‘Right to Repair’ is gaining popularity, and we wanted to share with you what has been going on right now. Many states are attempting to have legislation vote in favor of ‘Right to Repair.’ This would give repair shops access to parts and service manuals for Apple products, so they are able to repair them just as Apple does right now.
The people for this legislation want it to happen because they believe that repair shops should be able to repair their devices with OEM parts instead of generic ones.
Apple doesn’t want this to happen because they monopolize on the cost of repairs for MacBooks, iPhones, iPads, and iPods because they know owners can’t get the OEM parts from anywhere else. If ‘Right to Repair’ passes, repair shops can offer it and they can do it for a better price.
Right now, these states are the states are currently looking to pass ‘Right to Repair’ legislation.
As you can see, Kansas is on this list, so we of course want this legislation to pass. This would enable us to provide even more than we already do for our customers.
We do want to say that while this would be great for us, what we offer now isn’t low quality. We always use the VERY best in parts when we do repairs. We never buy the lowest quality parts just so we can make more money off our repairs. We know this could end up limiting the longevity of our repairs, and we’re not willing to do that to our customers.
Do we think OEM parts are better than non-OEM? Not really. Some people prefer OEM parts just because they feel better that the parts are the same as the ones that came in their devices originally. As we all know, OEM parts’ longevity isn’t fail proof, or well, they wouldn’t need repairs, especially when it’s case where it’s not damage but simple malfunctioning.
So, even though this may pass and it may be something we do when it does, that doesn’t downgrade what we do now. We still stand fully behind the parts we use in all of our repairs and will always stand behind it.

iPads break too, and we get that. That’s why we are here to fix your device, no matter when, where, or what the problem is.
Dropping an iPad in the pool happens almost as often as the same issue occurring with a cell phone. In addition, many people don’t realize that the batteries on their iPads wear out over time, just like with their phones, computers, and other devices. As a result, we are well versed in dealing with water damaged, cracked, and broken iPads as well as just devices that need a new battery or a little fine tuning. We’d be more than happy to take a look at your device and figure out the problem.
If you’re not sure what the problem is with your device, we can perform a free diagnostic test and let you know. For example, if your iPad is lagging and taking forever to load anything (and you’ve already performed every battery-saving, speeding-up trick in the book), take it to us. We’ll check it out, figure out what’s going on, and give you a clear idea of the problem.
We will also tell you how much it will cost to fix your iPad and what we will do to fix it. Again, you don’t have to pay for this diagnostic test. It’s completely free.
If you have a busy schedule and don’t know when you can bring your iPad in for a quick look, don’t worry. We will come to you and take a look at your device in your home, office, or another convenient location. This is an option we provide for those who are unsure of how they’re going to find the time to get their devices fixed because no one should have to choose between going to work and having a working iPad.
Once you approve the diagnostic and decide to have your iPad fixed with us, we will get you your device back within 24-hours guaranteed. We know how hard it is to be without a device you count on so we’ll make sure to get it back to you ASAP and as good as new!
You can call today to discuss your device’s problem or ask any questions you may have about iPad repair.

You only left the room for a few minutes. Your child was sitting happily on the couch, playing a game on her favorite parent-approved site on the family’s iPad. Upon your return you see a giant crack across the face of the tablet. How on earth did this happen so quickly? A more important answer is how and where can you get the iPad fixed?
Believe it or not, it’s at this point that many families—after attempting to use their iPad with a giant crack for a few days—decide the unit is toast and opt to invest even more money into purchasing the latest, greatest model.
Don’t do that! Did you know there are reputable businesses just waiting to repair your broken iPad? You simply take it in or mail it in, and it comes back to you as good as new.
Having your broken iPad repaired saves you a bundle of money. Surely you’ve noticed how the prices increase exponentially with each new model. You can have the screen on your iPad—and many others repairs done—for a fraction of the cost of a replacement. In most instances, you can enjoy several more years of active use on your tablet once you have it repaired.
Once your broken iPad is en route to the repair shop, it’s time to address the little (or big) culprit who broke it. Some hard and fast rules are likely your best bet in ensuring this kind of incident doesn’t take place in the future.
Designate one specific spot for iPad use. A table and chair are your best bet, as accidents don’t tend to take place as frequently when the tablet is on a table.
Try to stay in view of the child using the iPad. Certainly this isn’t always possible, and as with our aforementioned scenario, the parent was only out of sight for a very few minutes. Knowing your close at hand means there’s less chance of the child sneaking off with the iPad when Mom or Dad isn’t looking.
The iPad is a privilege for children and should be used as such. Simple rules about where and how often it is used will result in greater respect for the tablet—and hopefully fewer mishaps, too.
Call us for questions about iPad repair. We employ skilled technicians and use the best in replacement parts when fixing your tablet.

We can ensure your iPad is in the best hands when it comes to fixing screens, replacing batteries, or anything else with which you may need help. We offer free diagnostic sessions, and if you decide to have your device fixed at our location, we will draw up a plan to ensure that you know how much your repairs will cost and when you can expect your device back. It is our guarantee that we will have an iPad with a smashed screen back to you, good as new, within 24 hours.
Indeed it is. We know how important it is to have your device back as soon as possible, and we’ve all gone through the agony of not having our phones or iPads ready when we needed them. Therefore, we strive to make sure all clients receive their devices within a full day of their decision to have it repaired with us; that is our promise to you.
Though you may have the know-how—or at least a helpful video on YouTube—it isn’t likely your device is fixable within the allotted time frame if you try to do it yourself. First of all, buying the materials to fix a broken screen is usually a hassle, and you will likely have to wait a while for the new screen to be delivered to you anyway. Then, with the possibility that you could make a mistake and create a worse problem than the one you started with, fixing it yourself isn’t exactly the best or the easiest option.
It certainly won’t be the fastest, as we’ve got screens for all manner of devices (including iPads) in stock and professional technicians who have fixed more shattered screens than they can count. That adds up to a fast fix you can expect within 24 hours of bringing your device to us.
We are happy to do a free diagnostic and to take a look at your iPad screen. Afterwards, we can let you know how much the repairs will be and get your device back to you as quickly as possible.

One of the quickest battery drains is an unnecessarily bright screen. Especially if you are indoors, you can lower your brightness to less than half and still be able to see your screen just fine. You can do this by swiping open the Control Center and using the brightness slider or by entering Settings and then Display & Brightness
Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and AirDrop are all taking up battery life when they are left on. If you do not need these programs at the moment then you can turn them off in your Settings menu or in your Control Center. Handoff is another battery waster you can turn off if you’re unlikely to want to switch tasks between your iPhone and your iPad.
In addition, leaving apps open when you’re not using them can also drain your battery. It’s a good idea to close any apps you’re finished with—even if you think you’ll use them later—if you’re trying to save some battery life for when later comes.
All of these (often unnecessary) services that your apps will be more than happy to perform are huge battery wasters, especially because they are usually going on when you don’t need them to be. You don’t really need push notifications for most apps, and having one of your fast food apps knowing where you are all the time is kinda creepy. You can turn off location services, push notifications, and background app refresh for certain apps as you see fit, or if you prefer, turn them all off entirely.
Allowing your device to get overheated can also drain the battery, so it’s important to make sure you keep your iPad nice and cool. It’s usually best to maintain a temperature of below 72 degrees if you can (and no higher than 95 degrees), so if you take your device to the beach, keep it out of the sun.
It may be time to get a new battery for your device if you’re spending all your time trying to save your battery life. Call today for a free diagnostic.
