    I have this iPad which was cracked by mistakenly. It is just a small crake in the middle. It workes fine. Is it okay to use an iPad with a cracked screen? How long it will last without repair.?

    You could use a screen protector to prolong its life.

    Hi Kevin - check the recent LINK below - a small tight crack should not be a major issue unless it spreads and/or extends - agree w/ Jupiter, a screen protector is a good suggestion, especially to protect your fingers (Gorilla glass is strong and sharp if broken).

    You did not tell us which iPad, its age, or warranty status, which would impact on your choices; also, if you're not near an Apple store for an assessment and estimate, Best Buy is now a certified 'Apple Repair Store' - might want to visit one for their advice. Good luck. Dave
