Why can't you buy a 6s digitizer without the LCD?
Hello. I'm new to repairing phones, so this may be a silly question, but why is it so difficult to buy the iPhone 6s digitizer without the LCD?
I've replaced a broken screen on an old iPhone 3GS, and the replacement digitizer I bought didn't have the LCD attached, I had to transfer it from the old display.
I would imagine that a digitizer without an LCD would be substantially cheaper than one with the LCD, so why can't I find any? Is it impossible to remove the LCD in the 6s? Is there a time period after a new iPhone is released in which you can't buy the digitizer separately? Or is there some other reason?
Thanks in advance.
