Before we start, make sure you have the following tools ready:

Pentalobe screwdriver (size P2)
Spudger tool
Plastic opening tool
iOpener (optional)
Heat gun (optional)
New battery
Adhesive strips (optional)

Step 1: Prepare the iPad

Make sure your iPad is turned off and unplugged from any power source. Use the Pentalobe screwdriver to remove the two screws at the bottom of the iPad.

Step 2: Remove the screen

To remove the screen, you need to heat the adhesive around the edges of the iPad. You can do this by using an iOpener or a heat gun. If you’re using an iOpener, heat it in the microwave for 30 seconds, then place it on the bottom edge of the iPad for 90 seconds.

Once the adhesive is heated, use a plastic opening tool to gently pry the screen away from the body of the iPad. Work your way around the edges of the iPad, being careful not to bend the screen too much or damage any cables.

Step 3: Disconnect the battery

Once the screen is removed, you can see the battery in the middle of the iPad. Use the spudger tool to disconnect the battery connector from the logic board. Be careful not to damage any other cables or components.

Step 4: Remove the battery

The battery is held in place with adhesive strips. You can either use the adhesive strips that come with your new battery, or you can use a plastic card to gently pry the battery away from the body of the iPad.

If you’re using adhesive strips, attach them to the edges of the battery and gently pull them away from the body of the iPad. If you’re using a plastic card, slide it between the battery and the body of the iPad and gently pry the battery away.

Step 5: Install the new battery

Once the old battery is removed, you can install the new one. Make sure it’s lined up correctly and gently press it into place. If you’re using adhesive strips, make sure they’re attached to the edges of the new battery.

Step 6: Reconnect the battery

Reconnect the battery connector to the logic board using the spudger tool. Make sure it’s firmly in place.

Step 7: Reattach the screen

Carefully align the screen with the body of the iPad and gently press it into place. If you’re using adhesive strips, make sure they’re attached to the edges of the screen.

Step 8: Test the iPad

Turn on the iPad and make sure everything is working properly. If it is, you’re done! If not, double-check your work and make sure everything is connected properly.

Replacing a battery in an iPad Pro 12.9 1st generation is definitely not an easy job, but with the right tools and a little patience, it’s definitely doable. Just be careful not to damage any cables or components, and take your time to ensure everything is done correctly. Good luck!
