    Hey,My new ipod touch that I got from my Birthday has a small crack on the screen. No more than 2mm, I was wondering if Apple's warranty covers that? I don't know where it came from as I have never dropped it. Any tips or answers? Thanks so much.

    Yes, Take it to an apple store and they will most likely swap it out for you.

    Contrary to what you said apple will swap it out for a small price of $199 not to be confused with $1.99

    Cracked screens are not covered by warranty, just like any other form of cosmetic damage - this is the case with all Apple products, including the iPod touch. Some people have gotten lucky and gotten replacements for free, but it still is not covered by warranty.

    Apple won't cover that. Instead of paying $199 for it to be fixed, I'd save that and buy the next generation in September.

    Most likely no. If the screen is cracked, it is cheaper to buy a new one. If they can fix it, it is expensive to do it.
