The screen of my I pad is cracked

Is there anyway for me to connect my i pad to my screen? I already know my password, but I can't type the password because the screen is cracked.

Nice to meet you, *****!

Customer Replay

Nice to meet you too
By the way, its a super old Ipad.


You can connect your iPad only using an adapter.

Customer Replay

I already connected my laptop and the ipad with a adapter

Do you have Display AV Adapter?

Customer Replay

I have it connected with the charging cable
Does that not work?

In this case, you won't be able to see the iPad screen.

Customer Replay

Can I transfer photos from the Ipad?

Do you have an iTunes app?

Customer Replay

Yes sir.

Do you have a Windows computer?

Please, follow the instructions below:

  1. Turn your phone on and unlock it. Your PC can't find the device if the device is locked.
  2. On your PC, select the Start button and then select Photos to open the Photos app.
  3. Select Import > From a USB device, then follow the instructions.

The screen doesn't work on my ipad though.

I'm sorry, Is there no chance to enter the password?

Customer Replay

The screen does not work at all.
Can you recomend some AV display adapter?
Or is it all the same.

I'll check it.
Can you tell me the model of your iPad?

Customer Replay

Model A1395

Are you using the laptop?

Customer Replay


Don't you have a separate monitor?

Customer Replay

Just the monitor?

Customer Replay

I have one that I use to connect my X box
does that work?

I think so. Does it connect with the HDMI cable?

Customer Replay

How would I connect my mouse?
Oh never mind.

You need Digital AV 30-Pin to HDMI Adapter.
Here's the example: https://amzn.to/3UMOoQG

Customer Replay

What else do I need?

I think only the adapter.
But I'd recommend taking your iPad to repair and change the display.

Customer Replay

I would, but I am just trying to see old memories from my Ipad I don't know if its worth it.

In any case, you'll have a working iPad and your memories.

Customer Replay

Ha, thats true.

Do you have any additional questions I can help you with?

Customer Replay

No, Thanks for helping me today.
