Apples products are not the cheapest in the tech industry. Thus, if you happen to crack your iPad’s screen, be ready to spend a little fortune to get it repaired. There are many technicians who specialize in iPad repair so find one won’t be any problem. Breaking your screen will require you to spend money to get it repaire because the one-year warranty that Apple provides doesn’t extend to accidental damage. Apple will only accept to cover the cost of repairs or replacement of your iPad if damage is as a result of some mechanical damage.
In this article, I will be looking at the three options you have if you happen to get your iPad’s screen broken and need to have it replaced. Read on to find out.
Have Apple fix it
The first option you have to have your screen replaced is to contact Apple and have them do the replacement. contrary to popular belief, having Apple do the replacement is pretty cheap and straightforward process. you can buy AppleCare at the time you buy your device so that you can have your screen replaced for a service fee of 49 dollars only for a period of two years from the time of purchase. AppleCare costs 99 dollar, and it covers two incidents of accidental damage. Without AppleCare, be prepared to spend the cost of buying a refurbished iPad just to get your screen fixed. A broken screen costs somewhere between 199 and 599 to fix depending on the model of the iPad. You can walk into any Apple store and have the replacement done. If you can access an Apple store where you live, you can mail your device and pay the shipping fee.
Have a third party fix it
Apple is not the only solution for your iPad’s broken screen. There are also several third party technicians and companies that provide iPad repair services that you can contact to have your iPad fixed within no time. however, you should know that working with a non-Apple repair shop carries some risk, the main one being that it nullifies the warranty that Apple provides on its products. And don’t think for a minute that you can take your iPad to a non-Apple store and Apple won’t know about it because they will. They have a way of knowing a device that has been opened by a non-Apple employee.
However, if your warranty has already run out, then there is no problem having a third party look into your iPad if it has a problem.
The last option is to open up your iPad and have a look inside yourself. This is the last option if you can’t afford to pay the price required by Apple repair stores and third party stores and if you have the skills to replace your screen. This option is only reserved for people who have the necessary technical expertise to replace an iPad’s screen. If you know nothing about replacing iPad screen, you should not attempt to make the repairs on your own. Instead, you should take it to a repair shop.
