The iPad 6th Generation

The iPad 6th Generation is a tablet released by Apple in 2018. Despite being 5 years old, these devices are still in use, though they are close to being labelled as a ‘vintage’ device from Apple. This partly means that repairs could end up costing more, simply because the device is not in production after a certain point. Here is a full list of the specifications of the iPad 6th Generation.

Can I still use my iPad even if it has a crack on the screen?

In some case, you can still use your iPad if the crack on the screen hasn’t created significant issues such as a dead screen. However, continuing to use the device without repair presents a significant risk.

Please be aware that even though some smaller cracks present no side effects in your iPad’s performance, it has the potential to spread, and affect the device. The crack itself is the most susceptible part of the screen, so further damages, even if it was not as bad as what caused the crack, can significantly damage the screen further.

How much to repair iPad 6th Gen screen

Unfortunately, repairing a screen isn’t possible, as the intricate cracks and depths of damage that can appear with glass can leave the rest of the screen compromised to further damage. This is why a full screen replacement is conducted, regardless of whom you go to. With imFixed, the cost to replace the screen of an iPad 6th Gen is £85. This affordable and fair price reflects value for money despite the extensive service we supply. Here is a brief summary of the process we undertake when replacing your iPad screen.
  1. We assess the severity of the damage on the screen, and check to see if there are cracks on the body of the iPad.
  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.

How much does Apple charge to repair a 6th Generation iPad?

According to Apple’s website, a repair for a iPad 6th 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.

Can I repair a iPad 6th Generation screen myself?

Yes, it is possible to repair an iPad 6th Generation yourself, as long as you have access to the equipment necessary, along with the parts and knowledge on how to conduct the repair. If you don’t have the equipment or parts on hand, buying them can run up the costs you spend.

In addition, if your repair is unsuccessful, and you end up causing further damages, you may make the iPad irreparable. This is why it is especially important to use the services of an expert, especially if you have precious or sensitive information that you need to retrieve.

Is there a way to prevent damage to the iPad entirely?

Unfortunately, no. Buying a case and screen protector provides the protection you need should there be any accidents. However, the only other way to reduce the likelihood of the iPad being damaged is based on your usage. Using your iPad whilst seated, in a carpeted room, in addition to equipping the casing and screen protector is the way to limit the likelihood of damage through usage.

Being seated reduces the height of the fall, should it be dropped. And carpet is soft, so would be unlikely to cause any damages if it is dropped from a small height onto it.

Can you protect an iPad screen?

Yes. Regardless of the generation of iPad you have, protecting the device, specifically the screen, is paramount in maintaining its practical usage. Thankfully, there are methods and items you can use to protect the screen and reinforce its effectiveness.

To protect an iPad screen, you should…

  • Keep the device away from water at all times.
  • Purchase a screen protector and
  • Ensure the iPad is in a durable case when travelling with it.
  • Avoid hitting or pressing the screen with excessive force.
  • Do not leave the iPad unattended around young children or animals.
  • Do not place excessive weight on the iPad.

Why are tablet screens sensitive?

The sensitivity of tablet screens is purely due to the fact that they are made from glass. Glass is the best material to use in order to have touchscreens that are accurate to your touch.

Unfortunately, the drawback to using glass is its sensitivity. However, opting to use a touch screen protector can easily reduce the likelihood of your screen taking damage, whilst not affecting the required sensitivity of the screen that allows you to navigate the device.
