    My girlfriend smashed her iPad screen today. Think it's the original iPad. Can they replace screens on old iPads ?

    Don't forget to backup the iPad via iTunes or iCloud, makes it easy to reinstall everything in case you get a new one.

    Yeah you could do it yourself cheaper but probably better getting a new one.

    just ordered an air 2 with wifi and cellular for £250. 16GB seems a good deal to me really. Cheaper and gives her a newer iPad.

    true, air 2 will be a nice upgrade

    what does the air 2 ship with software wise? she is on 9.3.5 right now. guessing she may need to update the software on her old one to get a backup to work on the air 2?

    You can take a back up from an older OS and go to the new air two and It will restore from the backup on a new os version no problem nothing you have to do on your end

    even something as simple as using a fingerprint instead of her using a code each time
