IMPORTANT APPLE © INFORMATION

Note: Apple © Now Offers Genuine Parts and Tools to Independent Repair Shops BUT … shops cannot show Apple Logo, the costs are still too high and very few small independent shops have actually signed up to that. All this so Apple can keep their hands in your pockets and another way to enter the Independent shop privacy too!

Notes
From iPad Air 2 [not iPad Air] Apple started to glue glass onto LCD, therefore if you break the glass, the whole glass + digitiser + LCD must be replaced.
Keep your iPad Air or older models, as MOST people do not really need to upgrade to new model – save your money – same from iPad mini 4 glass is glued onto LCD!

How we repair it – general guidance:

1. glass de-glued
2. LCD protected
3. we test new glass+digitiser
4. we clean iPad from ‘any’ glass debris
5. we check/bend aluminium edges if needed – unless too damaged!
6. we prepare it for ‘proper’ gluing
7. we press it for a certain time
8. we re-test it
9. Done

Note: proper gluing is meant to be done ‘properly’ and should not UN-glue itself!

We only had one glass that unglued itself after repair (we do not hide!) and the reason was because the owner tried to do it himself and damaged the aluminium edges + walked on it and this aluminium is not of the strongest type, it is very malleable.
It is easy to scrape under the microscope – we have seen it with high granularity – i.e. it bends!

Therefore it will not be any more level and glass might UN-glue or even shatter – if aluminium base is bent too much!

We did re-glue it for this customer free of charge.

So, DO NOT leave it on the floor or near radiators!

Ideally we would prefer to keep it overnight under pressure – for better gluing, but it seems these days we want a proper job done in half the time!

NEW!
Kids have small fingers and might press the HOME button in, in the long run!
HOME button is meant to be use by ‘larger’ fingers (adults) or light touch – Apple did not state that in their user manual – I wonder why!

ALL REPAIRS Pricing listed on this page, assume everything else works!
ALL repairs that require connector replacement are not guaranteed
It will depend on the state of the PCB!

Glass + Digitiser Units from iPad 1 to iPad Air are mostly in stock (Black or White) – therefore repairs can be done fast enough if there are no other problems

Please also note: we do not replace or repair iPads from iPad Air 2, due to the fact they have their LCD ‘glued’ onto the Glass + Digitiser unit

i.e. best to keep iPad older than the iPad Air 2 and avoid exorbitant bills or even have the LCD ruined by ‘heat’ during attempt to UN-glue the broken glass from LCD !

This page may not be updated quickly enough, we encourage you to enquire.

If by any chance after preliminary examination the repair may take longer and/or parts are more expensive than usual,
and / or someone already attempted a failed repair, we may have to revise the device repair cost for the Laptop Tablet based on what we found and how much longer it would take to do it professionally.
