I promised you some exciting news and I will deliver. Remember when I posed the question of how long it will take before we see a new iPad in for repair? Well that question has been answered: 1 day! Yes, folks, it took just one day before we got an order in for a screen repair on the new iPad. I’m beside myself right now. We officially announced and released our new iPad repairs on Friday afternoon and the first order was placed on Saturday morning for cracked glass repair!! (Click image for hi-res).
Luckily for this customer we were here from DAY 1 offering repairs on the new iPad. No one else can claim this, just the friendly folks here at iResQ that truly offer what you want: a speedy, reliable, and affordable experience without all the nonsense. I’ll post another blog later on today with more pictures of the broken iPad and pictures of the new iPad repaired by one of our technicians. But first, let me give you one observation; the new iPad is pretty heavy compared to the iPad 2. It feels about the same weight as the original iPad. This means that if you drop your new iPad, it will more than likely have a greater chance of cracking.
If you find yourself in a situation that left you with a broken new iPad, this is the place to go. Here are our screen repair services for the new iPad Gen 3:
Remember, we’ll be adding more repair services for the Gen 3 iPad so keep on checking back.

We are officially ready to roll with repair services for the new iPad. We have the necessary parts to begin full service repairs on the new iPad from day one of its release on Friday. Yes, this Friday. Apple stores are reportedly opening the gates at 8AM on Friday morning to sell the new iPad to the masses that can’t wait a few hours later in the day to receive their iPad via FedEx. You got to love an Apple enthusiast camping out for days in front of an Apple Store to get their hands on the latest device. This actually conjures up memories of the man of the hour, our very own Nate Avenmarg who camped out all night in 2008 to get his hands on a brand new iPhone 3G. Early adopters. Love ’em.
With the new iPad all over the news, it’s easy to forget that Apple does have other products that they are developing. I have seen rumors of new 15″ MacBook Airs to come sometime in 2012. To me, this seems like the first step in the dissolution of the traditional MacBook or MacBook Pro. Eventually the MacBook Pro models may become MacBook Airs. Scary though, huh? Solid state hard drives are not cheap, having an expensive 250GB SSD in your MacBook Air won’t hold your massive 100GB iTune’s library and your 300GB worth of movies, documents, and applications. That’s what scares me. SSD drive prices are sure to drop in due time, I remember buying a 1gB thumb drive for $100 a while back, now the same thumb drives are promotional give-aways at trade shows. I guess I’ll just hang in there.
I still have my trusty old MacBook that has yet to give up on me (knock on wood). If I ever crack my MacBook screen, I know where to get it fixed. We can fix any cracked or broken MacBook or MacBook Pro screen for that matter.
