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 over one year old.
- Your iPad screen gets broken accidentally.
- Your iPad has other accidental damage or issues caused by unauthorised 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 an excess fee, as shown.

iPad battery and power – United Kingdom
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 cover if your iPad battery holds less than 80 percent of its original capacity.
|Battery service||In-warranty or with AppleCare+||Out-of-warranty|
|All eligible iPad models||£ 0||£ 99|
All prices are in British pound sterling and include VAT. We'll add a £7.44 delivery fee if your repair requires delivery and isn't covered under warranty or AppleCare+.
Other battery and power issues
Your iPad battery’s performance depends on how you use apps and settings. These tips show you how to maximise the life of your iPad battery.
If your iPad won't turn on or if the screen turns black, follow these steps and see if the issue gets resolved. Your iPad might not require service.
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+ cover.
AppleCare+ for iPad includes up to two incidents of accidental damage. Each incident has an excess fee. You can use an incident for screen damage. If you don’t have AppleCare+, the out-of-warranty fee applies.

Depending on the type of service, your repair might take up to 5 business days. If your iPad was engraved by Apple, it could take up to 10 business days.
After we receive your iPad, you can check the status of your repair.

Your Apple Pencil is also covered under AppleCare+ for iPad, including accidental damage. You can use one of the two incidents of accidental damage included in AppleCare+ for iPad to cover a damaged Apple Pencil. Or you can pay the out-of-warranty service fee.
