4: Ask help for Apple
If you have AppleCare, you are lucky and don’t need a walk, just run to get it fixed. But if you don’t, get an estimate and weigh the cost of repair against the cost of upgrading to a new device.
If you don’t live close to an Apple Store, you can call 1-800-MY-APPLE in order to set up a mail-in repair. If you don’t have AppleCare, you may have to pay for the call, but it’s less of a waste than having a dead iPhone or iPad.
