Chances are that if you are not living as a technological recluse and you are a fan of Apple products, you most likely own an iPad tablet. And if you have little kids whom you let use said iPad tablet, chances are pretty high that the iPad s glass will become cracked (most likely from being dropped), or the kids might spill food and drinks on the iPad which will seep into the iPad body. When that happens and you don t have a warranty on said iPad, you can do an iPadglass repair yourself; but that doesn t always work for the faint of heart. The best thing to do in this case is to bring your iPad to an iPad repair professional. According to Yelp, within the cities of San Mateo, Daly City, South San Francisco, Millbrae, and Redwood City, the company iPhone Repairing (located in Daly City) is the best company around for your iPadglass repair.
The repair techs at iPhone Repairing are specially trained to repair all Apple devices, including your iPad. To begin your iPad glass repair, the iPhone Repairing tech will first use a special hot air tool to heat the edges of the iPad. This melts and loosens the adhesive that holds the iPad glass to the body of the iPad. Once heated, the tech will then use a special metal wedge to pry the glass away from the iPad body, very carefully; so as to not further damage the iPad. This is one of the main reasons you want to use an iPhone Repairing tech to do the iPad glass repair instead of trying to do the repair yourself. If you are not careful or knowledgeable enough, there are very high chances you may damage the iPad further, and perhaps irreversibly.
Once the iPad glass is off, the tech will then disengage all cables and antennas that connect the glass to the logic board of the iPad and place the glass next to the iPad like the page of a book. The tech will then use tiny, specialized Phillips screwdrivers to remove the screws that hold the iPad s LCD in place. Then, very carefully and using very particular angles of the LCD, the tech will remove the LCD and also place it aside like the page of a book and then remove all display cables. The LCD is the part of the iPad that reads and preforms the functions of your touching of the iPad glass. Once removed, the tech will continue your iPadglass repair by detaching the battery and several other connectors.
Once all cables, connectors, the battery, and the home button have become detached, the tech can finally completely remove the damaged glass apart from the iPad body.
Now that the glass has been fully detached and several other parts have also been removed, the iPhone Repairing tech will use a special air blowing tool to rid the iPad of any dust or gunk (sticky residue left over from when your kids had spilled food or beverages on the iPad) that could have gotten in over time. And now, to finish the iPad glass repair, the iPhone Repairing tech will reassemble the iPad in the reverse order, except this time with a new glass or digitizer. He will reinstall the battery and reattach the cables. He will put the LCD back into the iPad body and screw it back into place so that it remains steady. He will reconnect the new glass to the last remaining cables and antennas and place them appropriately.
Once everything is properly attached, the absolute last step in the iPadglass repair is to carefully place new adhesive on to the walls of the iPad body so that they can hold the glass in place. Once the adhesive is in place, it is imperative that the tech place the glass onto the adhesive absolutely levelly. Once the adhesive connects the iPad body to the glass, it will be near impossible to adjust the placement of the glass without breaking the glass (which will result in having to start the entire iPadglass repair process all over again). Now that the glass has been correctly placed, it is only a matter of time, maybe an hour, before it is safe to use again.
Having completed the actual iPadglass repair, the tech will then place cork border holders around the edge of the iPad in order to hold the iPad body and glass together while the adhesive dries fully. As soon as the adhesive is dried, the iPhone Repairing tech will give you a call to let you know you can pick up your iPad. The entire iPad glass repair process takes less than 2 hours to complete and will cost you less than $80 (before tax). And now you have a practically brand new iPad to hand over to your kids to continue to play with and keep themselves busy; allowing you to have some quiet peace of mind.

Great pricing, extremely responsive business owner…I was heading to SF to run an errand, e-mailed Khan in the morning, dropped my iPad Mini with a shattered screen around 12p and he called at 1:15p to let me know it was ready for pick up! My iPad mini looked like new; except for the huge dent where I dropped it (which Khan smoothed out with a Dremel for no charge).I hope I don t have to have another screen replaced, but if I did I would use Khan again without question. Super convenient and best pricing around. What else could you ask for?!?"
