I think the iPad Mini digitizer replacement guide needs to be changed

For example in step 58 of this guide:

https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/iPad+Mini+W...

I think we should recommend prying from the short end rather than the long end because this reduces the risk of pulling the pins / damaging the digitizer connector.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Seconded, this seems to be more logical. Did you try to edit it?

Seems like a decent suggestion! I updated the text on that guide accordingly. The photo set will stay as-is for now—this is a pretty old device and there’s no convenient way for us to shoot new images.

I’ve never broken one of these sockets, so I’m honestly not sure how critical this is. On the relatively small number of internal Apple service manuals that I’ve seen, they never specified which edge of the connector to attack. Often, but not always, they show their techs prying up at the corners rather than along the edge.
