iPad 5 - iPad 2017 - Provides Best Repair Value in Years!

The latest iPad 2017 - iPad 5 - Best iPad Repair value in many years

Apple frequently changes their iPad designs with dramatically can affect the iPad Repair industry.  This is true yet again, but this time it has resulted in much lower prices for iPad Screen Repair in many years of work.  The screen and LCD are now engineered and manufactured as separate parts inside the iPad, resulting in a new (similar to the old) approach for repairing the iPad family of devices.

When the iPad family was introduced by Apple, it introduced a collection of issues in repair for Apple iPad owners.   The large glass screens were susceptible to damage and breaking glass and resulted in the need for a whole spawned industry of iPad repairs for damaged, cracked, and broken screens.  This means that there were lots of customers needing this particular repair, including schools, individuals, and organizations.

Large and small companies alike around the world sprung up to fix the damage on iPad screens.  In the USA companies like RepairZoom and Apple both created work-flows for this situation.  And many consumers and businesses have used these companies, and many others to fix their damaged screens, LCD's, home buttons, power buttons, and other parts of the iPad susceptible to damage.

iPad Screen Design Changes

Over the years the engineers at Apple in Cupertino California have updated and changed iPad designs.  Many of these changes are minor, and have not affected prices for iPad Screen Repairs.  However, when the iPad Air 2 was introduced, the price for a screen repair nearly tripled, due to the complex nature of the "screen LCD assembly", which for the first time was completely fused together.  Consumers found this trend continuing when the iPad Pro family of iPads was introduced.  Screen repair prices stayed very high.

But in early 2017, Apple introduced the newest iPad, dubbed the "iPad 5" or "iPad 2017".  And good news Apple Fans... the screen design has been modified again, this time cutting the cost of screen repairs by two-thirds!  Most iPad screen repairs on the new iPad 5 or iPad 2017 are back in the neighborhood of about $100.  This is great for Schools with iPad 1:1 programs and others where saving money is of value (um, like everyone!).

Anyway, we hope to see Apple's engineers stay on this trend of highly repairable devices.  Consumer love them, and so do Apple repair shops worldwide.  The repairs are fast and easy and cheap.  Happy words for those who love (but break) their iPads.
