I woke up this morning to find my iPad 2 is totally dead. Unresponsive, won't turn on, won't reset, nothing on the screen, acting remarkably like an inert lump of metal.
I've booked a genius bar appointment on Monday; but I'm acutely aware that it's out of warranty (I'm stunned I didn't buy Applecare - could've sworn I did, but ay).
And it looks like a hardware failure.
I've got a night shift tonight, and've recently been paid for some teaching work; tbh, I'm tempted to go out and get an iPad 3, so's I've got something to be up to tonight. And in the absence of much hope wrt the iPad 2.
Any thoughts on likely / possible problems; and, perhaps more importantly, likely / possible repairs, and the likely costs thereof?
