Remembering the exact date when you purchased your iPad is probably the last thing that is on your mind. That is until the device needs to be repaired and you need to know whether the damage is covered under your iPad warranty repair.
Believe it or not, the time of year when most iPad users seek repairs for their devices is in the winter. Although the device appears to be capable of withstanding extreme weather on the outside, components on the inside can still get hurt during the cold season. Depending on the model of iPad you have, your device may or may not have liquid sensors. The original iPads do have these sensors, and it is important to know that if the sensors are activated, your warranty may be voided.
What a Technician Will Do
The first thing a technician will do when you need an iPad warranty repair is to check for sensors. Once sensors are located, the technician will determine if the device has sustained water damage. If so, you have lost your warranty. Fortunately, if this happens to you, you can find a well-established repair shop that has certified technicians who are skilled in working on Apple products to repair your iPad for you. These services are affordable and less expensive than purchasing a replacement iPad.
Be Wary Of Sensors
Even if your device has sensors, these sensors may not be telling the complete story. An iPad that is left in cold temperatures for long periods of time and is exposed to extreme changes in temperature can affect the liquid contact sensors. The sensors can give a false positive and can void your warranty even if your device did not come into direct contact with any liquid. This false positive will not affect the functionality of your device, but it will affect how repairs to your device are completed.
During the colder months, taking simple precautions with your device can help your device work properly and avoid any issues with an iPad warranty repair. However, if the warranty is no longer valid, there are reputable repair shops that can repair your device correctly and with a quick turnaround.
