You can’t do much with your iPad or iPhone if you can’t get it to connect to the Internet. Almost everything that you do nowadays grabs information from the Internet. When it doesn’t work, you may feel like it’s broken forever. That’s not the case.
When your iPhone or iPad does not connect to the Internet, there are a few things that could be going wrong.
These are the steps you should take when trying to troubleshoot the problem with your device. Check your Wi-Fi connection first. You may want to try to connect in another way – for example, see if your computer will connect to it. If that works fine, you should check the settings next.
Go into settings and then check if everything is correct with the password. Try to disconnect from the network and reconnect. That can solve Wi-Fi problems sometimes. You may also want to turn your phone off and on again to see if that will fix it.
If none of those work, you can try to reset your device. Be sure to back up your device or you’ll end up losing all of your data. That can be devastating if you use your devices a lot for work and personal scheduling and information. Once you back up it up, reset it to factory settings. You will then be able to set up the iPhone or iPad as if it’s a new device.
If the Wi-Fi still doesn’t work after you set up the connection again after the reset, it’s time to call iResQ. We have free diagnostics. Our certified technicians will find out what’s wrong with the Wi-Fi and then call you with the problem. You can then decide if you want to have us repair it or send it back to you unrepaired.

Hello again everybodies. It’s that time of year again. Summer is fast approaching. Summer with a capital S, as in 5S, as in iPhone updates! Actually, that’s not likely to happen in June, but I had no where else to go with that motif. So, if iPhone updates are coming in September, what will we see in June? iPad news? Again, the iPad is practically driving Apple right now along with the iPhone, so it will probably warrant its own media event when there is big news to be had. So we’re probably looking at OSX, iOS and possibly Mac notebook updates this time around. Rumors include Retina displays on the MacBook Air, a new sleeker iOS with a touch of Jony Ives, and more ever-decreasing margins of difference between the mobile iOS juggernaut and it’s dying OSX counter part. Coverage starts in about a week and a half, so stay tuned for analysis. In the meantime, your broken gear is still worth getting fixed, so we’re here for you if you need MacBook screen repair, iPad digitizer replacement, or your iPhone took a bath. Have a great week folks.

Well, friends. It’s been an eventful few weeks here in Olathe, Kansas. Business is booming as usual, everyone is going crazy for the NCAA tournament and our annual office pool, and we’re bringing on several new techs to keep up with the workload from our loyal customer base. Stay tuned to meet the newbies. We’re following all the Apple product development rumors for you, and it’s looking more and more likely that a new iPhone or two will be at least announced if not available on shelves by summer 2013. We may, as the rumors have been suggesting, see a cheaper model made from alternative materials, or it may just be the yearly processor and feature upgrade in the form of a 5S. In the mean time, if you drop your iPhone 5, or for that matter your MacBook Pro, iPod or iPad, we’re here to help.
And for you particularly fanatical Apple nuts, you’ll be pleased to know a second Steve Jobs biopic has been green lighted, and in fact will beat the Kutcher film to the small screen. The interweb screen, that is. Before Jobs is released later this year, check out the self-proclaimed FiRST movie about Steve Jobs at Funny or Die, “iSteve”. Here’s a teaser:
Have a great week, everyone.

Greetings all. This is your very own Apple rumor monger, Keith! Ok maybe I’m not a rumor monger, but I do like to talk about new Apple products that have yet to be released (or announced for that matter). Around here, we don’t just talk about iPad repairs, we talk everything Apple. The topic of today’s blog: the Mini iPad.
Let’s start by talking about what we currently know about the purported “iPad Mini”. With Bloomberg, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York times reporting that Apple has plans to release a smaller iPad (between 7-8 inches) later this year, it seems like the possibility of this happening is greater than ever. Despite Steve Jobs himself throwing out the idea of having Apple release a smaller tablet, consumers seem to be clamoring for such a device from Apple. For those who simply can not justify spending a minimum of $499 on a new iPad, the prospect of seeing a cheaper iPad on the market is exciting despite the iPad having a significantly smaller form factor.
If you don’t currently own an iPad, why not? I can only answer for myself: it’s simply too expensive for what I would use it for. The convenience of using an iPad for web browsing is great. I would rather use an iPad than my trusty old MacBook to browse the interwebs, but $499 plus tax is too high a cost to justify putting my MacBook aside in favor of an iPad. With a seemingly high barrier to entry, the iPad seems to shoot itself in the foot. But if you think about it, Apple’s products have historically been expensive. It’s known that when you purchase an Apple product you will be paying substantially more money in trade for a more reliable, sexy, and superior operating system (yep, I said superior but that’s just my humble opinion). That’s what makes Apple the company that they are. High cost = better quality.
I myself would say that if Apple were to release a smaller, cheaper iPad this year, I’m in. An iPad for $299? Yes sir! Sign me up. If Apple does do this, this would be the biggest step in invading the homes and businesses around the world since the introduction of the iPod. Apple’s stock is already pricey, but if you have the money to invest, I urge you, put your money on Apple before they release the Mini iPad.
Whether you own a new iPad, an iPad 2, or an original iPad, you know where to go to get it fixed if harm should befall your lovely device. iPad repair is one of our many specialties. And believe you me, when the iPad Mini comes out, we will be the first to offer repairs on it.
