Cracked screen replacement costs?

Picked my ipad 2 up earlier and found a crack in the screen, No idea how it happened and it was in its case, folded up.


Had it since 2011 so out of warranty.

Has anyone had theirs replaced and if so, how much did it cost?

Seriously? Why even post if you're going to reply with useless trash like this? At least answer the OP's question.

@OP: it'll cost you around $150, possibly more or less.

Yes, seriously. I bothered posting because the OP made it sound like he thought that the cracked screen would be covered by the warranty if the iPad was still within the warranty period. My post was just as relevant as yours. The only difference is that I didn't act like an ass.

Thank you both. I will look into getting a replacement screen then. Do the usual places in the mall do this? I.e the little stalls who do screen protected fittings etc.

Oops, forgot to mention the estimate I have you was for a 3rd party repair shop. As far as I know my local mall does not offer services on iPad repair, you may have better luck where you are.

Be warned that usually third party repair shops usually use lower quality parts than genuine Apple parts. Just because it is cheaper does not always mean better.
