Quality of components.
Not all iPad components are created equally. When we first started iPad repairs, Apple would make genuine parts available for companies like ours to carry out repairs. But as they have moved more towards pushing people towards replacing damaged devices, rather than repairing them, they have restricted the availability of some genuine Apple parts. Due to our history of our iPad repair service we have been able to build relationships with the people who make the screens and we are able to fit high quality components in all of our repairs. Put simply, we don't use cheap screens that we've bought from eBay and we didn't learn our craft from watching YouTube videos.
SimplyFixIt uses Apple Certified Technicians to carry out repairs on Apple devices, including the iPad 5th Generation. There isn't anyone else in Edinburgh or Glasgow who uses technicians who have been certified by Apple. We back that up with a 3-month warranty on all iPad 5th Generation repairs.
There are actually 2 screens on your iPad. The lower screen controls the images that appear, while the top screen is the glass front. This top screen also controls the "touch" capabilities. If your iPad doesn't recognise your finger swiping, then it could be that your top screen has become faulty or broken. The lower screen is called the LCD, while the top screen is called the digitiser.
iPad Digitiser Repair
Cracked iPad glass? Did it fall and get cracks that look like a spider web? The graphics look fine, just the top glass is shattered? Maybe the screen is not responding to your touch? The top glass screen of the iPad is sometimes called the digitiser (or digitizer for our American friends). This screen controls the touch capability of the iPad and protects the lower screen, which shows the graphics. It's possible for the top digitiser screen to be smashed and the graphics to look fine underneath. We will remove the smashed screen and replace it with a new screen so it looks as good as new.
The digitiser is a very important part of your iPad. If the digitiser cracks or breaks, the functionality of the iPad is affected and it is difficult to use the iPad. If you have a cracked iPad screen and you are in Edinburgh or Glasgow, then you can pop into any of our repair centres for a fast service. If you are outside of Edinburgh or Glasgow, then we can also help. We fix hundreds of iPads each week for people all over the UK.
Broken iPad Digitiser Symptoms:
- iPad glass cracked
- Digitiser not responding to your finger swipes
- Top glass smashed or shattered
- The on-screen keyboard does not work
- Glass is scratched
*Please note that if the back case of your iPad is bent, even slightly, there may be a chance that the new screen may not fit flush in the iPad. In some cases, the aluminium back case can be re-formed to fit the glass. We normally do that at no extra charge, but it will never be completely smooth as the original pre-smash condition. In very rare cases the back case may need to be replaced as well. Our technicians will notify you if this is the case, because it will add some cost to the repair.
iPad LCD Repair
The LCD screen on the iPad is the lower screen. It displays the graphics. It's generally a very reliable part, but can break from a fall, or from liquid getting into your iPad. If you see coloured lines, grey lines, white spots, dead pixels on the screen or ff the display is completely white, flickering or bleeding, no back-light it has to be replaced. The lower LCD screen on your iPad is normally protected from knocks by the top glass screen, but even still it can break. Sometimes it starts with graphics corruption, which gradually gets worse. Sometimes it is a totally white screen.
Broken iPad LCD (Lower Screen) Symptoms:
- Display screen cracked or broken
- LCD "bleeding" or "black ink stain"
- Display blank or very dark
- LCD flickering
- Vertical lines visible on your screen
- Dead pixels on display
- Graphics corruption, e.g. coloured marks appearing randomly

Can you change the battery in an iPad 5th Generation?
The way that all batteries work, not just iPad batteries, is that over time they lose their capacity. in most cases, if you charge a battery fully 500 times, the difference in performance will be very noticeable. 500 charges on a tablet like an iPad are probably done in around 2–3 years, so if your iPad 5th Generation is over 2 years old, you will see much better performance with a new battery. SimplyFixIt is cheaper than Apple for all iPad battery replacements. We also offer discounts if you are replacing the battery during a screen repair.
