iPad Repair in 2021 | How to Decide: Repair vs. Replace

Should I seek iPad repair? Should I have my iPad replaced? If you are asking these questions it is definitely a tough place to be. Here are some keys to help you make the best choice.

 

1. What’s the Cost to Cost Ratio: iPad Repair to Replace

As a general rule, you don’t want to spend more than 50% of the replacement costs on repairs. When it comes to smart devices, the percentage drops. We recommend looking at somewhere between 33% and 40% of the replacement cost. If it’s more than that, the repair may not be worth it.

If your iPad is no longer under warranty, it can be expensive to seek factory repair. A local repair shop is often much more cost-effective.

Consumer Repots found:

People who used independent repair shops were more satisfied with the repairs than those who used factory service, which is consistent with what we’ve found previously. And repairs cost less, too.

2. How Old is Your iPad

The second consideration for iPad repair is its age. After 5 years, you can start seeing performance issues. These problems can decrease the effectiveness of the device significantly.

If you heavily rely on apps for work or play, you know, every update to your apps increases their size. As your device is filled with pictures, apps, and documents it can decrease performance. An iOs expert can sometimes help you extend the longevity of your device. If you rely on apps heavily and their performance has declined on an older device, it may be time to replace it.

Another consideration of age is iOs compatibility issues. Eventually, older devices may become difficult to update. This can include the operating system and app compatibility or features. Evaluate your use of the device and the value of these ‘upgrades’.

While battery issues are usually a cost-effective repair, when you combine other issues of an aging device, it might be time to evaluate. A trusted iOs technician can advise regarding the best decision for you.

3. Is Your Device for Personal or Business Use?

There are people who have an iPad for 6 -8 years with no issues. Ultimately, it boils down to how you use your device.

If you run a small business and use your iPad to help run the business, lagging issues and slow response time equals money lost. That doesn’t mean your current machine can’t be optimized for performance and move the cost of a replacement down the road.

For those who mainly use their iPad for personal use, waiting to replace them can make financial sense. If you can make it a few more years because you mainly use your device for personal emails, pictures, and the occasional game, a repair often makes sense.

4. Do You Have a Trusted iPad Repair Expert to Talk to

If you have a friend or family member who is knowledgeable on smart devices, they can be a great resource. If not, the Fixishop is a trusted resource for our customers to help make these decisions.

iPhone and iPad Repair | Save Money and the World

The Fixi Shop helps Apple users to repair their iPad or iPhone rather than replacing them. The company, located in Fort Worth, is in support of Apple’s overall recycle and reuse program and is asking its customers to join in.

Recycling iDevices

Recycling makes our world a better place. In addition, Apple finds efficient ways to reuse and recycle electronic equipment, including iPhone, iPad, Mac or PC computers, and displays.

The Fixi Shop wants to do what it can for the environment while encouraging others to do the same. Older iPhones can contain numerous harmful chemicals including mercury, lead, and arsenic. It is vital that these phones be used or properly disassembled to prevent harm to the environment.

Apple is making great strides with the iPhone 12 to reduce chemicals and the iPhones overall carbon footprint. Nevertheless, it is still important to reuse and recycle to reduce waste in the environment.

It’s the little things that we do that can make a huge difference in our overall quality of life. As a result, recycling or reusing iPads, iPhones, and other gadgets can have a big impact.

When Apple owners team up with The Fixi Shop and recycle in support of Apple’s recycle and reuse program, their used equipment is disassembled, and key components that can be reused are removed.

As to why recycle, Pena said, glass and metal used on all iPads can be reprocessed for use in new products.

In addition, Pena noted, a majority of the plastics can be pelletized into raw secondary material.

“Our involvement in spreading the word about recycling iPads shows our commitment to minimizing the impact products have on the environment,” Pena said, before adding, “It offers you a way to dispose of your electronic equipment responsibly.”

While recycling is a great option when electronic equipment has become completely obsolete, repairs can prevent the question of “What happens with the waste?” for months or years.
