The iOpener is an insulated, heat-retaining bag that can be heated in a microwave and used to transfer heat to the adhesive along the edge of an iPad or similar device.

A heating pad or a heat gun. :)

Very, very, very careful use of a heat gun at that!

Yea, always use it on low.

I know this is a bit late ;>)...

If you are a shop and will be doing iPad repairs on a regular basis, then a heated mat station like this is the preferred solution.

However, if this is for a one-off, the these "Magic Bags" work really well. This one is large enough to cover an entire iPad making it perfect for a digitizer replacement and you can use it at home when you have sore muscles.
