How much does it cost?

If your iPad issue is covered under our warranty or consumer law, you won’t pay a fee. Otherwise, repairs are considered out of warranty (and not covered) when:

  • Your iPad is over one year old.
  • Your iPad screen gets broken accidentally.
  • Your iPad has other accidental damage or issues caused by unauthorised modifications.

If your iPad issue isn’t covered, you’ll pay an out-of-warranty fee unless your iPad has AppleCare+, which includes two incidents of accidental damage. You might be able to use one of those incidents for a cracked screen or for other damage to your iPad. Each AppleCare+ incident has an excess fee, as shown.
