View Full Version : iPad Casing Repair.

21st December 2010, 01:45 PM
So sadly I just placed my iPad onto the carpet next to my living room chair like I always do, yet someone in my family left a glass there, preempting a chip in the aluminum casing near the sim car tray. Hardly ever out of it's case, but today it wasn't. Serves me right! Don't live near an Apple Store, but do travel to Brisbane regularly. How much would it cost to repair this at an Apple Store? Anyone done this?

Doubt repair is an option, more likely a unit swap would be on the cards.

And how much would that cost approximately?

Not sure if they do a similar deal as the iPhone ($250 for a damaged iPhone replacement). Potentially you'd just have to buy a new iPad, or claim a new one on insurance if it's that bad.

That sucks mate, sorry to hear that ! :(

This is why I always leave mine in my case, im always wanting to take it out as it looks better without the case, but when I hear these stories it makes me think twice !
