About iPad Motherboard Repair Service:

We specialize in chip-level repairs. As long as a previous unsuccessful repair attempt did not damage your iPad motherboard, we can fix it! Few Apple Service Centers in Dubai can perform motherboard-level repairs correctly. However, we are proud to say that we are one of them. We can resolve motherboard level repairs for most iPad models. Our Repair Center is an ESD-protected state-of-the-art facility with highly skilled and experienced technicians.

Fixing an iPad motherboard requires a unique skill set, technical know-how, and specialized tools and equipment for a successful repair. We believe in performing precision iPad repair work like a neurosurgeon, which is essential while handling SMD components – surface-mounted devices. Unfortunately, most iPad repair shops do not have the equipment or experience, resulting in failed repair attempts.

Most places handle iPad motherboard repairs differently and usually utilize shortcuts to resolve issues. However, those issues come back. We believe in restoring your iPad to its original state and therefore take the proper route in resolving every problem. We never compromise on the quality of parts we use and workmanship which comes at a cost. Hence, you may find our motherboard repair pricing to be on the higher side.

Motherboard repair is a complex and time-consuming process that requires patience and accuracy during the repair & troubleshooting process. We sometimes have to keep the device under observation before finalizing the repair. Ensuring a quality repair means being cautious of any express solutions or quick repair promises resulting in irreversible damage to your iPad.

Damage symptoms:

How long will it take?

Repair time will depend on the severity of the problem and how soon we can pinpoint the faulty component. Most iPad motherboards are repaired within the first 24 hours, provided there is no previous repair attempt. Complex motherboard faults can take several days or longer.

Is there any warranty for the repair?

Our iPad Motherboard Repair service comes with a 6-months warranty.

*Warranty is considered void if your device has accidental damage, liquid ingress, user misuse, or if there is any third-party repair attempt carried out.

Common problems that are related to the iPad motherboard:

IC* Integrated Circuit

WiFi/Bluetooth Module

The WiFi and Bluetooth are related to one component, which may fail or stop working due to liquid ingress, or when you drop your iPad, or it can malfunction because of component failure.

Common symptoms:

Audio IC

The Audio IC controls the speaker and microphone and communicates the audio signals to the CPU for further processing. The audio failure is indicated when you are having trouble with some or all audio functions of your iPad.

Common symptoms:

Touch IC

The Touch IC controls the capacitive touch in your iPad, where the user’s touch inputs from the screen are relayed to the CPU.

Common symptoms:


Your iPad LCD IC can be faulty if you can hear the sounds or incoming facetime or video calls but cannot see anything on the screen.

Light IC

The Light IC in your iPad might be faulty if the screen brightness is low or non-existent.

Nand IC

The Nand IC is the hard drive of your iPad. The Nand IC stores all the data, applications, and iOS software. Replacing the Nand IC involves restoring your iPad, which results in data loss. Hence is recommended to back up your iPad if possible. The Nand IC can be replaced with the same or greater storage capacity while maintaining the same serial/IMEI number.

Common symptoms:

Baseband IC

The Baseband IC is responsible for all phone and data communications over the mobile network. Therefore, phone calls and data can be impaired because of the baseband IC fault.

Common symptoms:

Battery Connector

If the battery connector on your iPad motherboard is damaged, your iPad will only function while on charge and restart in a few minutes.


The Charging IC or the USB IC is faulty if your iPad can still not charge and the charging flex is functional.

Common symptoms:

Power IC

The Power IC, also known as PMIC, is one of the main components in your iPad motherboard. It is responsible for regulating, transferring, switching, step-up, and step-down the voltage from the battery across the motherboard. Power IC is robust and rarely fails. Most technicians end up with the wrong diagnosis when your iPad motherboard heats up, concluding as PMIC failure where a connected part or component is causing the PMIC to heat up.


The CPU (central processing unit) is the brain of your device, which performs the primary computing functions of your device. Currently, the iPad 6 and iPad 7 are affected with CPU failures. If removing and refixing the CPU does not solve the problem, the CPU must be replaced, which results in data loss and inoperable touch ID functionality.

Here are some of the most common questions customers ask about iPad motherboard repair.

Yes, the motherboard of an iPad can be repaired. However, motherboard repairs are complex and time-consuming, requiring patience and technical expertise. Hence it is critical to find a reliable repair center specializing in chip-level repairs.

While Apple does not repair the iPad motherboard but instead replaces the whole iPad, which is not always economical. The price to fix your iPad motherboard may vary from store to store and can cost anywhere between $125 to $260

Fixing your iPad motherboard is cheaper than buying a new iPad and is good for the environment. However, suppose there are multiple problems with your iPad and a faulty motherboard, and the repair cost exceeds the device value. In that case, we only recommend proceeding with the repair if your data is essential.

Over the years of fixing iPad, we have identified three main reasons which cause iPad motherboards to fail.

1: Physical Damage
Most users drop their iPad from time to time. Even with an excellent protective cover, a fall’s impact affects the motherboard. The harder it falls, the more damage it does to the motherboard.

2: Water Damage
The problem of water-damaged iPad is common since we carry these devices everywhere. The beach, pool, dining table, and kitchen can wreak havoc on an unwary iPad when exposed to liquid. Liquid on the iPad motherboard causes corrosion and oxidation resulting in the degradation of metals. Nothing good ever really comes of this. A circuit board corrodes just like a car rusts and eventually dies.

3: Component failure
No matter how careful you are while using your iPad, component failure can come as a surprise. Several iPad users have encountered this problem when the iPad suddenly shuts off and no longer powers up. It mainly occurs when the iPad is kept for overnight charging and does not power up in the morning.
