I have just noticed that where the smart cover connects to my iPad, there are 2 marks where some of the aluminium has been worn/scratched away. One of them is pretty bad.
Upon looking at the smart cover hinge, i can see two points where it looks like the metal magnet is starting to poke through the plastic strip.
By looking at the teardown HERE it lines up exactly with where two of the 'blobs' are.
Considering this will reduce my resale value, do you think i should get this replaced before warranty runs out as the rest of the iPad is in MINT condition
