Will my apple care+ cover replacement of my iPhone screen that is scratched but not cracked?

There's maybe a quarter inch somewhat deep scratch and then a inch long curved scratched on my XR.

Will they fix this? Or should I let it be?

Ty in advance.

They should fix it. I had a similar issue on my X last year. But just keep in mind that you'll only have one instance left to use. If you're going to sell the device later this year, then it's a moot point. But if you're planning on keeping the device, you should ask yourself if it's worth it.

Yeah I've never really scratched my device before.. Might invest in one of those protectors I've always said that I don't need hah

If you’re not keen on having Apple attempt to replace your display, try a screen protector, not also will conceal the scratches, but it’ll prevent further ones from happening as well.

If they aren’t deep scratches a high quality screen protector especially for those you need to pour some liquid onto the screen in order to apply will very much conceal the scratches.

According to AC+ TOS, scratches are not covered. You cannot get a replacement screen unless it interfere with actual usage of the device.
