Now that’s what a cracked iPad looks like.

Good morning,

Every now and again I’ll snap a picture of a device that we receive for repair and share it here on the blog.  Some are normal “cracks” and bends; others are smashed up pretty good.  For some reason, my blog readers love looking at smashed units…so Carl at my Mission, Kansas store sent this picture to me last night:

Now that’s what a cracked iPad is supposed to look like, right?

I often wonder how these things happen…obviously this unit was dropped…but the exact story gets lost in the repair sometimes.  This unit appears to have been “dragged” along the concrete, like it fell off the roof of a car or slid down the driveway.  Most of the time, it doesn’t matter to us “how” it happened, but knowing sometimes satisfies the curiosity!

Have a cracked iPad Screen?  No problem.  We will take care of that repair for you, just drive on down to one of our locations (no appointment necessary) or give us a call and we’ll send FedEx to pick it up from your location anywhere in the USA.  Yes, even where you live, wherever that may be.

iPad One to One – let’s share!

Hello again and Happy Monday!

Earlier I was writing about Apple’s 1 to 1 iPad program that is sweeping the Nation, but there’s a lot to think about when you’re son or daughter receives the device and heads home.

ipadlearn

We work with several schools performing iPad repairs for students (well, actually the parents!) that have accidents, and many of them don’t realize some of the caveats of their iPad agreements that come with the device. Most schools that disperse iPads to students include agreements and policies that bind you to some rules. It’s for a great reason; mainly to ensure that the school gets their device back each year…but again each school has different rules when it comes to damages and subsequently the repair that is needed.

When you find that your policy doesn’t cover breakages…give us a call at Mission Repair. We repair iPads for schools all across the country, but even more we repair iPads for parents that find themselves responsible for the repair. This can be for a cracked screen, broken charging port, liquid damage or other issue that happens in life.

Just remember Mission Repair, we have a customer service representative standing by just for you.

Take care, Ryan

iPads + School in session = Cracked Glass

Good morning!

There’s a reason that both teachers and students love the iPad. It enables endless opportunities to create hands-on, customizable learning experiences. I’ve seen it first hand after visiting several schools in the area and watching children in the classroom use the iPad like it was always a part of their life. And now it is.

ipadsinschools

We’ve found many schools with a need for quick and professional service on cracked iPad screens; most institutions implement a fee on the parents for damages; others do not. While many schools are moving to the Apple “1 to 1” program starting as early as elementary school, the repair prospect is an expensive one for both the students and the schools.

This is where Mission Repair steps in. We offer customized programs for schools in the Kansas City area and across the nation. We don’t have restrictions or “deductibles”, and you don’t need to buy a service plan. When you’re in need, simply give us a call or set up a repair online. We will have your iPad up and running and back into your hands in no time. Have you ever seen a 7 year old with an iPad? I have…and I’ve also seen what can happen with a simple “slip, drop or oops!”.

Mission Repair is on hand and standing by.

To Schools: We accept Educational Purchase Orders, and we have been for almost 8 years. We are here for you!

Take care, Ryan

Is the iPad “MEGA” on it’s way?

Hi there,

I’m not sure if you follow the rumor mill or not when it comes to Apple products, but there’s a buzz about a 12.9″ iPad that may hit this year. Apple’s iPad kickstarted the tablet craze and recent rumors suggest the world’s most valuable company has an even bigger one on the way.

According to an online report from Taiwanese blog “DigiTimes”, components for a 12.9″ iPad are being readied for Apple to take delivery in September.

However, because demand for tablets is slowing, the technology giant has lowered its initial supply order.

So while a larger iPad could be available by the end of the year, you might not necessarily be able to get hold of one – Apple had a similar delay for the launch of the Apple Watch, although that was due to not being able to get hold of enough components in the first place.

Apple’s current iPads are either 9.7-inches (iPad Air and iPad Air 2) or 7.9-inches (iPad mini 3 and iPad mini 2).

It’s exciting to think that the electronics giant will be adding a new form factor to the lineup, which means that we here at Mission Repair will be adding it to our iPad repair lineup as well.

I remember thinking that no one would want a huge iPhone like the iPhone 6 Plus; but clearly I was wrong. So I’m going to take a new approach to the new “iPad Mega” (that’s what I’m calling it anyway) and say that I’m POSITIVE that consumers will love it. I’d suggest just keeping it out of the hands of your 3-year old. . .it’s going to take two GROWN UP hands to handle this one! We’ll see…

Happy Tuesday, Ryan
