There ARE options for broken iPads – fret not!
Buying an expensive device can be a difficult decision, because you don’t necessarily want to spend the money, but you want the convenience and luxury that it offers. So when you make the decision to actually follow through, the last thing that you want is for it to become damaged in any way. Alas, these things happen. If you have a broken iPad, whether it’s the Air, iPad with Retina Display, Mini or any other version, know that you have options. You do not have to sell it on Craigslist for “peanuts.” You don’t have to get rid of it at all. You likely have a ton of information and images saved on it, and you’d like to keep it. So do a quick online search for a local iPad repair shop – surely you will find something!
From broken screens to missing buttons, an iPad repair shop should offer all sorts of options for you that are budget-friendly. Often times, the people who work at these places are professional and work with quality parts, but it’s always a good idea to ask about whether they use OEM quality replacement parts, or if they reuse old ones. You can do a search on a site such as Yelp to get some feedback from previous customers and get an idea of the shop’s work ethic. This is merely one option you have – you can always go back to your provider, and depending on the damage, they might fix it right there for you or order the new parts for free.
Don’t continue to use an iPad Air with a cracked screen. Bring the device into a local third party repair shop and see what they are willing to do for you. Models that repair shops work on generally include the iPad Air 2 (A1566, A1567), iPad Mini 3 (A1599, A1600), iPad Air (A1474, A1475), iPad 4 (A1458, A1459) and so many more.
