And my day is ruined.
That’s my iPad Pro 11″ 2018.
I’ve always been
careful lucky when it comes to my devices and I’ve never cracked a screen or body. I’ve always had my devices in cases and generally use screen protectors.
My iPad Pro was the first I didn’t use a Glass Screen Protector – and I’ve paid the price. Don’t get me wrong – I had one fitted as soon as it was picked up, but the Apple Pencil never worked right with it so I had to take it off.
The iPad is approximately 1 year and 2 months old and I didn’t have Apple Care. That’s important, because if I had Apple Care (an extra £129) the cost of repairing this small mishap would be £39 – a total of £168. I’ve never had any accidental damage so I’ve never needed any type of insurance. However, because of the glass crack I figure it would be better to have it replaced. The cost for what Apple deem an “out of warranty” repair is £496.44 – or about 65% of the cost of a new iPad Pro 64Gb 11″.
I’m now trying to figure out the most cost effective way of having it repaired/replaced.
