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 Mini Screen Replacement

Dropping an iPad Mini on the way out of the door or while running late to a meeting can be a headache for anyone. But dropping an iPad Mini and cracking the screen can seem like a complete disaster. When lines appear across the screen or blurred spots appear, or if the dreaded completely black screen simply won’t “do anything” – it’s time to call in the experts. Having the screen replaced on an iPad Mini is a relatively easy fix, but it is one best left to the professionals. 

There are many do it yourself videos on YouTube offering people guidance on how to make an iPad Mini screen replacement. While these tutorials may be informative and helpful to some, they do not offer what a qualified, licensed, and professional repair company can: guaranteed service. Not only are the parts and services typically guaranteed from a quality repair source, but should anything go wrong during the repair to other functions of the iPad Mini, they would also be covered. A DIY approach to an iPad Mini screen replacement may seem as though it will save money at the beginning, but damaging or messing up other functions of the iPad Mini can actually cost much more than a professional screen replacement. 

Most repair services offer iPad Mini screen replacements done daily and within a short time frame. It is understandable that most people who need their iPad Minis for work or a highly social schedule will be at a loss without their device. If you are in need of a professional iPad Mini screen replacement, do your research and find the repair service with the most reputable qualifications.

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.

iPad Screen Replacement

iPads are amazing devices that allow access to the Internet, email, video, music and tens of thousands of entertainment, lifestyle and productivity applications or “apps”.  In addition, they have a video and a still camera that take pretty good pictures.  If you are a apple user they can be easily synchronized with your other Apple products.  In many cases iPads have replaced the computer, because of their capabilities and portability.  While generally very durable, the screen on the iPad can be easily damaged, especially if the optional cover is not used.

In the past a broken screen on a iPad was a disaster, with the only alternative being to replace the device.  This was especially painful as the prices on the iPad can be over $1,000, depending on the model.  Now it is possible to replace the front glass and LCD and touch-screen on the iPad 1, iPad 2, iPad 3 and the iPad mini with the iPad screen replacement being made by certified technicians, who have the specialized training, equipment and parts necessary to repair iPads.

In many cases it is possible to have the iPad repair done in the same day by stopping by one of the many repair facilities.   Alternatively, the repair company can send a certified technician to the customer’s home or business to repair the device on the spot.  The first step to take if faced with a damaged iPad screen is to either call or email a certified technician to discuss the damage and plan the next step in getting the device back up and running.  While the repaired device comes with a warranty on the repair, the owner may want to consider one of those bright covers for their iPad in the future!
