If you have an iPad with a cracked screen, you can get this repaired instead of buying a new iPad—which can save you a lot of money. Below is information on how a cracked iPad screen is repaired. You will also find information on how to protect your screen from getting damaged in the future.
Repairing a Cracked iPad Screen
The first thing you should do is determine if your iPad is still under warranty. If it is, you should contact Apple to have the screen repaired. In most cases, they will have you take the iPad to a store near you or may have you mail it to them.
If your iPad is older, there are many shops that can repair the screen for you. If you have the knowledge, you can also repair the screen yourself. There are DIY repair kits.
The shop will not actually repair the screen but replace it with a new one. When they are finished the screen is cleaned and will look brand new for you. In most cases, you will find these third parties charge much less for iPad screen repair compared to what Apple will charge you if your iPad is not under warranty.
iPad Screen Protection
There are many things you can do in the future to protect your iPad screen from getting damaged again. First, there are screen protectors that lay directly onto the screen. You can purchase these screen protectors online or in some electronic stores.
The protector will come with complete instructions. Basically, you first clean the screen and make sure there is no dust on it. The new screen is laid over the screen gently making sure it lines up perfectly and there are no bubbles. Some stores will install the screen for you if you ask them. If you drop your iPad, oftentimes the screen protector may crack but your iPad screen will not.
There are also iPad cases that you can purchase that cover your iPad screen. These cases close when you are not using your iPad and easily open when you are. They fold back or some cases can even act as a stand. You can find these cases online or in electronic stores.
Visit a local iPad screen repair store to get your screen repaired as soon as it is damaged. If you do not, the damage can only become much worse, and you may have to replace the iPad.
