iPad Screen Repair

What to do When You Have a Cracked iPad Screen

Do you have a cracked iPad screen? 

You have three options to solve this unfortunate problem. The two most obvious are to get the screen repaired or replaced. So, what’s the third option? 

Leave it as is. Most tablets will continue to function even if the screen is cracked. If the crack doesn’t make it difficult to read what’s on the display, this will be the most affordable option. However, if you choose to repair it, visit Street Talk for all tablet repairs, including iPad screen repair in Bridgewater. 

We’re the shop you can trust to repair your smart devices in as little as 15 minutes. So, let’s take an in-depth look at all your options and by the end of this article, you can decide which route is best.

Repairing Your Tablet

If you have an iPad, replacing it won’t be cheap. Depending on which model you have, a replacement may cost up to $800. When trying to decide whether to repair or replace, you have a few considerations to make. First, will the cost to repair be more than one-half to two-thirds the cost of replacing the tablet? If so, a repair may not be worth the investment.

The large size of the iPad screen was one component that attracted you to it, but the size can make replacements surprisingly more expensive than customers anticipate. Nevertheless, when you bring your tablet into Street Talk, we will do our best to deliver a final product at the lowest possible price.

Replacing Your Tablet

If you have a large crack that has made the tablet inoperable, and the cost of repairing it is steep, consider replacing it with an iPad or other tablet that has a smaller screen size. In some cases, the cost of repairing a large screen is more expensive than it is to purchase a new, smaller model. If you can stand a smaller screen, this can be a viable option. Of course, make sure to first compare the cost of repairing to buying a new tablet.

If taking this route, once again, there are a few important considerations to make. The first is whether you will lose any data? If so, can you afford the loss? Will setting up a new tablet take more time than you can afford? Your answers will help you determine if replacing the iPad is for you.

Keep Your Tablet

If you are past Apple’s 1-year warranty and can’t afford to repair or replace your iPad, the third option is simply to keep it – cracks and all. Apple does not cover accidental damage, but if you are within the 1-year warranty and have a tiny crack, we recommend taking it to an Apple store to see if the damage can be repaired for free – they may do it depending on the size. However, if your screen is shattered, they certainly will not repair this. As a result, we recommend investing in a sturdy, protective case that comes with a plastic screen protector. This will prevent the crack from growing, while also protecting your fingers from getting cut.

A Fourth Option 

There is a final option that you may not have considered: sell your iPad. Many people purchase defective iPads, as they can easily find use in them. You may acquire a handsome fee, which you can then put towards replacing your original iPad with a newer, better model.
