I have the 10.5 inch iPad Pro, without AppleCare. I have never, in all my years of owning each iPad since they were first released, had any screen damage. At the end of April, despite having never been dropped, I had a crack all the way across the screen, starting at the antenna break near the USB-C port. Apple said it looked like impact damage and charged me $599 to replace. Now, less than 2 months later, I have ANOTHER cracked screen! This thing has NOT been dropped, hit or any any way abused. It’s in a smart case, but no screen protector (I have never used them and up until now, never needed them). I’ve got an appt tomorrow at Apple, and if they tell me it looks like drop or impact damage again, I am not going to be happy. I see all the threads on bending, but mine is not bent. I don’t see a cracked screen trend, but is there a known issue with this? You can bet I’ll spring for AppleCare next time. I truly have never needed it, for any of my devices, until now.
