I just dropped my ipad mini onto linoleum 4 days after getting it and the screen is cracked. The smartcover separated while I was reading in bed and it took about a 1 foot tumble. I've never cracked any iphone(since 2008) or ipad(since 2010) screen. I always keep them in tough iphone/ipad cases. How much will Apple ask to fix it or replace? I didn't get Applecare+. Do you think Apple will cut me a break? One thing's for sure: I am returning the smartcover. The ipad 1 cover was rock solid and did not just slip off because of a weak magnetic bond. I had some near misses when the smartcover separated from the mini especially when folded up in a triangle so I could watch CNN on my desk with it.
