Hi everyone,

I purchased an iPad 2 32GB with ATT 3G last year when they were new and recently got a pretty big scratch on the screen which still makes the iPad usable but it is very annoying.

Is there any way I can get my screen fixed at the Apple store or is there no way to get this fixed now given the iPad 3 is out. I know they still sell the iPad 2 so they might have some of the parts including the glass, but I know they usually give out new/refurbished products instead of actually fixing the old one.

Any advice? Thanks!

Will they charge for it to be replaced and do you know how much? Not that I really mind... Rather pay for a screen replacement than a brand new one...

They won't just replace the screen, The Apple store doesn't do repairs they will just swap it out for a refurbished iPad for a price of £206.44/$249

You can replace the glass with a little know how for really cheap. Check Ebay for iPad front glass. iFixit has how to guides on how to remove and replace the from glass.

My granddaughter dropped their iPad 2 down the stairs last month and it pretty much destroyed the screen. My son found a local place that replaced it for $129. They did a pretty nice job.

Locally around locally if you don't want to pay Apple's price.
