    if you have applecare or applecare +, you can get a replacement. if you dont, then by going into apple and lying about the crack to try to swindle them out of replacing it is just wrong. or you can be honest with them and see if they will replace it for you. warranty doesnt cover accidental damage, but applecare does.

    Apple has been known to replace out of warranty iPad for free, but it is hit or miss. If it is new and you paid for it with a credit card, the card issuing company may have accidental coverage. You might want to look into it, OP.

    Yeah, but not so much anymore...if at all. When AC+ came out, out of warranty, sympathy replacements slowly disappeared.

    No this an apple forum, and this post is in the iPad section. I think you're the one who's lost.

    What if there is other damage inside, will AC+ cover as well?

    AC will cover accidental damage. so it will cover drop damage regardless of minor or major damage.
