Recommended Tools:

Nylon Spudger
Fine Tip Curved Tweezers
Precision Knife Set
2mm Red Adhesive
Multi-Purpose Heat Gun
Professional Phillips Screwdriver

Step 1 

Power down your 10.5-inch iPad Pro tablet.
 
Step 2 (iPad Pro 10.5 Display Assembly)
 
The fully laminated 10.5-inch iPad Pro Oxide TFT “True Tone” display assembly is glued on solidly and is a tight fit within the rear case. Apply heat to soften the adhesive.
 
Use the precision knife to create enough space to insert a triangle opening tool.
 
Use triangle opening tools to slice thru the strong adhesive and carefully decouple the iPad Pro screen. Don't try to fully separate the display yet, as several fragile ribbon cables still connect it to the iPad’s logic board.
 
Remove the following 2 Phillips screws securing the bracket that covers the display’s cables.
 
With the bracket out of the way, detach the cables from the logic board and free the 10.5-inch iPad Pro display assembly.
 
Step 3 (iPad Pro 10.5 Home Button and Touch ID Assembly)
 
Peel up the piece of black tape.
 
Release the ZIF connector and carefully slide out the home button assembly cable.
 
The bracket that secures the iPad Pro home button and touch ID is held in place with two gobs of adhesive. Use the spudger to pry it up from the front panel.
 
Remove the 10.5-inch iPad Pro home button and touch ID assembly.
