Apple iPads aren't cheap, and neither is getting one's screen repaired. Apple's one-year warranty doesn't cover accidental damage, so unless your iPad's screen has a hairline crack due to defective glass (and no obvious sign of drop impact), get ready to bust out your credit card.

Here's everything you need to know about getting an Apple iPad screen fixed.

Have Apple fix it

Getting your screen replaced by Apple is pretty cheap -- if you have AppleCare.

Have a third party fix it

There are other places to get your iPad screen fixed, but choosing a non-Apple repair shop will void your warranty. And yes, Apple can tell if a non-Apple employee has opened up your iPad. But if you're out of warranty anyway, there's a number of third-party Apple repair places that can fix your iPad's shattered screen.

Dale Jr.'s race ends early with broken transmission

  Dale Jr.'s race ends early with broken transmission Dale Earnhrdt Jr. has problems shifting in his No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet for the second day in a row.After completing Stage 1 of the Pocono 400 at Pocono Raceway, Earnhardt began Stage 2, and when he did, he missed a shift on the 3,740-foot-long frontstretch. Earnhardt attempted to shift from third to fourth gear, but instead got second gear.

Unfortunately the damage was done but we love to DIY and not much holds us back. So instead of buying a new iPad or living with a broken screen , we decided to fix it ourselves! So today, I am crazy excited to show you How to Fix a Broken iPad Screen .

When you're shopping around for a good repair company, there are a few questions you'll want to ask before handing over your device:

  • How much will it cost?

  • How long will it take?

  • What type of warranty do you offer?

  • Where do they get their replacement parts from?

Since the third-party company will be voiding your Apple warranty, you want to make sure they'll stand behind their work and parts -- the last thing you want is a crack-free but defective screen.

Local mom-and-pop computer repair stores (yes, they still exist) are often a good place to try for a third-party repair. Just check for reviews and get a solid quote up-front. We recently profiled a handful of independent computer shops in New York, many of which specialize in Apple repairs.

Apple pays off its future-of-computing promise with iPad Pro

  Apple pays off its future-of-computing promise with iPad Pro <p>After playing with the new iPad Pro 10.5" for a few days, I am convinced that it's fairly impossible to do a detailed review of it in its current state.</p>Not because there is some sort of flaw, but because it was clearly designed top to bottom as an empty vessel in which to pour iOS 11.

The screen isn't working and the device is stuck, and essentially unusable.

Don't do-it-yourself

You can find glass replacement kits and dense DIY tutorials online that show you how to fix your iPad screen yourself, but trust us, you don't want to do this yourself.

Replacing the glass is much more difficult than replacing the entire touchscreen, because you will need to separate the glass from the touchscreen and then glue the new piece of glass onto the old touchscreen. That's something you should leave to professionals.

If you really want to give it a shot, keep in mind that a touchscreen replacement kit, including the LCD screen and digitizer, can cost between $30 and $400, depending on which components you need and the model. We haven't tested these replacement parts ourselves and do not recommend it.

Plus, with the DIY approach, you will void your warranty and have nobody but yourself to blame if something goes wrong. Replacing the screen will cost you as much, if not more, than simply taking your device to the Apple store.

Deal with it

If you're short on cash, or are simply dealing with a small crack, you can also try to make the best of what you got.

It won't look pretty, but you don't need to replace your screen when it cracks. If the cracks are around the edges of the screen and don't interfere with actually using the phone, or if you have one or two large cracks that run across the screen, a glass screen protector such as Zagg's glass screen protector ($30-$50) so you don't cut your fingers as you swipe.

(If your screen is absolutely shattered, a glass screen protector will keep you from getting cut, but your iPad may still be unusable.)

How to Install the iOS 11 Public Beta (If You Dare) .
Apple just launched the iOS 11 public beta for the whole world to try, and holy heck, don’t get too excited yet. Obviously, your iPhone or iPad will be cooler than all your friends’ are if you’re running the new software before any of them. There will be consequences, though. First off, not all Apple devices will run iOS 11. You’ll need an iPhone 5s or newer, a 5th generation iPad or newer, an iPad Mini 2 or newer, or an iPad Air (1 or 2). You can also install iOS 11 on a 6th generation iPod Touch, if that’s your jam. (Check out a full list of compatible devices here.)Next, you’ll definitely want to back up your old device.
