How I resurrected my old iPad for cheap — and it was worth it

I am DYING to tell you about how I repurposed my old tablet into a handy ebook reader. And if you’ve got an old or broken device lying around, you could try this too, if you can find an inexpensive repair shop in your area. Let me tell you, it’s worth the trouble.

I bought my Apple iPad mini 2 way back in 2014 for around ₹22,000($289), to listen to songs, watch videos, try and uncheck long articles off my reading list, and play a game occasionally. I was working in the software industry back then, and entertainment was my primary concern.

I especially liked the size as I could lay in bed, and hold the device with one hand. I didn’t care about having a super gigantic screen.
