    It appears to be a completely unofficial, unacknowledged, 'they will deny it if asked' policy of a once-only replacement for a cracked glass iPad, even if it wasn't the fault of the iPad or Apple. Go in to an Apple Store - be humble, polite, deferential and explain what happened. We've yet to have a Member who hasn't had their iPad replaced. Occasionally they've had to ask - politely - to see the Manager or even go to another Store, but all were successful in the end. Remember, though, it's a courtesy from Apple - and a very fine one at that. There is no entitlement.
