iPad Mini Battery Replacement

The iPad Mini may be fun-sized, but it’s still mighty and jam-packed full of power. If your iPad Mini no longer holds a charge like it once did, don’t panic. Your tablet’s not a goner! Try these battery troubleshooting tips to extend your tablet’s life or explore iPad Mini battery replacement options at your local CPR Cell Phone Repair store.

4 Signs of iPad Mini Battery Problems

It’s entirely normal for tablet batteries to hold their charge less effectively over time; however, if your iPad is in constant need of a charge, it may be time to consider iPad Mini battery replacement. Common signs of iPad Mini battery issues include:

  • Tablet won’t power on
  • Battery drains extremely quickly
  • iPad Mini shuts down even though your display shows there is still battery life left
  • Apple’s Battery Health feature notifies you that service is needed

If any of the above problems sound familiar, try the following troubleshooting tips or begin your search for iPad Mini battery repair services.

Troubleshooting a Dead iPad Mini Battery

Before opting for battery replacement, try extending your iPad Mini battery life with these power troubleshooting tips.

  • Enable Low Power Mode

Enable Low Power Mode when you’re on to go and don’t have access to a charge. Low Power Mode is Apple’s battery-saving feature that helps you to reduce the amount of battery you consume by limiting the capabilities of some of your iPad’s apps and features. This mode will remain on until you’re able to charge the iPad Mini to 80% or turn the tablet off entirely.

  • Check Battery Health

Apple rolled out an amazing Battery Health several years ago to help users understand batteries’ health inside their Apple devices’. If a battery requires replacement, Battery Health will show a notification saying it’s time for service. Check your iPad Mini battery health by going to Settings > Battery > Battery Health.

  • Check Apps Draining Battery

Another way to save battery life is by analyzing your app usage and determining which apps are draining the most battery. Apple makes it simple to assess battery usage by day when you navigate to Settings > Battery. If any apps stick out to you as using a significant amount of battery, begin monitoring your time on that app or disable location services for that app. Also, ensure you’re force closing all apps when not used to avoid background activity that may also lead to battery loss.

iPad Mini Screen Replacement – Know Your Options!

The iPad Mini screen replacement doesn’t always arise due to broken glass from a fall. iPad Mini LCD repair might be needed because of water, temperature, or even pressure damage. No matter what’s at fault, you want screen replacement fast so that you can keep enjoying your iPad Mini. Read on to learn about repair services and the option to DIY.

Replacing an iPad Mini Screen – How Much Does it Cost?

Once you’ve broken or damaged the screen of your iPad Mini, you need to get it fixed. There are several repair options no matter where you are located: in store, mail-in, and DIY. The first two services are offered by almost every repair shop, but the iPad Mini screen repair cost will vary, along with a few other details. Here’s our quick comparison of your options, including a DIY kit:

  • Apple Store:

    The first place to start for any Apple repair is to check if your product is covered under warranty. Unfortunately, if your iPad Mini screen cracked due accidental damage, it’s not covered under the Standard Apple One Year Warranty. If you invested in AppleCare+, two incidents of accidental damage are covered with a mere $49 service fee. However, Apple out-of-warranty screen repairs will cost either $299 or $199 plus shipping depending which iPad Mini model you own.

  • Cell Phone Repair Store:

    With same day repairs, quality parts, and highly trained staff, Cell Phone Repair offers the best in iPad Mini repair services for screens and other common iPad Mini issues.

  • iPad Mini Screen Replacement Kit for DIY:

    A simple piece of iPad Mini replacement glass will cost around $15 while a complete kit with glass and LCD, tools, and instruction could cost up to $100.

Avoiding Broken iPad Mini Glass

An iPad Mini is a big investment, whether it’s for yourself or your whole family. To get the most out of that investment, it’s important to avoid having to fix a broken screen or any other part of the device. Here are two ways to protect your current or newly repaired iPad Mini screen:

iPad Mini Case:

You’ve probably seen someone on the bus or at work with something that looks a little like a leather notebook until they open it and reveal a tablet inside. That’s a device case, specifically designed to house, transport, and protect the electronic within. When closed, nothing can scratch the surface (or screen). A device in a case has a better chance of surviving a fall undamaged, being spilled on, etc. It’s the first and best line of defense for an iPad Mini.

iPad Mini Screen Protector:

The second line of defense is screen-specific. A tempered glass screen adds an extra layer to the most sensitive part of the iPad Mini. It reduces scratches, dings, and even helps prevent more serious fracturing. In addition, some screen protectors can help shed water or reduce sun glare as well, thus enhancing your device.

If you’ve already broken the screen of your iPad Mini, you need fast and reliable repair. That’s where Cell Phone Repair comes in. There are other service options, but none are as fast and reliable as CPR. The service and any replacement parts are even guaranteed with a limited lifetime warranty.

That way, you can have peace of mind that your new iPad screen will last. You can even purchase an iPad Mini case or screen protector in a CPR store to further ensure that your device will continue giving you hours of entertainment and use in the future. Stop by a CPR location today!
