ipad spoilt, worth repairing?
 
Hi

I have a spoilt ipad mini 2 which cannot load to the main OS. based on apple care centre, the motherboard is spoilt.

a 1 to 1 exchange would cost 200 for the refurbished set, just wondering if it is worth repairing or just to discard it away

New 2018 iPad is $300+ only so I would say no

no point.. with mini 5 (rumored) coming out soon. mini 4 would drop price even further after its launch.

Nope. Just get a new iPad 9.7 2018 for <$400 and you get the A10 compared to the slow and sluggish A7 on the iPad mini 2.

im just worried that the files inside the ipad get taken out.. its mainly pictures and personal information... thus i also dont feel good selling it to some random shop in case.

Maybe Apple can help you trade in? Or erase the memory... cos you discard also got risk of people prying into your tablet's memory...
