What is an iPhone digitizer?

I know that there are a ton of question about the “digitizer” on your iPhone, or any other touch-screen smartphone these days. We here at Mission Repair are experts and very familiar with iPhone digitizers, glass, and screens. We repair them by the thousands every month. Let’s see if we can demonstrate what the digitizer is here under a glass panel:

This is the digitizer on an iPhone!

The digitizer is fused UNDER the glass cover. It’s the electronic component that senses the touch of a human finger through the glass, and is designed to allow the unit to be controlled by a fingertip. This is the “input” of the device and it’s very thin and transparent.

The point is that you cannot replace the digitizer alone. Since it’s part of the glass, in the event of a touch failure it needs to be replaced with the glass and vice versa. So if you have a cracked iPhone glass, you’re going to get a new digitizer as well. If you have an iPhone that doesn’t respond to touch, you’ll also get a new glass. It’s just the way it’s designed.

You might see these assemblies marketed as:

  • iPhone glass
  • iPhone digitizer
  • iPhone touch screen
  • iPhone glass screen
  • iPhone screen
  • iPhone touch panel

For all intents and purposes, these terms are all interchangeable and are all the same thing. Are you in need of one of these parts? Here’s a list of glass/digitizer repairs that we sell here at Mission Repair:

Don’t forget our wide selection of iPad Glass Repair options!

Remember, you might see these glass panels for sale cheap – be sure to inquire about the required digitizer that is fused to the glass from the factory – without it, the glass is useless. You cannot replace the glass or “remove” your good digitizer and reinstall it onto your iPhone without advanced equipment and lots of training. It just doesn’t work! These assemblies are built together and must stay together. I hope this information helps!

Technical Difficulties! (Resolved)

Hello everyone –

tech diff

The issues on our blog are resolved! For the past few weeks when visiting our site www.missionrepair.com, the link to the blog, which has been down, is now up and live….wohoo! Strangely enough while my entire staff was unable to view the blog from our office computers, I could view it on my iPhone without issues?!?

Needless to say, when purchasing a business, there are always some challenges in the transition. Well as it turns out, the employee that setup the blog for Mission Repair some 7 or 8 years ago did the common thing and used his name and email when setting everything up. Smooth sailing for years… until I attempted to renew the domain and pay the renewal for the coming year. Ryan of course had paid the service year after year without a hiccup, but now  a new CC and my name caused Word Press to question who the owner is/was. I do not fault them, security is important and not just letting anyone take your blog or website over is very important! The staff at Word Press (the company that hosts the blog) were doing their job to make sure to protect that information of the listed owner yet also help me with the transition to take ownership of the blog. Needless to say after chasing down emails and chat sessions, and proving we were the true owners, Word Press was speedy in their effort to make the updates and get the blog back up and live on the web!

Thank you all for your patience during the past few weeks as we sorted things out. The lesson to reflect upon and one I won’t soon forget….just like backing up your personal data, it’s always important to keep accurate records and review that backup on a regular basis.

Thank you all again for your patience and continued support on the blog, website and of course in our stores!
