    I am in Egypt, My IPAD 4 screen have been cracked after 19 days :( the Glass only have been cracked "Digitizer only - Touch Screen" and I want to replace it, but it is not available on our stores "in Egypt".

    So I want to know

    1- Where Can buy original Digitizer for the IPad 4?
    2- Can I replace it with the screen of IPad 3 or not?

    would you please help me.

    The ipad 3 digi will fit the ipad 4 my experience it is a little easier to pull ipad 4 screens since the adhesive hasn't set over a long period of time.

    Would can get them on eBay pay like $36 and get a razor blade or order the isesamo (my number 1 tool in the shop)

    Watch out for the wifi cable and the home button has a godd*#n ribbon cable attached that is adhered to the glass :mad: which just makes it that much harder

    Pm if you need help worst case I could dhl one from phoenix az to you
