simple the Touch Panel and LCD are fused together at the factory and they can not be replaced independently of each other. We carry the complete replacement screen for the iPhone 4/4S at DirectFix.com.
This is the iPhone 4/4S Complete Screen Replacement and the Correct Part.
DirectFix.com just uploaded to YouTube free video directions on how to teardown and replace the screen on an iPhone 4. This video can be used for directions on replacing the complete screen assembly. These are comprehensive step by step directions on how to take it apart the Apple iPhone 4. We detail all the tools needed along with each step in the process to tear the iPhone down for repair. The iPhone 4 screen is similar to the iPhone 2G because when the LCD or Touch Panel breaks you will need to replace the complete screen assembly. Unlike the iPhone 3G and 3GS which had the option to replace just the touch panel or just the lcd the iPhone 4 LCD and Touch Panel are glued together as one screen assembly.
