    I brought my iPad Mini 2 around December 28 last year. I've treated it very well and there is little damage on the device. Although, I did notice today that it's bent quite badly. I'm ashamed to say that if has to come from me accidentally laying on it.

    I'm not sure wether I'm still insured, but I should be as it's not been a year since I purchased the device. My current plan is to go to an Apple Store tomorrow and just ask wether I could possibly get it replaced. Chances seem slim, though.

    I'm seeking assistance from past threads or even personal experience if you've gone through the same situation. Thank you.

    It's like wrecking your year old car and going back to the seller and asking for new one.

    If your purchased AppleCare+, then yes, you can get a replacement for the $49 fee.

    On a car, only if you bought collision coverage. Same here - Applecare + would cover it, but not the regular warranty.
