Help! My iPad Doesn’t Hold a Charge

Posted in iPhone Repairs

When protected and maintained, an iPad can last for many years, but that is not necessarily true of the battery. Like all batteries, the iPad’s battery eventually holds less and less of a charge. If you have an iPad that barely holds a charge and needs to be plugged in to use, it is no longer living up to the mobility function that makes this device so popular. Here is what you should do if your iPad battery has lost its charging capacity.

Head to an iPad Repair Shop

The first thing to do is to find out for sure it is the battery causing the issue. Sometimes the port where you connect the charger is no longer supplying the electricity needed or there is some other issue. Many quality iPad repair shops will perform a free diagnostic on your iPad to determine what is wrong. If it is the battery, many of these shops can replace it for you.

What Does It Cost to Replace the Battery?

Cost on replacement batteries depends on the model and year of iPad you have but expect to pay more than just a few bucks. If you have an older iPad, you may want to consider your options. You may spend the money to replace the battery on your old iPad and then have something else go wrong. Some iPad repair shops will buy your device for cash, even with a bad battery, giving you money to put towards a new device instead of investing more into an obsolete model.

While it is possible to replace an iPad battery yourself, it is not always easy, and you could damage your device. It is best to bring it to a repair shop and find out your options.

Do’s and Don’ts for iPad Owners

Are you a proud owner of an iPad? This popular device has found its way into millions of households and is loved by the young and old alike. However, it is an expensive item and can be damaged easily. Most people realize it can be cracked or scratched from impact or pressure, which is why a case or cover is recommended. But there are other ways to damage your iPad that you may not realize. Here are some Do’s and Don’ts to ensure your iPad has a long, productive life.


  • Clean the screen. The iPad screen has a protective coating that can be damaged if not kept clean. Wipe it clean after use with a slightly damp, soft cloth to remove oils and dirt.
  • Download new updates. Apple updates for your iPad should be downloaded – these updates can improve the performance of your iPad, even saving on battery life.
  • Allow your iPad to use all of its battery once a month. Draining the battery completely down and recharging it to 100% can help improve the life of your battery. Do this once per month.


  • Don’t use chemicals. Never use window cleaner or other chemicals to clean the screen. This could harm your iPad.
  • Never dry with a heat source. If your iPad gets wet, don’t use a hair dryer or external heat source to dry. Dab it dry and let it air dry. Heat can damage the components.
  • Don’t try to repair your iPad. If you have a cracked screen or other issue, don’t try to fix it yourself. Bring it to a professional iPad repair store.

Following these few tips can help you protect your iPad and get the most out of this incredible device.
