How much does it cost?

If your iPad issue is covered under our warranty or consumer law, you won't pay a fee. Otherwise, repairs are considered out of warranty (and not covered) when:

  • Your iPad is no longer covered by the Apple warranty or by consumer law.
  • Your iPad screen gets broken accidentally.
  • Your iPad has other accidental damage or issues caused by unauthorized modifications. 

If your iPad issue isn’t covered, you’ll pay an out-of-warranty fee unless your iPad has AppleCare+, which includes two incidents of accidental damage. You might be able to use one of those incidents for a cracked screen or for other damage to your iPad. Each AppleCare+ incident has a service fee, as shown.

Battery service costs

If your battery needs replacement, we can repair or replace your iPad for a battery service fee. There's no fee if your battery is defective and your iPad is covered by warranty, consumer law, or AppleCare+. Our warranty doesn’t cover wear from normal use.

If you have AppleCare+ for iPad, it offers replacement coverage if your iPad battery can hold only 80 percent or less of its original capacity.

Battery service In-warranty or with AppleCare+ Out-of-warranty
All eligible iPad models A$ 0 A$ 139

All prices are in Australian dollars and include GST. If your iPad is out of warranty and requires shipping, we'll add an additional A$ 19.95 shipping fee to the listed service price.

Screen repair

If your iPad screen breaks accidentally, you have the option to replace your iPad for an out-of-warranty fee. Accidental damage isn't covered by the Apple warranty or by consumer law.

If your screen cracks due to a manufacturing defect, it’s covered by the Apple warranty and consumer law.

The cost to service an iPad with an accidentally damaged screen depends on your iPad model, any additional damage, and if you have AppleCare+ coverage.

AppleCare+ for iPad includes up to two incidents of accidental damage. Each incident has a service fee. You can use an incident for screen damage. If you don’t have AppleCare+, the out-of-warranty fee applies.

After we receive your iPad, we’ll send you information about repair, replacement, and fees. If your iPad needs to be replaced, we’ll ship a replacement to you with factory settings. Your replacement iPad will be new or equivalent to new.
