Broken iPad Mini Screen? Mission Repair Has Your Back!

Hello M:R Nation –

The iPad Mini is one of our favorites here at Mission Repair and I think this is old news by now. We have gushed about the design, usability and perfect size for years now and its just something that we can’t control. When something is this good, it’s hard to keep our admiration hide!

With this, you can imagine how we feel when we see one of these perfect little devices in a state of disrepair. Luckily, we have the ability to do something about this. After much training and hard work over the last couple of years, Mission Repair can repair any issue that you might have with your iPad Mini.

Hello friends.

This is my first breath of the day – it’s a rocking Monday here at the Mission Repair headquarters. I thought this would be the calm before the shopping “storm” that’s headed our way on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Ready – set – get your wallets out because the holiday shopping season is here!

So we’ve been fairly active on Facebook lately and just cracked 11,000 likes this morning. This is great news because the word is spreading fast and more and more people are talking about Mission Repair. I mean, we’re not Apple (that has almost 1 million likes I might add) but we are fans of Apple, and the Apple service specialists. You might even call us Apple geniuses but I wouldn’t want to take that title from the employees that work at the Apple Stores…we’ll let them have it 😉

Is this exciting news for you? Well, maybe not as exciting as it is to me, but it is a reminder to like us on Facebook so you can get the latest specials and posts that just might be of interest to you. It might even save you some righteous bucks on your next iPad repair.

I know for a fact that if you take a cracked iPad to the Genius Bar at Apple, you’ll be spending a heck of a lot more than if you brought it to Mission Repair – and we service the entire country.

Who’s the genius now?

Have a good afternoon, Ryan

iPad 2 VS The New iPad(3) VS iPad With Retina Display(4)

Hello M:R Nation –

I think there might be some confusion among folks over the differences are between the different iPad models. So allow me to shed some light on some of the subtle and not so subtle differences.

Form the outside, you are not going to be able to notice much, if any differences at first glance. All 3 devices are 9.50″ x 7.31″ x 0.37″, all have a 9.7″ display and all sport a facetime and rear camera, but a great way to tell the difference between an iPad 2 and the others is the Siri function. All newer generation iOS devices have Siri.

Now to tell the difference between the The New iPad and iPad With Retina Display is very simple, just look at the bottom of the iPad. You will see  The New iPad  has the old 30 pin connector and the iPad With Retina Display sports the great new “Lightning” connector which looks like this:

iPad with Retina Display

Those are just some industry tips that we use here daily to identify what you are sending to us. While most folks get it right, we do have the occasional customer that orders the wrong service. Hopefully this can serve as a guide for those of you that are not quite sure. Moving forward, lets talk about the inside of these great devices.

This is where it can get complicated, so I won’t go too in depth. The iPad 2 had a lot less in common with it’s two successors when it comes to the internals. Take the glass/digitizer for an example. The iPad 2 has a completely different connector than the The New iPad and the iPad With Retina Display which share the same cable (Shown in the picture below).

In fact, the LCD is the same on the two successors as well. Now, we don’t usually disclose this type of information, but I want to make one thing clear, The New iPad and the iPad with Retina display use the SAME screen. So PLEASE, don’t fall for the marketing tricks of other companies and pay more for the iPad with Retina display, It is exactly the same and it should cost the same as The New iPad repair!

For further internal information, check out this comparison chart. It really shows some key differences and similarities between the 3 models.

As you can see, looks can be deceiving. While these 3 models look identical, they are for the most part different and different for the better. This is what Apple is known for. Taking something great and slightly improving it for the better.

Lastly, I want to shed some light on the biggest thing these 3 iPads have fiercely in common. Mission:Repair services all of them! We do the leg work on finding the differences and sourcing those different parts so you don’t have to deal with it:-)!

From screens to headphone jacks and everything in between, we are you one stop shop for iPad repair. I hope this post has helped you to identify what iPad you own. Even if it is not broken, it’s still good to just know. If it is broken, I hope find some of the links below helpful. Just click and enjoy!

Back to School Specials – iPad Repairs on sale!

Hello there everyone, we are in the “back to school” spirit!

My wife Dandra is an Elementary School Librarian, and let me tell you that we are most certainly in “Back to School mode” around the Arter house! If you saw my last blog post you’ll also remember that I helped my daughter move into her new college apartment. I’m still “hot” from that move 😉

Of course I appreciate teachers and students, but I want to offer a Mission Repair special that will most likely affect the parents out there. I know that the back to school time of the year is hectic (and expensive) but a lot of students will want their iPads repaired before the school year begins. I know this first hand, the students want something which equals to the parents shelling out some cash!

So to help ease the financial pain we’re offering $40 off your iPad screen repair for the next 2 weeks. This is a HUGE savings off of our normal prices and all you need to do is use coupon “B2S” to receive your $40 discount.

Click here for Original iPad Glass Repairs.
Click here for iPad 2 Glass Repairs.
Click here for New iPad Glass Repairs.

Remember that this is good now through August 24th, 2012 and due to high demand, we can only offer 1 coupon per customer (and this coupon even works on SALE PRICES!). Order now and don’t worry – we’ll get you fixed up!

Thanks, Ryan

Misson Repair Memorial Day Weekend Hours! Duly noted. . .

Hello folks, we’re hard at work here at Mission Repair getting orders out for the big holiday weekend approaching! I’m running around my business like a madman, trying to put the finishing touches on a few items so we can get out of here for the Memorial Day Weekend approaching! Here’s an action shot of our resident Marine, Ryan Flynn stripping down an iPhone for a glass repair:

Ryan Flynn – master iPhone technician!

We have a new process and production line here at Mission Repair with several stations (“Flynn” is working at Station #3 – assembly) and he’s always down for a picture. He’s a great guy and technician.

I just wanted to let you all know that we are open for business as usual on Saturday and Sunday, but we are closed for Memorial Day on Monday May 28, 2012. Our offices and service lab are closed for the day. Don’t worry though, we’ll continue to press forward even though we’re short a day this month, we understand how important it is to have your repaired devices back in your hands asap.

Do you have any big plans for the weekend? I’m thinking “boat”, I don’t know why 😉

Take care, Ryan (Arter)
