Truck vs. iPad – The Aftermath!

Over the years I’ve been amazed at just how much abuse Apple products can actually take, and today was another memorable one. Truck vs. iPad!

Car vs. iPad

Ouchie ouchie ouchie ouchie ouchie

That poor thing is what happens when an iPad gets left in a bag on a driveway… And then someone drives away… Right over said bag. It was reported the crunching sound was impressively loud.

It was left for dead, but faint murmurs of life could be heard in the form of received text messages from the otherwise lifeless hulk. Client decided to bring it in to us to see if there was anything that could be done.

Well, we love a challenge at The Stem, and we gleefully accepted this one! After an extraction of embedded glass, a clean up of the edges (Which included a little sacrificial blood letting) some reworking of aluminiuminuminuminum.. Scotty would have been proud!

Though more honest in our time estimates.. Like LaForge…

Truck vs. iPad – IPAD WINS!

Unbelievably, the LCD survived.. Though it had a few glass particles driven into it. The Lightning port was intact though the housing around it required some shaping. Battery and logic board were fine. The case itself had some significant bends, but we managed to work those out. In the end, all she needed was a new digitizer and bit of loving. Can’t even tell…

Truck vs. iPad
