One of the most important features of an iPad mini is the battery. After all, without any power, your iPad mini won’t work. Unfortunately, while the battery will generally last you a long time, when it starts to fail, you tend to have a problem on your hands. This problem is due to the technical difficulty of an Ipad Mini Battery Replacement. Before rushing in and attempting to figure it out all on your own without any help, keep these commonly asked questions in mind:
Is Your iPad Battery Under Warranty?
Luckily, if your iPad is under the original warranty, or if you still have an active AppleCare extended warranty plan, Apple will perform an iPad mini battery replacement free of charge or with minimal fees. For a complete list of pricing for both out-of-warranty and AppleCare coverage costs, check out Apple Support Services.
Do I Have to Go to the Apple Store?
There are two main options for replacing your iPad mini battery, regardless of whether it is under warranty or not. Either you can choose an Apple Store, or you can choose another small electronics repair shop. However, it is important to remember that while there are numerous repair shops available (and often they are cheaper than Apple Store options), unless you use an authorized Apple repair service, you could end up causing more problems for yourself.
This complication is due to the fact that authorized providers and repair services are trained and approved to work with Apple devices. Allowing anyone unauthorized to make repairs on your device could void your warranty or even cause Apple to not help you with any future repairs or services (including if the repair/replacement goes wrong). However, taking your device to an authorized repair shop with a new battery in hand from iDemiGods is a smart choice. Not only will you know for a fact that your replacement battery comes from a reliable source, but, at an authorized repair shop, you will also get qualified technicians at a more reasonable price.
Can’t I Just Replace It Myself?
Unless you are really handy with repairs or are willing to risk damaging your iPad mini, it is usually advised to avoid replacing the battery yourself. While the overall costs are less, you will void your warranty (if it is still active), and Apple will not help if you run into any issues. However, given the fact that Apple stores can be pricey and a long wait, another great option is to purchase your iPad mini battery replacement from a trusted parts distributor such as iDemiGods.
IDemiGods has in stock iPad batteries that are sure to fit any generation iPad. At a great price, you can get a replacement iPad mini battery from a trusted parts distributor such as iDemiGods and have your old battery replaced at your nearest authorized repair servicer.
Is It Worth the Cost?
While there are plenty of options for replacing your iPad mini battery, you need to determine if the cost is worth it. Whenever making any repairs or replacing parts, you should always consider the cost of the fix versus the cost of getting an entirely new iPad mini. Sometimes it can be better to use the cost of the repair to go towards a new device than to go about fixing the old one, especially if the old one is well past its prime.
However, if your device is fairly new, but you happened to shorten the battery life by exposing it to extreme temperatures, for example, then it would be worth it to invest in replacing your battery and keeping your current device rather than buying a new one.
How Do I Get My iPad Mini Battery Replaced?
The exact method for getting your iPad mini battery replacement depends on the type of service or repair option you choose. However, the most common methods for repair are at an Apple Store, Apple Authorized Service Provider, or another small electronics repair center. If you choose to undertake it yourself, you’ll need to find a seller who sells the correct battery that matches your model.
