iPhone XR Screen and Sensor Replacement

For this fix I was tasked with replacing a broken screen and sensor on an iPhone XR. The screen was very unresponsive, and had cracks around the edge.

After taking the screen off I attempted to transfer the original sensor from the old screen onto the new one. However, in attempting to pry off part of the ribbon I snapped it. I suspect the ribbon was somewhat fragile as I’ve done lots of these repairs before and had no issues.

I ordered a new sensor. and a few days later it arrived and I completed the #repair. With the new screen in place all functionality in the touchscreen returned.
