My iPad history

Got my original iPad shortly after it came out. Early two years ago.
When iPad 2 came out I was able to sell the original to a friend and so the upgrade to the second version was easier on the pocket.
The screen shattered while in South America so have just replaced it with a new iPad 2.
Apple said screen cannot be repaired...is that really so? Sounds like a bit of a con to me but there you are...
Have seen iPad new version, decided the difference to iPad 2 was not worth upgrading.
I'm waiting for the wow factor for future releases, this new one is ok if you're a gamer...not for thanks.

Hi and welcome to the Forum!

Apple do not do repairs on shattered screens but there are many on the net who do, but having them repair it may void your warranty. Apple will do a replacement iPad for a cost.
