Hello M:R Nation –
The iPad 2 remains to be one our top sellers here at Mission Repair! Yes, after all of these years, the iPad 2 remains supreme. We actually have a dedicated team of iPad 2 repair technicians that eat, sleep and breath the iPad 2. This is the same team that repairs our iPad Minis, iPad Airs and iPad Mini With Retina. They welcome the challenge of the never ending flow of iPads and do a great job!
Why are there so many iPad 2 repairs? I think the question should actually be: Why are there still so many iPad 2s in general? The answer is simple…There is no “I gotta have it” difference between the iPad 2 and it’s two successors.When my 4 year old son cracked the screen on “his” iPad 2, I seriously considered buying “The iPad With Retina Display”. After going to the Apple store and taking it for a test drive, I really didn’t notice a difference. In fact, there was no difference at all. Now I understand the speed increases generated by the successors and the lightning charger that matches my iPhone 5, but it was and is not enough of a difference for me to replace the whole thing. So I decided to go the repair route.
