Should I repair my iPad 3 (Screen & WiFi Antenna)
Sorry for the long post
My iPad 3 64gb Wifi+Cell (Indonesia only got the 3G model) is already 7 years old and had its screen replaced twice (or maybe 3 times I lost count). I still use it to watch Youtube.
Now it’s screen is cracked on the bottom right, the touchscreen area about 3cm on the left side is dead, sometimes lagggy, sort-of broken speaker (cracks at low frequencies) and worst of all – broken WiFi antenna. It’s WiFi connection is so bad it hardly detects the Starbucks wifi.
I’ve been wanting to do a repair myself but kept thinking if it is worth it. Total cost for the DIY repair is Rp 300.000-ish in Rupiah (or about $22 US) and that includes for the new LCD, new WiFi antenna, and screen adhesive. I can live with the cracked speaker and the battery is -meh- ok, and that’s why I don’t plan on replacing it (and partly because you have to like disassemble most of the iPad just to get these two I think).
So yeah I want to know your thoughts if I should repair it or not, and tips for doing it because I have (near) ZERO experience on phone repairing. Much thankyou.
