Crack in my iPad Air!!
English

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?

Sounds exactly like the crack

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

My uncle has the same problem with his iPad 2.
