With the impending release of the new iPad later this week, we are prepping for new iPad repairs so we’re ready on day one. In honor of the new iPad’s release, we are cutting iPad 2 repair prices across the board. Check out our iPad 2 Repair Page for a full listing of all of our iPad 2 repairs.
The most common repairs on an iPad 2 are digitizer replacements. That is, if you drop your iPad 2 and its glass is cracked, this is the repair you need.
We are in full iPad repairing mode. Our techs are super-excited to begin work on repairs for the new iPad and I can’t stop talking about despite being slightly underwhelmed about the Apple keynote last week.
Nonetheless, there’s still tons to be excited about. For example, the new iPhoto for iOS looks amazing. This is certainly a game changer when it comes to photo editing software on your iOS device (or any non-laptop mobile device). We all have our iPhones on us, having iPhoto in your pocket along with iMovie and the impressive Garageband makes anyone with an iPhone a walking media studio. The times are changing that’s for sure.
In the mean time you know what to do with your broken iPads. There has never been any more incentive than now to repair your busted, cracked, of flat-out broken iPad 2s.
Talk to you later.

And that’s just it. The new iPad. Nothing more, nothing less. iPad. I guess Apple is known for its minimalistic designs so who is to say that they can’t apply the same thing to their nomenclature? All of us were expecting either the iPad 3 or iPad HD, but Apple did it again and to the ire of all the pundits out there. Well that goes to show you, Apple does what it wants and you’ll probably hate it at first,but given the right amount of time you will grow to love it.
We all knew what the new iPad was going to be. It was going to have a Retina Display, better cameras, faster processer and more memory, but for the most part, it was going to look the same as the iPad 2. Sure iPhoto was a pleasant surprise and the new advances in Garageband are great, but we all knew what was coming. I don’t know about you, but these Apple press events are seeming to become a little underwhelming. The last times I remember being super excited after one of them was when Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone and then the iPad later on. I guess nowadays it takes a little more than an update on an existing product to excite us. Here’s looking to you, Apple Television Set.
Tomorrow I will give you all a little more information on what we are going to offer as far as repairs on the new iPad.

It doesn’t come as a surprise that Apple will begin using the 4G LTE network on its iOS devices. But this soon? Possibly as early as tomorrow we will see the first iOS device with LTE capability, the iPad 3. This means faster download/upload speeds. Will this cause you to use your iPad more frequently and for longer periods? Or will this decrease your time spent using you iPad? Does this mean you’ll suck up more bandwidth than you ever had and will hit your data limit sooner than expected? Let’s hope not, these data plans are NOT CHEAP!! Think about it, you could potentially have a data plan for your iPhone, your iPad, your brand new SONY Vita….who knows what’s next? Here’s my prediction, you’ll have to start paying for a dataplan when your next car is an Apple-integrated “Super Smart Car”.
One way or another, 4G LTE for the iPad and the iPhone are looking like a reality that is closer than you would expect. Everything is moving faster nowadays, just be sure to hang on to your iPhone’s and iPads, because like I discussed yesterday, it takes just a few feet and a an unlucky encounter with the pavement for your pristine iPhone 4S or iPad 3 to fall and break. But hey, that’s what we’re here for, to repair your broken iPhone’s and iPads with cracked screens!

March 7 can not come soon enough. As the clock ticks away to that fateful day, we are more eager than ever to get our hands on a fully working iPad 3. Photo’s of the Yerba Buena center, where Apple’s iPad 3 media event will be hosted, show a stylized color splash with a white Apple logo in the middle. One can look into this logo all they want and come away with many different ideas on what exactly it means. Looking at the banner image and attempting to draw conclusions from it is pure speculation, but fun nonetheless. What does this image imply?
Well for one, the banner image is not an iPad 3. Despite Apple’s invitations to the event showing a purported image of an iPad 3, we see nothing of that device on this banner. Does this imply that the event will not solely focus on the iPad 3? Will Apple focus on OS X Mountain Lion and its features as well? Will the new iPad run a version of Mountain Lion? As you can see, the possibilites are endless leaving Apple fanboys plenty of time to dream.
In any case, iResQ is fully prepared to take on whatever comes our way. Just as we brought you our premier iPad and iPad 2 repair services, we will bring you the world’s most trusted iPad 3 repair services.

As mentioned before, just because you plan on getting a new iPad 3 doesn’t mean you should throw away your broken iPad 2 or iPad 1. Repair prices for the iPad 1 and 2 have been dropping so take some time and get them fixed.
There are many things that you can do to repurpose your old iPad or iPad 2 as seen in this great article I saw on Macworld.com. The article touches base on what you can do with your old iPad including using it as a dedicated e-reader, using it as a point of sale credit card reader, using it as a digital picture frame, or simply just hand it down to a friend or family member. The choice is yours, young Padawan. For example, keeping an old iPad lying around the living room simply for referencing things during conversation can prove invaluable. Heck, during a discussion I had last weekend I learned what exactly makes tonic water “tonic” water using an old gen 1 iPad to look it up! Be prepared to dust off your old black-lights from college if you decide to read this article about tonic water.
Each day that passes gets us closer to Apple’s next big announcement. It will be a good one. Just remember to tune into your live blog of choice as this event will most likely not be streamed live. Personally I’m a fan of Gizmodo’s live blog so you might want to check them out when the time comes. I know I know, it can’t come soon enough but we all must wait.
