Apple iPad Repair Updates for 2017

iPad Repair Suggestions for 2017

So here we find ourselves well into 2017, and many folks are living with broken iPad screens.  Choosing the best repair vendor for your needs depends an several factors.  Are you looking for an individual iPad Repair, or something for an organization like some that might need school district iPad Repair services.  Other factors have a lot to do with where you are located, and what local options in iPad Repair and iPhone repair are available to you.

Current Apple Product Line for iPhones and iPads

The biggest news in Apple-land is the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, released at the end of 2017.  These iPhone models are selling well, and breaking easily too.  Gone are the rumors of sapphire “unbreakable iPhone screens” and we still have a highly delicate iPhone screen that can break easily.  The new feature around water-reistance on the iPhone 7 has finally come to fruition.  However, the screens still break easily, and can be repaired with very low expense.  We have seen many companies start offering iPhone 7 Screen repair and it is only early January 2017.  Prices are in the low $100 range already for independent iPhone Screen Repairs.

The iPad world is a bit simpler in 2017.  Apple is offering just 2 versions of the iPad Mini, and 3 versions of the iPad Pro.  Once legacy holdover is the iPad Air 2, which is still available as of early 2017, but perhaps will not still be on the market at the end of the year.  Major new features in the iPad Pro include better audio features, and improved wireless technologies.  Also incorporated is the Apple Pencil, an exciting new feature that artists and developers are already finding new uses for.

Whichever types of Apple mobile iOS devices you use, rest assured that repair services for iPhones and iPads are getting less expensive and easier across the board.  AppleCare is still a popular options for many users… and independent repair solutions are also still quite popular.  Look for companies with many years of repair experience and look for companies like RepairZoom in the USA and iCorrect in the UK for the best in repair options.

 

Apple rumored to add more Sapphire Glass to their iPad and iPhone products soon

Apple has made a big new technology bet.  Well, it is better described as a new bet to use something very old – as part of something very new.  What the heck?  The idea is to take sapphire (yep, the same sapphire found in jewelry – see below image) and use it to make iPhones and iPad glass stronger.

iPad Sapphire

Sapphire for iPhone or iPad

You may have never heard of an Arizona based company called GT Advanced Technologies, but in future Apple devices, the firm could end up playing a pivotal role.

The company, which has expertise in sapphire technology and “crystal grow” materials for consumer electronics recently confirmed, along with Apple, that it is collaborating with Apple to provide sapphire materials.  This includes accepting a large investment from Apple to acquire a new facility, equipment, and operating capital all exceeding $500 Million.  It could actually be much more.

Sapphire has started to show up in all kinds of newer Apple products.  The “Touch ID” fingerprint reading technology in the iPhone 5S uses a cut sapphire crystal cover.  And even earlier, the iPhone 5 camera utilized a sapphire crystal lens.

But the future could be even more exciting for the beautiful blue stone.  Speculation is rampant that Apple will begin to use the scratch resilient material in future touch-screens in iPads and iPhones.  This would presumably replace Gorilla Glass from Corning.  And it could debut the new screens as soon as the future iPhone 6 – expected by many to be released in 2014.  If successful, Apple might further extend the use of sapphire to its other product lines, including the next iPad.

My iPad Air Was Thrown Out of My Car!

After my 2-year old daughter threw my iPad out of our car window, which was on the freeway, I was not happy.  The device was shattered.  I gave it to her playing her favorite nursery rhymes on the iPad when she, all of a sudden, threw it out of the window. Obviously, she was not aware of the consequences when she did it.

After my daughter broke the iPad, I was upset for a while, but came back to my senses soon after I spun around to pick up my new iPad Air off the freeway.  I literally reached out of the car door and grabbed the iPad which was lying face down on the pavement.

Needless to say, the screen and the digitizer were destroyed.  Even the LCD sitting under the screen and digitizer was full of weird wavy lines.  It was actually worse than I expected.  I was very sad to see the condition of my new iPad Air, and I considered just throwing it away, at first.

I went back home disappointed and my wife told me not to worry. She said that I should get it repaired even though it is so badly damaged. I felt that it is totally useless as whole of the iPad screen is damaged and possibly some internal parts might have been damaged too. However, my wife still insisted on getting it repaired and so I searched some service centers in a local directory. I visited one of the service centers and asked a lot of questions.

Can you repair the iPad?” The guy at the service center looked at my face and said, “Of course, we can.”

Before I handed over my device for an iPad Air Screen Repair at the service center, I was worried and actually apprehensive about getting it further damaged by them if they are not experts in iPad repair.  However, I finally handed over my iPad to the technician after he assured me of the quality of his company.  I was convinced they were experienced certified experts in iPad screen repair.  He told me how he has helped restore many iPads that have been badly broken in even worse condition than mine!  He also said that I should not be worried about my iPad anymore as they will be fixing iPad glass and make it look as good as before.

He was right. After I got my iPad back I couldn’t believe that it is the same old iPad that had been tossed out the window by my precocious daughter!  Now we just have a fun story tell friends and family about how our iPad Air was badly damaged – and fixed!
