I recently dropped my iPad. Because it was protected by the Apple iPad case, it survived and only had a minor scratch. See pic in my previous post here. Anyway, I was wondering what it means to Apple when it comes to future Applecare warranty. I called Apple, the answer I got was... basically it's voided. The exact sentence was: "Even though it is working 100% now, a problem may develop in the future". In other words, just because there is a scratch on my iPad now, any future issues could be blamed to that; i.e., no Applecare!
