    I guys looking for a bit of advice. I dropped my iPad on a tiled floor and have damaged the corner up near the camera . The aluminium back is bent and causing the front part of my screen to bend up and out...to the point I can see inside the casing. I also have the back light showing quite a lot around the screen. Everything works fine but any advice on getting this repaired or taking to genius bar. Is this something that would be covered with warranty? I am still within warrant as 6 months old. Gutted about it. Another,thing I'm noticing as I type this is it seems very very hot at the moment!? I did it on holiday and still away so can't contact apple at the mo....

    CHeers guys

    You should definitely take it in to an Apple store. Your ipad needs a new case as well replacements for possile damaged internal components. The overheating since the accident may be caused by a damaged battery. The damage to your iPad, caused by the fall is not covered under warranty unless you purchased the AppleCare+ plan.
    BTW, if there's an Apple store near where you are staying while on holiday, you can try taking it to the Genius bar there and having them take a look at it.

    The cost is for out of warranty repair is generally about half the cost of a new iPad. What they do is exchange your iPad for a new or refurbished iPad. Make sure to do a backup of your iPad before taking it in.
