How to fix a cracked iPad Air 2 screen yourself in 10 minutes

By on December 18, 2014 at 4:20 PM.

There are few things that are more heartbreaking to a gadget fan than a cracked smartphone screen.

If you’re handy, however, and you can manage to source parts at a decent price, you can save some money by fixing your iPad yourself in about 10 minutes. More →
