When the iPad was released on April 3rd, we were there. We were the first company to teardown the iPad and begin offering replacement parts and repair service.
Our iPad Parts store has all of the internal components needed for self repair. We’ll be carrying all of the parts for the Wi-Fi and 3G models. ( Model #s A1219 and A1337)
For those not up to self repair, we have a Send-In service for iPad Service. The cost for the service is $30 labor + part cost.
Below are some pictures of our iPad Repair done on April 3rd.

With the new iPad just being announced, we’re already getting a lot of questions about whether or not we’ll repair them and carry iPad parts when they come out.
No one yet knows the complexities of this device or how user serviceable it will be. That said, from first glance the device appears to be a blown up iPod Touch. If that’s the case, we’d assume the same components will be replaceable for the iPad as for the iPod Touch, and we assume that in the minimum it will have an LCD Display and a digitizer that would be end user replaceable.
So to answer the question, most likely we will offer iPad parts and iPad repair, though it’s really too early to tell any specifics.
We’ll find out for sure in 59 days when we do an iPad take apart repair guide.
