    Hi, is there a way to get it done cheaper than $249 Apple charges? Are there kits or other stores that do it cheaper?

    Yes, many repair centers replace iPhone/ipad screens. But be careful about this. I just got an iPad mini 2 screen replaced for $99 ($108 incl tax) versus Apple $199 but it wasn't that great. The home button sank a few weeks later.

    Then I dropped it again! and when I looked into repair, I discovered that the after market screens that most buy are too thick and the home button sinking is common. I don't know about the mini vs Air 2.

    if you just break the glass and digitizer underneath, it can be cheaper. If the underlying LCD is broken, that will be expensive and you might be better off with Apple (I think you can tell LCD is broken if lines are wavy).

    One bad thing about iPads is that they can break easier than Macs and that cost should be factored in. I bought the apple care plus on my Air 2 (so $150 all in to replace a cracked screen) but didn't buy on the mini 2 as I thought that technology was older and good chance I might want to upgrade two years later (still I tried anyway with the repair shop).

    Hi everyone. Does anyone know if the iCracked replacement kit website is a reputable? I know there are 'good' reviews, but it's easy to hire friends to post reviews on a business site. Thanks. here is the link and the product I want to buy to fix my iPad Air 2 screen. Does the iPad air have the same screen/digitizer as iPad Air 2? https://shop.icracked.com/products/ipad-air-premium-screen-replacement-repair-kit

    Yes you can get the screen fixed for less then $250 I found a repair company online that fixed my ipad pro 12.9 screen and just got a newsletter from them that they are now fixing the ipad air 2 glass only, from what i've read on there site your LCD has to be good. They say they are offering this repair for $150 and pay shipping both ways. They did a great job on my pro I'm sure they'll do great on the air 2. iMaster Repair
