Have You Heard About Apple’s New iPad Air 2?

That’s right. Apple released a new iPad Air that has brand new features and I wanted to take a moment to talk about it.

The new iPad Air is 18% thinner making it the thinnest iPad ever. Consequently, it is also lighter than the original iPad Air. The iPad Air 2 is also available in a gold version (much like the iPhone) AND offers Touch ID. This is the same function that the iPhone 5S has – users are able to unlock their device and various apps with the touch of a finger. According to Apple, they have redesigned the Retina display to offer even more vivid colors and better contrast. Lastly, this iPad has an anti-reflective coating – the ONLY iPad with this new feature.

Keep in mind, Apple isn’t promoting a launch date for their new iPads (they also released a new iPad Mini 3) like they do for iPhones, however they are expecting the new iPads to be available in stores today.

So will Mission:Repair be repairing these units? YOU BET. Keep an eye out for New iPad 2 Repair Services coming soon!

iPad Camera rumor becoming a reality? We think so.

Hello all-

We received our first shipment of iPad parts today. Here’s one of the metal internal frames:

Upon opening them up and getting our hands on some of these rare items, we immediately noticed what appears to be a “spot” for a camera within the iPad frame.

Hmmmm.

We pulled a camera from a Unibody MacBook. Just a standard camera unit that we see everyday.

Guess what, it fits right in there. The camera slips in the frame, the lens fits in the hole, the LED that indicates that the camera is on, fits, and the ambient light sensor hole is also correct. It appears that the plans to have camera in the iPad is a reality. I’m looking forward to the iPad. . .Rev 2.

More inside pics coming soon!
