Is it Time to Replace Your iPad?

There is no doubt that one of the most popular mobile tech devices on the market is the iPad. It is hard to believe that this iconic device was only introduced in 2010 and quickly became a staple for work, entertainment and communication. As popular as they are, they are still expensive to replace when components begin to wear out. If you have an iPad that has damage or component failure, you may be wondering if it is time to replace your device. But there is another option: repair.

There are times when it is more economical to replace an electronic device than seek a repair. Television, DVD player and stereo repair has become almost obsolete; it can often be just as expensive to repair a device than replace it. However, the popularity of mobile devices has created a new industry of affordable repair options.

Some common issues with iPads can be quickly and affordably repaired at local mobile device repair stores. Some even offer mobile repair, coming to you to repair your iPad or mobile device. Issues with your iPad that may be worth repairing include:

  • Cracked display glass
  • LCD issues
  • Battery problems
  • Water damage
  • Touchscreen issues

Before you spend a few hundred dollars on a new iPad, consider bringing it to your local mobile device repair shop for a repair estimate. An inexpensive repair may rejuvenate your old iPad, extending its life for months or even years. If the repair is more than what you want to spend, many of these repair shops also will offer to buy your old iPad, giving you some cash to put toward your new iPad. It is a win-win, either way.

iPad Repair

It seems that almost everyone has some type of electronic device that can do more than was ever dreamed possible just twenty years ago. iPads are a popular choice for electronic devices, but they are not cheap by any means. Without a special type of case or protector, an iPad can be damaged very easily. From a fall off of a table, stepping on the screen during the middle of the night, to an excited two year old repeatedly pushing the “home” button — there are a variety of repairs that can be needed for the iPad. 

The most common iPad repair is a cracked or shattered glass replacement. Dropping an iPad on a hard surface, such as concrete, can crack or shatter the glass almost instantly. While there are any number of tutorial videos on how to replace the iPad glass via “do it yourself” methods, experts agree that this is a repair best left to the experts. Professional companies can offer a glass replacement in under thirty minutes, and their replacements typically come with guaranteed service — something YouTube cannot offer its viewers. 

The LCD screen inside the iPad is the most complicated component of the iPad. It controls the touch screen capabilities, which control almost everything else. Only professionally certified technicians should be trusted to make a repair on the iPad screen. Minute adjustments can make or break the functions of the iPad. Because the iPad is a pricey investment, one wrong adjustment can ruin its capabilities. 

Trusting the professionals for any of your iPad repair needs is highly advisable. Apple does not cover faulty repair services from anyone other than one of their technicians, so choose wisely when searching for a company to trust with your iPad repair.

Don’t Throw Away Your iPhone, iPad or iPod!

Most families have some type of “i” device, from iPods to iPhones. These devices have become a large part of our lives, and are continuously changing and upgrading to the next level of technology. As new models come available, the old model with a cracked screen or which just isn’t as cool as the newer version often gets thrown into a drawer and never used again. Even though it’s used and an older model, that device may still be valuable to someone else. Do not throw that old device away; instead get it repaired or even it sell it for cash. 

What to Do With Your Old “i” Devices

With the expanse of these products, another industry has evolved to fix, buy and sell the old models as they are replaced. Instead of throwing away your devices, you can have them repaired or sell them to be refurbished so someone else can enjoy them. Consider these options: 

  • Broken devices. You can have iPad, iPod, or iPhone repaired and keep it as a backup, give it to a friend or family member or even donate it to charity. There are even do-it-yourself repair kits for simple fixes, such as missing screws.
     
  • Get cash. Whether your iPhone, iPad, or iPod is damaged or in good condition, you can sell it for money. Companies that repair these models often offer a decent price to buy your old devices, even ones that do not work. 

The great thing about either repairing or even selling your older device is that instead of ending up cluttering up your home or in a garbage can, the device can still be used and enjoyed.
