All iPads are under warranty from Apple for the first year after sale and AppleCare ($49) customers have an additional two years of service. After that, repairing an iPad is left to the customer. It can be done either at home (for those with the know-how and the confidence) or it can be done by professional.

Typical costs:

  • Apple offers out-of-warranty repair service[1] for customers owning 2nd, 3rd or 4th generation iPads or the iPad Mini. Apple charges $219-$299 for the service depending on the model. In addition, a $17 shipping fee could apply.
  • There are non-Apple technicians that offer repair services for iPads. Replacing a cracked screen costs $100-$200, depending on the model. For example, iHeart Repair offers glass-repairing service[2] for iPad Mini for $190 and 2nd-4th generation iPads for $140.
  • LCD and glass replacement can cost slightly more than replacing only cracked glass. Typically, LCD and glass replacement costs $150-$220, depending on the generation of the model.
What should be included:
  • Depending on the service provided and the vendor, a customer should typically expect an iPad to be returned in full functioning order with the customer's apps and documents accessible.
Additional costs:
  • For iPad owners with the know-how and the proper tools, there are replacement parts available through parts retailers. For example, iFixit[3] offers a variety of replacement parts for $10-$100, depending on the part.
Discounts:
  • Websites such as iFixit offer a variety of instructional videos[4] that provide detailed how-to guides for repairing various functions of the iPad.
Shopping for an ipad repair:
  • Apple provides answers to commonly asked questions about iPad repairs[5] . Before contacting a third-party repair service, check to see if the iPad is under warranty or can be repaired or replaced by Apple. Some repairs are free for items still under warranty.
  • CNET offers tips consumers should know before fixing their smart devices[6] .
