Recently, iFixit rated 2 points for iPad Mini 3 on the difficulty of dismantling, which means repair is very difficult. First, although the battery is not welded to the logic board and LCD and front panel glass fused together, so dismantling easier. But the fusion of the glass panel increases the cost of repairing the damaged screen and also increases the risk of dismantling LCD damage. So the smart choice is to buy an iPad mini 3 screen replacements from online. The cost will be much cheaper while the risk is lower compared to DIY dismantling.
