Recently i have unfortunately dropped my iPad Air 2 by accident and now on the back it has a small dent on the upper top right side on the iPad and every time I look at the back of the iPad and it is very noticeable, it drives me CRAZY seeing that small dent on my iPad, it ANNOYS me soo much!! :/

Everyone I really need some help, I really want to get rid the small dent!!

How do I get rid of a small dent of my iPad?? Should I take it in to repairs shop to get rid of the small dent?? Is it possible to get rid of it?? Or would you just live with a small dent on your iPad??

Should I take it back to the place(PC World) I bought it and see if they could get rid of the the small dent??

I would dent the other four corners, buy some rubber "feet," glue them on, and enjoy an excellent custom modification! Everyone will be jealous.

....... well, maybe don't dent it three more time, just buy the "feet" and put them on anyways.

Otherwise, ignore the dent, as cosmetic issues are not covered.

Put a case on it and with time you will forget about the traumatic dent.
Regarding repairing it, if you don't have applecare+ then you will be paying a decent amount of money as apple does NOT fix iPads, they will simply give you a brand new replacement for $299. Don't quote me on the price however.
If you are going to pay that, I would also recommend you look into open-box iPad Pro's that are $100-150 more than replacing the iPad. You could perhaps offset the cost by selling the dented iPad on ebay/craigs/swappa and so on.

The randomness made me chuckle.

That sucks and I'd hate that too. However, I don't there is a cost effective way to get rid of that dent. I think the idea of getting a really nice case and covering it up is a good one.

When you upgrade someday, maybe consider getting a case right away. I've dropped my iPad Pro a couple times since I bought it and the case has protected it perfectly so far.

It's funny I have a case on my iPad Pro since day one and every once in a while I take it off and realize how thin the 12.9 inch model is compared to what it has the Case on it

Seriously, this warrants an URGENT!!!! ?
It's a device you carry around and it's not going to stay perfect forever. Get over it and get yourself a cover if you don't want any more small dents.
No one is going to be able to fix the dent and PC World is going to tell you to bugger off if you go there asking them to replace it.

If you actually look at the front of the iPad where all the activity takes place you probably won't notice the dent.
 
For one, stop dropping expensive devices, get a case if you can't help it.

Second, Apple might pull the dent out for you if it's covered under AppleCare, probably not since it's accidental damage.

Third, if you are feeling adventurous, you can take it a part and pull it out yourself.

Fourth, if money is no object, buy a new one, give that one to someone who doesn't care there is a dent in it.
