So you have your shiny new Apple iPad, playing HD pinball, Where's Wally, and countless other games, and possibly a little work as well. You place the iPad on the table, go to move your laptop, and forget that your iPad is still attached to it, down it goes and now you could be looking at a very expensive iPad cracked screen repairs. The good news is that your 1K or so investment (for the latest version) is likely very fixable.
Types of Damage
Most Apple iPad repairs are the same as the sister iPhone which is damage by user fault i.e. dropped and mis-handled items. This will likely result in the front glass cracking and if you are really unlucky maybe even the LCD as well. Generally the front glass, which includes the digitiser component, can be replaced relatively easy by a professional without too much fuss, we offer same day iPad repairs for this type of damage. The iPad LCD is also another commonly replaced component that can be removed and replaced in about an hour or so.
Like all electronic devices the iPad does not play well with water. Most iPads that have had water damage just need to have their internal connectors checked and cleaned where required, and usually need the LCD replaced. It is a strange coincidence but by speaking to one of our technicians, you will soon learn that the LCD is a commonly needed replacement when your iPad has sustained water damage.
Back Case Buckled
The back iPad casing is quite strong however this can be buckled through miss handling which may also result in a broken glass and LCD as mentioned above. Generally we offer two options when the back casing is buckled, we can replace the entire back casing, an expensive exercise, or attempt to bend the casing back. In the second instance you will usually still see a slight indent or marking where the bend was, but this is usually a much cheaper option. If we are replacing the front glass and the back casing isn't too buckled, we don't charge anything additional to bend it back.
