I have an iPad Pro 12.9. I bought one of these Pencil holders from steel connect. http://www.steelconnect.co/category-s/1820.htm The plastic piece that gets inserted into the lightning connector broke off and is lodged in the lightning connector and I can't get it out. I took it to a Cell Phone Repair place and they won't do it. Apple says I have to get a new iPad or send it in for service for $599!?!?!? Any suggestions on who I can send this to in order to get it fixed for not $600? Or am I just screwed and sell it for parts on eBay and pay the difference for a new one? The iPad is still in great shape, and works fine. But once the battery dies, I'm screwed and I can't put the charger on. Any ideas or help would be really appreciated. It makes it even worse that the new iPad Pro is probably coming out in March. FML.
