Ok, you want more deals of the month? Here you go.

Well I could just stop at one…but the blogger in me says to “keep typing!”

So we’re lowering our price on another popular repair for the iPad with Retina glass replacement service.  This is also known as the 4th generation iPad (it’s a full-sized iPad, not a mini) and we receive these by the truckload from schools around the country.

Now’s the time to grab a special on this repair with no coupon needed!

I mentioned it in my last blog that this is a leap year.  So February gets an extra day of fun in it; I like that because it extends the month a bit and makes things easier on the business (this special runs until 2/29/16!).  It’s also a fun day that I’ve only seen 10 of in my life so far; 10 leap years.  Yikes.  I have a good friend that was born on leap year so we will be celebrating with her soon; she turns 40 years old, but is only 10 in leap years.  She’s such a youngster.

Take care, and send us an email if you have any questions about our services.

Apple 1:1 School Repair Program at Mission Repair

Hello there friends,

We’ve got a lot to talk about as we have made some simple changes in our Apple One to One School Repair program – if you didn’t already know, we offer repairs to schools around the country to assist in their efforts to maintain student devices.

Not only is this something that we have been doing for over 8 years (even before the One to One Program was released) and we’re happy to report that we are providing services for even some “Apple-Distinguished Schools” as time has progressed.

Why?  It’s a matter of economics.  There are scenarios that Mission Repair is a far better fit for some school districts than AppleCare.  Apple has done a good job of selling units and service programs, but they don’t do something that Mission Repair does, and that’s offer a better price on a service for a unit that has already been repaired once before.

It’s called our Got Repair program, and it’s the shining light that schools are looking for.

The best part about it is that even if you use our services as an “end user”, you get the Got Repair benefit automatically on our screen repairs.  Just check it out on our site, and you may know why Mission Repair stands above the rest.

Take care, Ryan

The iPad Pro – will it be for you?

Hello friends, Apple recently announced the iPad Pro; and of course we will be offering repairs for it soon here on the Mission Repair website.

There’s a lot of talk about who and what this tablet was designed for. Specifically since of it’s high price tag, that it could replace a laptop for high-end executives that travel, read the news, email, watch movies and work within their proprietary vertical market software. Again these devices are about $950 on average and there won’t be one in every household (in my humble opinion).

Jason Perlow for Tech Broiler writes:

“But if the iPad Pro is the future of computing, particularly for executive task workers and for high-end data visualization, then we really need to think about capacity management in the cloud and how we may need to re-architect existing LOB apps originally designed for Client-Server, now being lifted and shifted to IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) to minimize development, to scale as PaaS (Platform as a Service) in massively multi-tenant, public cloud environments.

Because without the Cloud, the iPad Pro is just a very expensive executive paperweight.”

I think he’s got some validity there, but even though I don’t imagine these devices selling like the iPad Mini where I see them in the hands of children, I do think that the consumer group that just simply likes a big screen will wait in line to have the next big thing. Is it for me? I don’t think so.

My son has the iPhone 6 Plus, and it’s a little too much. I still remember loving my iPhone 4S; but I’ve settled into my iPhone 6. Size does matter in the electronics world, and I think I’ll stick with my iPad 4 for a while. At least until I become a big important business executive that is!

She droped her iPad then this happened:

Hello Mission Repair fans…

We got a call from a customer yesterday that said “I cracked my iPad, and I can see the electronics inside of it!”

We’ve found that this a very common issue for our customers, but for the “first timer” it can be a bit unnerving. The glass on these units is fragile and cracked pieces of the glass can actually fall out and expose the internals of the unit.

Here’s a common looking cracked white iPad as we receive them here at Mission Repair:

A close-up shows the missing pieces:

If you read my blog a few days ago, we suggested adding strips of tape to the face of the broken glass to stop pieces from getting loose. You can reread that blog here.

The answer is that most of the time your iPad will continue to work like it’s design to; even with the glass hunks missing. However, be aware that this greatly “ups the odds” of a failure. When you can see the inside of your device, it’s time to get it repaired!

We constantly receive units in from customers all over the country and we are experts at this kind of repair.

Questions about your next iPad repair? Give us a call at 866-638-8402.

Take care, Ryan

We’re starting them young!

Hello friends,

It’s a fun afternoon here at Mission Repair; if you’ve ever called in to the office, you may have gotten Derrick on the phone. If you’ve sent in a tablet, there’s a great chance that this amazing technician has worked on it!

Derrick had his son, Mason, come in and sit with him for a few minutes. This kid is seriously cute; he grabbed a screwdriver and got to work 😉 Ok, he didn’t actually work on your unit (don’t worry!) but he did run around the office and melted everyone’s hearts. I can get him to work on your device, but I’m not sure that it would be best for business. Plus he’s just slightly too young for the payroll!

I’ll just have him up front for the cuteness factor, trust me, he takes the cake!

When it comes to blogging, I wonder if it’s worth it.

Hi friends,

We spend an awful lot of time around the Mission Repair headquarters deciding on what to blog about next and when. There are days that I wonder if it’s worth the work – I mean we have to stop what we are doing, come up with a topic, write about it, proofread it (I know we make mistakes), make sure the links are working and post it. There are times that I try to get a blog posted (like this morning) but other issues throughout the day take precedence and inevitably take me off of my path.

Is-it-Worth-It

This morning I received an email from James K., one of the Mission Repair Blog Subscribers…I’ll cut and paste the part that I found especially helpful:

“I like it when you blog, and I look forward to receiving an email with your entiries. Your personal stories interest me and I sometimes think that we have a lot in common. Your business seems like it is going very well and it’s great to hear that you’re expanding and growing. I appreciate what you have done for me, you fixed my iPhone 5 last December. Keep up the good work and I’m looking forward to your next special.

Sincerely, James K. Decatur, IL.

P.S. I need my iPad Mini fixed- can that be the special of the month for June?”

Well, just when I think “I wonder if it’s worth it”, I get an email like this from a blog fan and my question is answered. It is worth the work, it defines Mission Repair and separates us from the competition – because these kinds of emails drive me to continue and validate our efforts.

So thank you James for the awesome email. I know that I’ve already replied to you individually, but now I’m also commending you in front of all of our readers – there are over 800,000 unique readers by the way – I offer my sincere thanks for reaching out.

Take care everyone, and have a great day. I’ll be blogging about some great news so stay tuned because I feel that there might be an iPad Mini special coming soon. Just for you James…
