- Your iPad screen gets broken accidentally. Accidental damage isn't covered by the Apple warranty.
- Your iPad has other types of 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 can use an incident for a cracked screen or for other damage to your iPad. Each AppleCare+ incident has an excess fee, as shown.
