Your repair is treated with the same quality and care as any other manufacturer will provide for you. Here is a summary of the process we follow when replacing an iPad screen.

  2. We loosen and separate the screen from the back casing of the iPad.
  3. The next step is that we remove the screen, making sure to safely disconnect any connective wiring between the screen and the circuit board.
  4. We assess the internal workings to see if there are any other issues that can contribute to your screen being faulty.
  5. After this, we carefully attach the replacement screen and all the relevant connections on the circuit board.
  6. We test the screen to see if it works before fully reattaching.
  7. Once we know the screen is working, we securely reattach the iPad screen to its backing.

If there are any further damages that we find during our process that needs repair, we will get in contact with you. Of course, additional work will contribute to a higher repair cost.

Does Apple charge for repairs?

If you are beyond your manufacturer warranty, or the issue is caused by something not covered by your warranty, then yes, you will be charged for a repair. According to Apple’s website, a repair for a iPad 7th generation that isn’t a battery issue, costs an estimated £279. This price can either increase or decrease after they have obtained the specific details they require from you.

Apple does have an additional support plan for your Apple devices, called AppleCare+ which greatly subsidises the cost of phone repairs and gives you access to more support services. For this particular model of iPad, the cost of repair with an AppleCare+ plan is an estimated £39.

Services include 24-hour priority calling, however, you still have to pay a monthly fee of £9.99, this might not be worth it for some, along with a cheaper price to repair the fault at hand.

  1. Inspection: Trained technicians rigorously inspect the device to identify any issues or defects. They examine both the exterior and interior components, paying close attention to the screen, buttons, battery, and connectivity.
  2. Cleaning: The iPad is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized, removing any dirt, dust, or cosmetic imperfections. This step also involves cleaning the ports and ensuring the device looks pristine.
  3. Repairs and Replacements: Any components that fail to meet Apple’s standards are repaired or replaced with genuine Apple parts. This includes replacing batteries, screens, buttons, or any other malfunctioning parts.
  4. Software Update: The iPad’s operating system is updated to the latest version to ensure optimal performance and security. This step also ensures compatibility with the latest apps and features.
  5. Quality Testing: The refurbished iPad undergoes a battery of quality tests to ensure it functions flawlessly. This includes tests for hardware performance, touchscreen responsiveness, camera functionality, and more.
  6. Certification: Once the device successfully passes all tests and inspections, it is certified as refurbished by Apple.
