To keep your iPad battery in perfect condition, make sure that you always use the latest version of iPadOS, avoid using your tablet in extreme temperatures, and charge the battery when it's between 20% and 80% instead of filling it up to full or letting it drop down to zero.

iPad Pro repair
The iPad Pro is one of the best devices Apple has to offer, with the latest models offering upgrades like a Liquid Retina XDR display and Apple's own M chips. However, even these high-end tablets can break sometimes. If your iPad Pro won't turn on, has a cracked screen, or suffers from any other problems, Simply Fixable can help you get it back in perfect shape for just $146 on average.

iPad Air repair
The iPad Air marks a good in-between point between the standard iPad and the iPad Pro. While overall solid, the iPad Air can encounter the same issues that sometimes plague other iPads, be it charging problems or low battery life. Repairing an iPad Air at Simply Fixable is even cheaper than the iPad Pro, averaging just $115.
iPad Mini repair
Apple's iPad mini is a popular choice for casual users who don't want a bulky tablet. However, its compact size means that it gets carried around a lot, and that makes it prone to fall damage. Don't worry if your iPad mini is acting up—Simply Fixable's partners can help you fix it in around 45 minutes for just $90 on average.
Common iPad problems That Could Be Fixed With Us
Apple makes iPads with portability in mind, so they're generally able to withstand quite a bit of damage before breaking. However, problems can occur sometimes, and here are some of the most common ones you might run into as an iPad owner.
Broken iPad screen
This is perhaps one of the most common issues that happens to iPads all over the world—a cracked or broken screen, often caused by fall damage. Our partners have years of replacing iPad screens, so it's a quick and affordable fix.
How to prevent your iPad screen from breaking?
Be careful when you transport the tablet and always make sure to buy an extra tempered glass protector to stick on top of the screen.
If your iPad won't turn on, there might be several reasons for that, ranging from hardware and software issues to a dead battery. At Simply Fixable partner stores, skilled technicians will look into the problem and may perform repairs such as battery replacement or a full iPad reset.
How to make sure your iPad doesn't refuse to turn on?
Keep your iPad up-to-date with the latest iPadOS updates from Apple, don't allow it to run out of battery, and avoid installing third-party apps from unknown sources.
It's frustrating when your iPad won't charge, be it due to battery issues or a faulty charging port. To repair your device, our experts will examine the battery and the ports and replace the part that's malfunctioning.
How to stop your iPad from refusing to charge?
Don't allow your device to run out of battery completely, as it uses a lithium-ion battery, and those are best kept at around 20% to 80% at all times.
Broken iPad charging port
The charging port on your iPad can break due to heavy usage or being exposed to too much dust or debris. This problem can go away easily if you contact a reputable repair service and request a charging port replacement.
How to prevent your iPad charging port from breaking?
Only use official accessories made by Apple, such as the original Lightning cable and power adapter, and clean your charging port every so often using soft, dry, lint-free cloth, as per Apple's own guidelines.
If your iPad overheats, it might turn itself off to prevent further damage. When you take it in for repairs, our technicians will verify whether the problem lies in hardware or software glitches.
How to prevent your iPad from overheating?
Avoid heavy use (such as games and videos) of your tablet when you're out in hot weather and don't leave it out in the sun.
An iPad black screen is often referred to as a "black screen of death," and it can be caused by third-party apps, corrupt firmware, or display issues, among other things. This calls for an in-depth diagnosis from an experienced technician who will be able to find the root cause of the problem and then fix it.
How to prevent your iPad from encountering black screens?
Make sure to only install apps found in the App Store and keep your iPad updated with the latest version of iPadOS.
iPad won’t turn off
If your iPad refuses to turn off, it's probably dealing with software errors, although it might also be having issues with its internal components. At Simply Fixable partner stores, our experts will rule out software glitches before moving on to hardware repairs and replacements.
How to stop your iPad from refusing to turn off?
Try not to overload your iPad with too many apps all at once, as it might eventually freeze and refuse to turn off as it tries to work its way through these tasks.
As your iPad ages, its battery health will decline with each charge cycle, so over time, you may notice that its battery drains quickly. At that point, it's best to look into iPad battery replacement in your area.
How to prevent your iPad battery from draining too quickly?
Avoid using your iPad in extreme temperatures, keep your iPad up to date, and follow Apple's guidelines on optimizing your settings.
iPad water damage
Unlike iPhones, iPads are usually not waterproof or water-resistant, so water damage can occur pretty easily. If this happens to you, technicians at our partner stores will verify whether your tablet sustained any internal damage and if it can be repaired.
How to stop water damage from affecting your iPad?
As these devices weren't made to sustain any type of water damage, your best bet is not to use them near any sources of water. A protective case can help, too.
iPad freezing and glitching
It's frustrating if your iPad keeps glitching or freezing up, but fortunately, software is usually the cause. As part of your repairs, technicians will most likely update and restart your iPad as well as advise you if there are any apps you shouldn't be using.
How to prevent your iPad from experiencing software freezes?
Monitor your iPad storage levels to make sure it's not running out of space or memory, keep all your apps up-to-date, and download the latest versions of iPadOS when they become available.
Who is Simply Fixable?

Our mission is to make it easy and affordable for people to get their mobile devices repaired. Our selection ensures everyone has access to high-quality and affordable device repair services across the USA.
How much does it cost to repair an iPad?
Fixing an iPad can have varying costs based on the extent of the repairs, and a full screen replacement is bound to cost more than addressing a minor software glitch. However, if you're looking for affordable and trustworthy iPad repairs in your area, Simply Fixable only charges $104 on average for fixing your tablet.
The exact type of repair will play a deciding factor in how much it will cost you to get your device up and running. Replacing your iPad's screen costs just $173 on average at Simply Fixable, although the final quote depends on the tablet model. Battery replacement is cheaper, averaging $120, and fixing a broken charging port only costs $94 on average.
How long does it take to repair an iPad?
Repairing an iPad takes around 2 hours on average, but the service could take longer if your tablet is severely damaged. Experienced technicians will be able to give you an estimate as to how long it'll take for your iPad to be ready for pickup.
Is it worth repairing an iPad?
Repairing your iPad is often worth it, but it depends on what exactly is wrong with the tablet. If the device is old or damaged beyond saving, such as from a fall or an internal failure, it might be cheaper to buy a new iPad. However, a cracked screen or battery port can easily be replaced, and software issues are often a quick fix. In most cases, your best bet is to contact a repair store in your area and see how much the repairs would cost you, as iPads themselves can cost upwards of $1,000 for the latest models.
Is it worth fixing a cracked iPad screen?
Getting your iPad screen fixed is usually worth it. It's not just about the comfort of use and being able to see everything, but also about safety, as pieces of chipped glass may start coming off eventually. As long as the screen replacement is cheaper than buying a new iPad (and it almost always is), the repairs will be worth the money.
How do you know if your iPad is damaged?
Certain signs of damage might be cause for concern, so if anything seems to be wrong with your iPad, it's worth investigating. First, check your tablet for signs of external damage, such as cracks in the screen, a bent or dented chassis, or broken buttons or ports. You might also encounter problems with an unresponsive touchscreen as well as display and audio issues. Lastly, consider problems with the hardware and software, such as your iPad refusing to turn on, glitching out, or underperforming.
Can you fix an iPad by yourself?
If you're tech-savvy, you might be tempted to go down the DIY route and fix your iPad by yourself. This can be a viable solution if you're feeling confident, but it could potentially void your warranty, ending up a lot more costly than simply using a reliable repair service provider.
We're here to help if you want to try to fix your iPad at home. Check out our tutorials on replacing your iPad screen, battery replacement, and installing new iPad glass.
Should you buy a new iPad or get it repaired?
Making the choice between repairing your iPad and buying a new one can be challenging. Things like budget, time, and convenience all play a part. The final decision comes down to whether the benefits of buying a new device will outweigh the affordable and easy solution of visiting a repair store.
If you're using an older iPad or it's been severely damaged, it often makes more sense to just buy a new one. Cheap iPads can cost as little as $250, so chances are that you'll actually save money by doing this. However, in most cases, getting a quote from a repair store should be your logical first step. You might be surprised how cheap it is to fix your iPad.
What type of iPad repair services exist?
iPad repair service options include mail-in, local repair stores, and so-called come-to-you repairs. The benefit of mail-in repairs is that you can just send your iPad and have it returned to you without needing to go anywhere; the downside, however, is that it can get lost or damaged in the mail. Come-to-you repairs involve a technician coming to your doorstep, and while convenient, they're also pricey.
Visiting a reputable iPad repair store in your area combines the benefits of both. It's convenient and affordable, although the quality and price can vary between locations, which is why we only team up with trustworthy partners at Simply Fixable.
How to choose the right repair store for your iPad repair?
To pick a store you can trust, start by researching iPad repair locations in your local area. Read reviews of the repair store in question and contact them for a quote. Your best bet is to focus on repair stores that use reliable parts, employ experienced technicians, and offer competitive pricing. Simply Fixable can help you find the repair store that suits your needs and your budget.

*Data in the given table is based on Simply Fixable's market research and the official Apple website
If you want to repair your iPad directly through Apple, be aware that it'll cost $225 on average. If you're covered by the Apple Care+ plan, this cost might be lower, so if your device is under warranty or you have an active Apple Care+ subscription, this might be your best bet. You'll have to visit an Apple Store and let the staff give you a quote.
Instead of searching for an Apple location in your vicinity, you can count on us. At Simply Fixable, we only work with exceptional repair stores that can provide you with high-quality repairs in your local area. With over 2,000 partner stores all across the United States, we're able to guide you toward a place that's both convenient and trustworthy.
How are partner stores selected at Simply Fixable?
We have a strict vetting process that helps us ensure that we're only working with top-of-the-line repair stores. Before we even choose to partner with a particular store, we scan it to make sure that it meets our requirements. The store needs to have a minimum customer satisfaction rating of 90% and be able to meet the demands of our clients, including having plenty of trained staff on hand to diagnose issues and carry out repairs.
Our partners all provide a minimum of 90 days of warranty post-repair, employ expert technicians who specialize in iPads and other Apple devices, and are easy to make appointments with. Most of all, they're inexpensive, and they're located all over the United States, making sure that you never have to travel far to get your iPad fixed.
Aside from being selective when we choose our partners, we make sure that they have the right guidelines to offer streamlined repairs at every location. Our guidelines, which our partners all adhere to, include tips on how to perform professional repairs, which tools to use, and how to make sure that customer satisfaction always comes first.
How are parts that are used during your repair sourced?
Thanks to our thorough inspections, we're confident that all of our partners only use top-notch parts that meet industry standards. We run quality control checks to make sure that the parts come from trustworthy sources, and also to ensure that every repair store is prepared to fix various iPad models.
How to prepare your iPad for repair?
No matter the kind of repair, it's best to prepare your iPad for it and make sure you'll avoid data loss. Always back up your data using iCloud or another cloud service, and if possible, charge it up so that the technician can diagnose it immediately.
How long would the iPad last after it’s repaired?
Once your iPad is repaired at a reputable service, it can last for a long time. When looked after properly, an iPad can last for 5 to 7 years before needing to be replaced. Of course, depending on your usage and the reason behind the repairs, this average lifespan might be shorter.
Tips to keep your iPad running smoothly and avoid problems
If you want your iPad to serve you well for years, it's always easier to maintain it than repair it. Here are some tips to help you ensure you can enjoy your tablet for many years to come.
Protect your iPad from external damage
Keep your iPad from sustaining fall damage, and make sure never to use it near water sources or in hot temperatures, as per Apple's guidelines.
Update your iPad regularly
Make sure to download the latest versions of iPadOS as soon as they become available by following this Apple guide.
Never use apps from unknown sources
To keep your iPad safe from malware and software issues, only download apps that are available on the official App Store and have high ratings.
Backup your data frequently
Some iPad problems require a full reset, meaning data loss, so make sure to prevent that from happening by always backing up your data.
