    98% of repairs are carried out the day they arrive and are sent out that afternoon by next day delivery. If there is any delay we will let you know but generally most parts are in stock
  • Do you need my passcode or iCloud details?
    We do need to test parts after repair so it is helpful if you can remove the passcode and icloud account from the device before sending it i off to us, so we can carry out essential post- repair tests on your unit.
  • Do you repair water damaged iPads?
    Yes! We will be able to diagnose any fault on any iPad. If you are unsure of the faults then just choose the diagnostic option on our website and we will be in touch the day we receive your iPad and let you know the repairs it will need.
  • My iPad has a broken screen but also dented areas in the corners of the rear case- what shall I do?
    Normally we can gently file out the corners to allow a new screen to sit in the unit and save on repairs costs for you. If this is not possible then we will be in touch to recommend a rear case replacement.
  • Loads of things are wrong with my iPad, what should I do?
    Don’t worry, just give us a call or drop us an email and we will assist you. You can choose our £20 diagnostic option and we will give it a thorough diagnostic test and let you know what it will need.

    We have been in business for 12 years and have, through our first website Ukipodrepairs.co.uk, fixed more iPods, iPhone and IPads than any other company which is why some of the UK’s biggest insurance and corporate companies also choose us for their repairs.
