    If you’re gonna open up that thing please keep in mind that you’ll most like lose all water sealing it has.
    But other than that, I don’t see a reason why the screens wouldn’t be interchangeable.

    Good luck and keep us posted.

    Piece of advice: it’s probably cheaper in the long run if you bring it in to an Apple Store and have them fix it.

    Hi. Thanks for replying .. so Okay I took it to a guy who repairs apples for a living and he swapped the screens and everything works perfectly the touch the display is great but the force touch doesn’t work so u cannot press down hard for secondary function..sad!!...So I guess the screens aren’t fully compatible. U have to get the exact model screens fitted..

    Thanks for following up. It’s too bad about the lack of force touch, but at least everything else is working.
