]Disaster yesterday with my £649 64gb 4g iPad .. I was picking it up at my other in laws and dropped it on a stone floor
Luckily I had a protective case on so there is no damage to the case itself just the digitiser is smashed as the screen underneath is perfect
I have gadget insurance on the iPad but am in a dilemma
I haves £85excess to pay so wonder what my options are before I go through the insurance
If my insurance replaces the iPad I can't claim again in the 12 months as its one of their conditions so would rather see what e,se I can do
I'm in the uk for your info
If I go to apple will they be able to repair the digitiser and if so what is the cost ?
I have seen an online. Company who are based near me in Manchester who will replace the digitiser for around £70 but am worried it won't be genuine apple parts
Can apple tell if my digitiser has been changed ? I have looked on line and it's only a case of removing the digitiser and replace it so unless apple look inside will they be able to tell ?
Has anyone used protect your bubble who I'm insured with will they repair it of give me new one ?
I'm hoping not to lose,my warranty as I have a 2 year John Lewis warranty (2nnd year is direct with John Lewis first year is apple)
I know it's only a damaged screen but it's the most horrible experience I have ever had I'm sure loads of you have done the same so open to any suggestions
