We get this question ALL THE TIME…and it can be confusing. There’s a long line of Apple devices that the screens are pre-built at the factory in a clean room environment which makes separating the glass from the LCD difficult. That’s why we replace the glass/digitizer/lcd together in one entire assembly to ensure that our customers get a factory repair for those particular devices (Most iPhones are like this!)
iPads are an entirely different story. Every iPad to date has a separate and individually replaceable glass and LCD…except for the iPad Air 2. That’s one caveat that I sometimes forget but I think that I’ve got it committed to memory at this point. Here’s an iPad Mini 3 that Derrick is finishing up for a customer that walked into our Lakewood location this afternoon:
This picture is a little difficult to tell, but the glass is going on OVER the LCD, which is separate. And in most cases, the outer glass is what usually breaks when one of these devices is dropped; and since it’s separate it saves each of our customers big bucks when choosing Mission Repair for service.
So there are a few tidbits that might make you more educated when talking about iPads…or maybe you don’t care in which case you now have a little more useless knowledge for your next trivia night 😉

It’s been 2 days and my son Casey came to me last night and said “Whew, I’m tired. I’m not used to getting up and thinking all day at school”. Yeah, those summer breaks are pretty nice aren’t they bud? He’s adapting but he’s also a senior in High School and “real” life is about to hit him hard. I hope “senioritis” doesn’t set in too early in the year for him!

Happy Friday friends! It’s true…football 2014 has started.
Have you made your fantasy football picks yet? Just so you know, I had to stop playing fantasy football. It’s not that I’m better than it, nor was I actually very good at playing; it is just too big of a distraction from the games I really want to watch, so this year I am NOT going to play.
Now with that being said, I know that just about every one of my friends is in a league or two and I’m definitely not “normal” in that sense. In fact, some of my buddies think that I’m absolutely nuts. Hey guys, you’re just going to have to deal with it!
For the rest of you that are either NFL fans or not, it’s hard to not notice that the football season has started. In fact we are running a football promotion with discounts on every repair service that we offer through our newsletter that is going out to tens of thousands of customers today. Keep an eye out for it, because there will be a special coupon just for you football fans out there. It’s a great time to get hat iPad or Computer repaired. Well you don’t actually have to be a fan, but you might notice a common “pigskin” theme hit your email inbox shortly. Not signed up for our newsletter yet? Sign up now!
Until then, have a great afternoon and I’ll be back soon with more great Mission Repair info.
