    Yesterday I found a scratch on my iPad screen. It's small but it is visible and annoying. Is there anyway I can fix this without returning it to get it fixed? ((Sorry I didn't mean return as in get rid of it but as return it to get it fixed))

    Unless it is a deep scratch, it is probably just a minor scratch to the special coating. If that is the case, no way to remove that save removing the special film coating.

    If it is a deep scratch, that involves big bucks to Apple to replace.

    It's not always that big. If it really is a small scratch they often cut a deal. Don't ask for one but see what they say if you take it in. Be sure to have it backed up.

    So you expect the store to take back an iPad that you damaged? Why?

    You can try putting a ghost armor screen protector, that may fill the crack in or hide it. You cannot return it, as its now damaged.

    If after a few days you find that you can not live with the scratch, Apple will replace but it will cost you.
