Repairing an iPad with Apple
It is possible to get a repair from Apple if you are still within your manufacturer warranty. It is also available after your warranty period. However, you will be charged for this repair.
According to Apple’s website, a repair for a iPad 9th generation that isn’t a battery issue, costs an estimated £279. This price can either increase or decrease after they have obtained the specific details they require from you and assessed the level of damage.
There is a way to receive repairs from Apple at a reduced rate. This is done by opting into AppleCare+, this subsidises the costs of repairs and gives you access to additional support services. To put it into context, the 9th gen iPad goes from £279, to £39 to repair when you are with AppleCare+.
Services include 24-hour priority calling, however, you still have to pay a monthly fee of £9.99, this might not be worth it for some, along with a cheaper price to repair the fault at hand.
When should you change a damaged screen?
A damaged screen can be characterised as a screen with a crack, either small or all-encompassing. Scratches do also count as damage, but not to a degree where it can affect the usability of the phone, unless it is a very deep scratch.
Any crack on a screen can compromise the integrity of the rest of the screen, even if the original crack is small, it can easily develop on further impact. We recommend changing your screen immediately upon finding a crack. Failure to address it can result in…
- Further cracks.
- Dead pixels.
- Internal damage.
- Contaminants entering the device.
- A blank screen

Should I upgrade my iPad?
If your iPad is beyond repair, or you’ve had it for so long that its overdue an upgrade, it may be daunting to replace an iPad considering their premium pricing. However, refurbished iPads offer the chance to have a higher specification iPad at a lower price.
Refurbished iPads are seen to by Apple themselves, resulting in a professionally cleaned device, internally, externally and to a high degree of detail. Within this refurbishment, the operating software is tested, resulting in a device that is almost as good as new.
This differs from devices that are pre-owned and sold, most pre-owned devices (depending on the seller) have had a superficial clean and a factory reset, rather than repair. So even though a refurbished device could cost more than a pre-owned device, the difference in quality can be stark.
Are iPads the best tablets?
iPads are definitely a premium option when it comes to tablets, if you already own multiple Apple devices, then an iPad will allow for greater connectivity between your devices, along with a familiar operating system and apps.
That being said, is an iPad is the best? It honestly comes down to personal preference, it can’t be argued that Apple are certainly leading the market when it comes to their iPads. But by the same token, a iPad may be confusing, daunting, and hard to adjust to if you’ve never used an Apple device before.
