As mentioned earlier today, we have been receiving quite a few broken 2012 iPads and we have more on the way. In my last blog post, I showed you one of the broken iPads. Well as promised we have the “after repair” shot to the right. Nic, one of our professional iPad techs, had the pleasure of working on this beauty. He got it done quick too!
We are seeing more new iPads come in than expected so we are stocking up on as many replacement glass screens/digitizers as we can in order to keep up with the crazy demand. Give us a call if you have any questions about your new iPad repair or if you don’t see a repair that you think you need.
In other iPad news, have you been keeping up with the whole over-heating issue that some users are experiencing with the new iPad? Apparently Apple stated that the new iPad operates within their heat specifications. This sounds like Apple sees no issue with this. As a matter of fact, that article mentions that this is only reported to happen to some users and under some specific circumstances. Maybe this is blowing up more than it should. It seems like no matter how great a product is, people are always going to find something to complain about.

Do you have a new iPad yet? Is it everything you expected it to be? Fast, elegant, hot….HOT!!! According to some reports that I spied on the interwebs today, some users of the new iPad are reporting that they are getting unusually hot during normal use and shutting down. At this point these are all rumors, but this is definitely worth mentioning as this does have some potentially huge implications.
It seems that nowadays Apple is hard pressed to release a new product without some sort of controversy; this reminds me of the iPhone 4’s “death grip” issue that caused iPhone 4s to substantially lose their signal if held a certain way. If the new iPad overheating issue is widespread enough and Apple can’t fix it with a simple software update, watch out. Who knows how they would solve this issue. Replacement units would be a huge ordeal to go through logistically, not to mention the inconvenience this would cause customers. This, however, is highly unlikely. Remember, Apple didn’t replace iPhone 4’s during the “death grip” issue. Instead, they released a software update changing the way the signal bars were to be calculated and offered customers free iPhone 4 bumpers that helped resolve the issue.
Here’s my guess, Apple releases a software update that resolves the issue. I have total confidence in Apple. One way or the other, the issue will be resolved.
By the way, we have had a gigantic weekend as far as iPad repairs go. I have some crazy news for you about it so check back later. You will be amazed at what I have to tell you.
