Apple's October 2020 refresh of its iPad Air tablet, sporting an A14 Bionic processor, a 10.9" screen, a new design, and in-button TouchID.

Broke Touch ID, how to disable it functionally?

I dropped a new iPad Air 4. I broke Touch ID, I don't need it, but the power button began to warm up excessively, turned off Touch ID completely, but still the button warms up. I note that the power button warms up only if you turn off the screen, that is, lock the screen, if the screen is on, it does not warm up, and as soon as I turn off the screen, it starts, and the battery also eats! Is it possible to completely functionally disable Touch ID, or is it possible to physically disable it, but to make the power button work?

I haven't solved the problem in any way, but I'm thinking of opening it and physically disconnecting it from the board, I don't know if it will help or not

Hi! I’m having exactly the same issue, have any of you worked it out ? I really don’t want to pay 450 bucks at my Apple Store :/

Well, IPAD Air 5 is my first apple device after ipod touch 4.

In which i was able to change battery and display

And now i have broken IRREPLACEABLE BUTTON WHICH HEATS UP AND DRAINS MY BATTERY?

It was like such a lite hit…

I suppose apple fan will say I should buy pro version with face id.

Same issue for me,

I took scissors and completely destroyed the button, so now it's not working but not draining my battery either.

I'm very happy with this solution

I'll consider this solution if I will not throw this tablet to the wall and buy something more repairable))

It's such a disappointment - I love the design, functionality and apple pencil

But boy oh boy I hate this button now

I was really frustrated, I turned my Ipad between using it, and hated it.

Once it's no longer heating and draining I really don't care for the button...
