We helped out a local repair company this evening by repairing the home button on an iPad Air 2018. There was a tiny tear in the original cable caused by stray glass shards from the smashed glass screen.
Touch ID sensors are paired to the logic board for security reasons and it’s not possible to pair a new sensor without paying top dollar and taking your iPad to the Apple store.
However as this is just a torn cable, we were able to remove the finger print sensor from its cable assembly and solder it onto a new one.
The repair was carried out under a 80x zoom stereoscope with a nano soldering iron.
