Screen scratch or hairline crack?!
Okay so my mum got me the shiny new iPad 3 for my birthday and I have been so careful. The back is in pristine condition because I have a lovely case that works wonderfully for me.
However, I was using my iPad the other day, when I noticed something. When you have a drop of water on any screen you see lots of the pixels magnified right? So when I looked down I could see a little line of pixels or whatever that looked odd. I ran my finger over them very gently and to my horror i could feel a scratch. It feels quite deep in one particular place and I swear it appears to be spreading. Having taken a good look, there is one main long scratch with a few bits along it that look really bad and those bits can be seen (and felt) when the ipad is on and illuminated.
I am beginning to wonder if it is just a really deep scratch or a crack. I have no idea how though. I have never dropped it and as I said, the case is a good one - It's pretty rugged. I am so upset about this. Mum dosen't know yet. I haven't the heart to tell her.
Any thoughts or advice? It wouldn't bother me if it was a scratch but it feels much much worse, looks like more than just a scratch and Is quite visible. (possibly because the screen is so good...) It also feels like that putting any form of stress, no matter how minute, on it may damage it further!
I can't easily get to an apple store. The nearest one is like an hours drive away. I have no clues about whether or not is covered by warranty but seeing as I have had it only 34 days is there anything that I can do?
Any help is massively appreciated.
