Crack in my iPad Air!!

Hi. My iPad Air has developed a crack in the corner running from outside edge to outside edge of the white frame. Used it last night folded case over and....cracked this am!!

i have not dropped it ever...

what is the best course of action?  I bought it from apple store online in March. 

Deal with a store- humans and seeing the crack for themselves. 

Deal with it online/phone- robots and having to send pictures probably..

 

seems to be quite common having a quick google..  People putting theirs on a table for 5mins returning and a crack appearing. 

 

Anyway thought i would share.

Yes. Go to a store.  More likely to get resolved on the spot.

Ouch! sorry to hear about that John - sounds like a stress fracture in the glass - just take it back to Apple Store and get it replaced.

RE: Crack in my iPad Air!!

Thanks Gel. My faith with apple is unshaken. My wife took iPad to store having booked an appointment. Apple guy said no problem for a free replacement. He didn't state there was a problem but said he had another appointment for a similar problem. 

Next decision- apple care or not??

 

thanks. John

The cover glass on my iPad

The cover glass on my iPad air is cracked. Fair enough I dropped it but Apple says on their website they wont replace damaged goods.  How did you manage to get yours replaced?

N-Rays - I believe therefore I see.

Sounds exactly like the crack I have in my iPad screen - top right, just a little corner piece...
