  • EXCLUSIVE - iPad 3 Back Housing

    Side by side view of iPad 2 and iPad 3 back housings.

    RepairLabs is exclusively able to confirm some changes in the iPad 3, thanks to industry insiders in China. Pictured above is the new iPad 3 back housing, juxtaposed with the current back of the iPad 2. You can see that there are several subtle differences, and together with our techs, we are able to tell you just what to expect when Apple announces the iPad 3. We looked at the pieces closely, and below you can find our conclusions on what the obvious differences might mean, and how close some of the speculation has been.

    A. You can see here that the mounts for the logic board are very different, which means the logic board shape will be different allowing for . . . .

    B. More battery. The width of where the logic board sits on the iPad 2 appears much larger than that of the iPad 3. We have long heard that the iPad 3 was going to provide longer battery life, and this back housing seems to support that.

    C. The camera is different. It is hard to make a judgment just by looking at the casing, but what we can expect is a different camera on the iPad 3 than what we had on the 2.

    D. LCD will be different than what we have had before. Whether or not it will be the super screen we have seen reported will have to wait. But the different mounting does mean that the LCD has been redesigned at the very least.

    The LCD is probably what most of us are eagerly awaiting, especially with some of the reports of the upgraded part. However, our insiders tell us that so far the screen is not out there yet. That could mean that the finished product has not been signed off or that it is being kept top secret.

    Our source also told us that the housing itself did not seem thicker on the iPad 3 than it does on the 2. There have been a lot of reports that said the iPad 3 would be a millimeter or two thicker than the 2, and according to our source, that could be false. It is a little bit hard to conclude without measuring both with screens in place, however.

    Whatever the case may be, this back housing provides an interesting look into the changes we can expect when the iPad 3 is officially announced.

  • Proper Water Damage Care

    We know you hate it when your phone slips out of your fingers and into that puddle of water.  Or when you forget it in your pocket and it goes through the washer.  There is nothing worse for your device than water.  Our water damage repair specialists have an excellent reputation of restoring soaked devices, but not every device can be saved.  A lot of it comes down to what you do right after the device gets wet.

    Should you accidentally drench your favorite device, there are a few steps that will help minimize the damage.

    1. Don't attempt to turn the device on.  If it's miraculously still on, turn it off.  Continuing to use your iPhone or iPad after it's had water damage will cause more problems than a few days' use is worth.
    2. If you can, remove the battery.  Don't pry open your iPhone or iPad unless you're experienced, but removing the battery will prevent a lot of corrosion.
    3. If you dropped your device in chlorinated or salt water, try putting it in an alcohol bath. (Rubbing alcohol, scotch won't help you here)  This will help draw out the worst of those particles that can cause a lot of problems.
    4. Send it to an iPhone repair specialist right away.  Waiting to send off your device will only give that water more time to seep into the vital parts of your iDevice, giving it time to corrode valuable connections.  One tip our top water damage specialist gives is putting your device in front of a fan before you package it up.  It won't dry it out or solve your problems, but it can help minimize the damage.

    Following these easy steps will help cut down on your device's damage and might end up saving your favorite toy.

You can even log in with your Facebook account so you can get help from those that don't use the app. Fleetly provides a bit of negative motivation, letting you know when you've lost training points and helping you build them back up.

  • The Truth about iPhone and iPad Water Damage

    Your iPhone and/or iPad probably have a very important role in your life. You take it with you wherever you go and rely on it for staying in touch, staying productive and staying current on things that matter to you. But then the day comes when you make that fatal mistake - your iPhone and/or iPad gets exposed to liquid and stops working.

    Now you start to panic. Your dear little Apple gadget that was a source of happiness and pride just moments ago is now a waterlogged brick of nothing. Immediately you consult your Apple warranty for help. Unfortunately, this will get you nowhere.

    Your iPhone or iPad comes equipped with liquid sensors inside that will tell any technician whether or not the device has come in contact with liquid. If this is the case, you are out of luck with Apple. They will not cover water-damaged devices with their warranty. But you don't want to spend another few hundred bucks on a replacement. What do you do next?

    Naturally you do what the rest of the tech-savvy world does at this point – consult the Internet!

    There are many articles and videos on the Web that attempt to give you helpful advice on curing your water damage problem. Some will tell you to immerse it in a bag of rice to dry it out for a couple days. Or you could put it into a plastic bag with silica packets and see if that does the trick. Some will say you can put it into a hearing aid dryer for a few hours.

    So now you’ve done as the Internet has advised to try and dry out your device, but it is still giving you problems. You turn it on and it works for a while, but when the battery life gets to a certain point it gives you problems again. Now what? You still don’t want to spend the hundreds of dollars on a replacement. Meanwhile you are losing time.

    The conclusion that everyone in this situation comes to is eventually the same – get a new device or have it repaired by professionals. That’s where Repair Labs comes in.

    Repair Labs has fixed water-damaged iPhones and iPads for our customers nationwide. People who thought that they would never get another second of use out of their devices have trusted us with their water damage repair and we have delivered. If you have what seems like a hopeless water damaged iPhone or iPad, check out our repair services here.
