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.

With all of this talk about the iPad 3, any news about the iPhone 4S and iOS 5.1 seems to have been eclipsed. Let’s remember that Apple is more than likely going to announce more than just the iPad 3. This event is going to be big. We may hear something about the next iteration of the Apple TV, new Macbook Pro models, or even (gasp) the Apple TV!! Ok, maybe not the Apple TV but who knows?
Among the topics that Apple may discuss is iOS 5.1. Seeing iOS 5.1 in more detail is going to be great. There are many reasons to be excited about iOS 5.1. While iOS 5.1 may initially be available only for the iPad 3, rest assured, when its the iPhone 4S’ turn to receive the iOS 5.1 update, it will take full advantage of it. A more capable Siri? Yes please! Apple has done an amazing job updating its mobile platform with each iteration.
So before selling or throwing out that cracked or broken iPod Touch or iPhone 3G S, iResQ can repair it for you to get it ready for the new iOS. Remember, we just reduced prices on iPhone 4S repairs dramatically. iPhone 4S Screen repairs are at a record low of $99.

As we continue to repair a record number of iPad 2’s we’re gearing up for March 7th, when Apple will be introducing the iPad 3. Reports are now showing that Apple may be completely doing away with the iPad 3’s home button. In a recent photo that Apple has released, it shows an “iPad 3” with no home button. Oh rumors. Is it simply in landscape mode? Or is the iPad in portrait mode with no home button.
At first glance it looks like the spacing between Apps on the bottom launch bar is a little wide making it seem like the iPad 3 is in landscape mode. Or are we looking too close? Will the iPad 3 home button go away? Will it stay? Oh time will tell will it not? Needless to say, home button or not, iResQ will fix your broken iPad 3. If you have an iPad 3 with shattered glass, a dented backplate, broken home button (or not), we’re ready for it. Have a broken iPad 2? We can fix that for you as well.
Be sure to check in regularly to view any iPod, iPhone, iPad, or MacBook Pro repair discounts.

The iPad 3 is on the horizon as Apple appears to be gearing up for an early March announcement of the device. While I don’t expect anything truly revolutionary from the device, I do expect a higher resolution screen, faster processor, and of course, longer battery life. If your’e hoping for a new, smaller version of the iPad, I’d say don’t hold your breath. The late Steve Jobs made it clear that the iPad’s current size is the ideal size for a tablet style device. Personally, I would like to see smaller size as an option but I won’t be disappointed either way.
In advance of the impending release of the iPad 3 (hopefully) within the next month, iResQ is gearing up for every iPad 3 repair possible. iPad 3 owners need not fret when they drop their beloved iPad. Whether your iPad 3 has cracked glass or a broken lcd, we will always be your best option for getting it repaired. iPad repairs are what we do best. iPad 3 repairs will not be any different.
We are currently running a few specials on iPad 2 Broken Glass Repair and iPad Gen 1 Glass Repair so be sure to check them out. If you have an older broken iPad laying around while you wait to get a new iPad 3, now is the perfect time to get it fixed. You can either give it to a friend or loved one as a gift, or sell it towards your iPad 3 purchase.
Well, I’m gearing up for a frigid weekend here in KC. So be warm, be safe, and be easy. Ok, I admit, I stole that last line from our local sports talk radio personality Nick Wright. Either way, have a great weekend and don’t forget about Eric’s awesome Qpon!
