Last weekend I carelessly cracked the screen of my retina iPad Mini - it slipped from my grasp when using it at a table and in catching it I banged it on the table edge. I took it to Apple and a Genius told me that they didn't/can't repair the damage and my only option with them would be to pay £200 for a replacement. This seems rather steep - I can apparently get £60 for it in trade in with Apple, yet a brand new replacement is £249, so that would actually be slightly cheaper! A variety of companies offer screen repairs for iPad Minis but I'm a bit wary. If Apple can't/won't repair, how will a 3rd party company repair reliably? Has anyone had a repair of the Mini 2 screen, and if so is it still as good as before or is the touchscreen performance degraded? It seems that the touch panel underneath the cracks is still working fine.
