You may not believe but your iPad can still work with a cracked screen. The device can work even when the display is shattered, although it will be difficult for you read the text on the screen. Unfortunately, it is not that cheap to get the display of an iPad replaced.
Apple has a fixed price based on the model of the iPad. The cheapest screen repair charge for iPad is 199 dollars. This is the cost to replace screen of iPad Mini or iPad Mini 2 and the prices go up from there. The iPad, iPad 2, and iPad Air will cost 249 dollars, whereas that for iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Mini 3, iPad Mini 4, and iPad Air 2 will cost 299 dollars. If you have the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, you will have to spend 379 dollars for a screen replacement, and if you had the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, screen replacement will cost 599 dollars.
It is true that you will find a better deal in a third party repair store, but if you get the screen replaced by Apple, you will have a one-year warranty on the screen, even if the iPad device is out of warranty. This means that if you encounter any issues with the sensors on the screen even after many months of replacing it, you will not have to pay any additional charges for its repair. However, this does not apply for the third party repair companies. The different options to get your screen replaced from Apple are discussed below.
If you Have AppleCare+
Is your iPad is covered by Apple’s extended warranty? If yes, then you are in luck! One of the best features of the AppleCare+ is that it covers accidental damages also, which includes a cracked screen, and you can have the replacement for a very reasonable service charge of 49 dollars. The replaced screen will also be covered by a one-year warranty.
If the Crack is Very Small
The normal one-year warranty of Apple does not cover accidental damage, but some hairline cracks will be considered display flaw. If your iPad is still within the warranty period, it will be good to take your tablet to the nearest Apple store to see if the crack is covered under warranty. You can save a lot on replacement works this way.
