The word “digitizer” is used a lot when it comes to iPhones and iPhone repairs but what exactly is it? It wasn’t until I started working at Mission:Repair that I finally asked this question. Our technicians are all too familiar with iPhone screens, glass and digitizers. They repair thousands of them every month, so who better to provide the answer?
The digitizer is the electronic component that senses the touch of your finger through the glass. It is designed to allow the device to be controlled by a finger tip and is fused under the glass.
The digitizer is part of the glass, therefore you cannot replace it alone. If your screen is not responding to touch, the glass AND digitizer need to be replaced. So, if you get a news glass put on your device, you will also be getting a new digitizer. It’s just the way it’s designed.
