Good idea to buy cracked iPads and fix them? I'm a student and want to make a bit of money but cant find any cheap enough. Ideas of places to buy them?

By the time you get burned on one a couple of times it’s not all that profitable.

Look on eBay, there are plenty of ones with cracked screens being sold as for parts or repair.

Been looking for an iPad air/5 or above but they're still going for around 80
Right, and a replacement screen is going to cost you what, £15? You'd still be able to fix it and sell it for a profit, I'm not sure exactly what you think you are going to find out there.

I doubt you’ll be able to make money out of it as everyone and their dog is doing that already.

You got lucky and next time you might or might not. When you don’t get lucky that’ll be your profit gone from all the other sales. You clearly know better than all of us so keep going and let us know when you get that Ferrari and big mansion from all your broken iPads.

Nope, the type of person who smashes the screen doesn't generally know that electronics and liquids don't mix.

Why do you sound so angry?
I'm literally doing this as a hobby and to make a little money on the side. I'm obviously not gonna buy one that's too expensive hence why I've only bought one so far and have made a profit. Calm down a bit mate

I’m not angry I’m laughing.....
Maybe eBay? But only buy them if its cheap and worth the risk
Try not to try the big sellers or someone who said they tried to repair
Someone who thinks a broken screen means its completely broken and unfixable which is a lot lol
