iPad Air Water Damage Repair

If you own an iPad Air, you likely take it with you nearly everywhere you go. Its super lightweight design and impressive battery life are the ultimate device for work, school, and play. Unfortunately, the one downside of the tablet being so portable is its susceptibility to liquid damage caused by spills, drops, and rain.

Is My Water Damaged iPad Air Ruined?

Just because your iPad Air went for a swim, doesn’t mean it’s done for. A majority of the time, iPads aren’t impacted by minor spills and rain; however, if your device was submerged in water, it will likely need serviced by a professional repair team.

How to Handle a Liquid Damaged iPad Air

While Apple’s iPad Air has some degree of water resistance, it’s not entirely waterproof. Over time, regular wear and tear impact the device’s ability to fight off water damage. If you think your tablet might be suffering from water damage, carefully follow these steps to minimize damage to the device.

Do the following if your iPad Air has water damage:

  • Turn off the tablet for at least 24 hours.
  • Remove your iPad case or any accessories.
  • Dry the iPad off with a microfiber cloth.
  • Prop your iPad up against a wall or something sturdy, ensuring the charging port is facing downward for any liquid to drain.

Avoid the following if your iPad Air has water damage:

  • Avoid touching any volume, power, or home buttons.
  • Don’t use the infamous rice trick.
  • Don’t heat the tablet with a hairdryer, microwave, or any other machine to get the liquid to dry.

iPad Air Battery Replacement

The iPad Air’s lightweight design and groundbreaking technologies make the device without a doubt one of the best tablet options for those who are always on the go. But over time, most tablet batteries drain more quickly than they once did due to wear and tear, charging cycles, and frequent use. If you’re beginning to notice signs of poor battery life, don’t give up on your device. With expert troubleshooting tips and iPad Air battery replacement services, if needed, CPR is here to help you extend the life of your tablet.

Signs of iPad Air Battery Problems

Over time, batteries inevitably hold their charge less effectively, but if you find yourself frequently in search of an iPad charger, it may be time to consider your options. Common signs of tablet battery issues include:

  • iPad won’t turn on at all
  • Battery drains quickly
  • iPad turns off even though display shows there is still battery left
  • Battery Health feature under Settings says service is needed

If you’re experiencing any of the above battery problems, consider troubleshooting options or battery replacement services.

How to Troubleshoot Battery Issues on an iPad Air

Before opting for an iPad Air battery repair, try the following troubleshooting tips in an effort to squeeze every last bit of battery life out of your tablet.

  • Enable Low Power Mode

When you’re on the go without a charger and need to extend the life of your iPad Air, try enabling Low Power Mode. This battery saving feature reduces the amount of battery your iPad consumes until you’re able to charge it to 80% or turn the device off. This setting limits the capabilities of some features and apps to save battery life.

  • Check Battery Health

In recent years, Apple rolled out a Battery Health feature that allows users to assess the health of their Apple devices’ batteries easily. If a battery is past its prime, a notification will appear under Battery Health suggesting it’s time for service. To navigate to this setting, go to Settings > Battery > Battery Health.

  • Check Apps Draining Battery

Another great way to extend the life of your battery is assessing the apps that drain your battery significantly. To check which apps are the biggest battery suckers, navigate to Settings > Battery. Then, tap on the columns in the calendar to see which apps used the most battery during that period of time. In addition to limiting time in those apps, be sure that you force close all of your apps regularly to avoid background activity.

iPad Air Screen Replacement: What are my options?

With its thin, lightweight design, those on-the-go quickly adopted the iPad Air. With the ability to easily tote the tablet from point A to point B, it’s no wonder the Apple iPad Air is prone to wear and tear, especially cracked screens. If a shattered screen is preventing you from enjoying all the great features your iPad Air has to offer, you’ve come to the right place! CPR is here to offer you everything from tips to prevent screen damage to a step-by-step iPad Air screen replacement guide.

Tips to Prevent iPad Air Screen Damage

Whether you own the original iPad Air, iPair Air 2, or the third or fourth generation, the best way to prevent iPad Air screen damage is to be proactive. Protecting your iPad Air is inexpensive and easy with accessories such as cases, tempered glass, and sleeves. Learn more about protection for your iPad Air below.

  • iPad Air Cases: There are a number of durable iPad Air cases on the market that can prevent cracked screens and broken LCD on your iPad. Be sure to look for a case that is dust, water, and shock-resistant. The experts at CPR recommend iPad Air cases by Speck, OtterBox, UAG, and LifeProof.

By equipping your tablet with the necessary protection, you can significantly reduce your chances of needing an iPad Air screen replacement.

How to Troubleshoot a Broken iPad Air Screen

Unfortunately, the only solution to fixing a cracked iPad Air display is replacing the screen, but if your screen is causing other issues like glitching, flickering, or going completely blank, try the following troubleshooting tips in an effort to remediate the issue.

Blank Screen Issue on 3rd Generation of iPad Air

If your iPad Air flickers and then goes entirely blank, it may be impacted by a well-known issue that affected a limited number of 3rd generation iPad Air devices. Fortunately, Apple has put together a service program to fix impacted tablets free of charge. Contact Apple Support for details on this problem if you think your tablet may be affected.

Cracked iPad Screen Protector

It’s extremely common for customers to visit CPR thinking that their iPad Air screen is shattered, when in fact, it’s just their screen protector. Before taking your iPad in for repair, be sure to try removing the screen protector in the off chance that the tempered glass is cracked rather than your tablet’s display.

Flickering iPad Screen

If your iPad screen is flickering, several things could be causing the issue. To begin, try restarting your iPad and checking for software updates. If these steps don’t work, take note if the flickering occurs when using a specific app. If it is, the app may have a bug, need to be updated, or simply require a force quit.

iPad Air Screen Repair Costs

iPad Air screen repairs can be an expensive, timely service. Weigh your options to ensure you decide on the service with the best price and fastest service. The cost will vary significantly based on which generation of iPad Air you own, where you go for repair, and the quality of the replacement screen.

If you have Apple Care on your tablet, contact Apple Support for information on screen replacements. Unfortunately, getting your screen replaced through Apple typically requires you to ship your tablet to their repair center, which leaves you without your device for at least several days.

Alternatively, you can visit a local iPad repair shop like CPR Cell Phone Repair. With hundreds of locations worldwide, there’s bound to be a store near you. At CPR, we specialize in screen replacement on a wide variety of Apple phones and tablets, enabling us to turn around most iPad Air repairs the same day they’re brought in.
