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

There are few things that are more heartbreaking to a gadget fan than a cracked smartphone screen. Gorilla Glass is incredibly strong, but it may never be strong enough to survive some of the nasty spills that smartphones often take. If there is one thing that’s even sadder than a cracked smartphone screen though, it’s probably a cracked tablet screen. For some reason, the larger scale makes it that much more heartbreaking.

If you have Apple’s iPad Air 2 and it recently became the victim of an unfortunate accident, you’ll need so cough up some serious money to get it fixed or replace it. 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 →

Apple has already taken one step to making iPads more interesting to businesses, and that’s launching special enterprise-focused iOS apps earlier this week, and the company is rumored to be working on an even bigger iPad for next year. But for now, Apple is looking at maximizing iPad sales this holiday season, which will likely be a new record for the company when it comes to quarterly earnings. More →
