IPad cracked screen

Postby Campo Steve » Wed May 29, 2013 8:36 pm

Can anyone recommend anyone that can repair i.e. replace, a cracked screen on an iPad with retina display? Velez Malaga area would be ideal but I suspect I may have to travel further afield.

Take it to the Apple Store in Marbella.

They might even give you a new one.

There are very few repairers around.

Depending on which ipad you have your only option may be the apple store. I dropped my iphone 5 last week and the only person who could repair it was the apple store.

Cost £180

It's a third generation ipad, the one with retina display, so looks like a trip to Marbella is on the cards.

I noticed a hairline crack in the glass a couple of weeks ago but it got dropped onto concrete this week and the crack got worse. Fortunately it is still working, for now.

This isn't a serious remark but wouldn't it be good if you could take it to one of those windscreen people who do invisible repairs :wtf:

If I thought a tube of Unibond glass repair epoxy would do the job I would try it but I am too concerned it would upset the effectiveness of the touch screen, although the crack is out of sight behind the leather cover, which didn't protect it when it was dropped.

I think I wouldn't worry about it unless the screen actually fails, I'd just keep on using it until then.

So that suggests that the crack is outside the screen area - in which case you might get away with it.

I would still try the Apple Store if it is under warranty as they might just swap it out.

Company in the UK called foneangels does repairs
90 quid for ipad3 glass.
Nothing on the website to suggest they send overseas but might be worth a look if all else fails.

Have you checked to see if accidental damage is covered by your household insurance?

I’ve looked but can’t find the invoice [giving the address] but I sent an iPad to have screen replaced, after a silly quote from Apple, to a UK based company. Just north of Birmingham if I recall.

Sent it off and it was returned back to Spain in 8 working days, for I think 45 pounds.

Google “iPad repairs, UK” and you will find loads of companies doing the same.

Thanks for the tip. We used this service for our badly cracked Ipad screen. Cost €120, took 2 days, Djamel did a great job and we would definitely recommend him and use him again.
