I have just dropped my iPad and bent the case and chipped it, I only have the warranty that you get when you buy the iPad, can I make a claim. It's an ipad2 16gb wifi.
No. Accidental damage like that is not covered by the warranty.
No, sorry, the basic AppleCare coverage doesn't include accidental damage. The newer version, AppleCare Plus, does cover those things but you can't apply it retroactively.
Even if I was using an official iPad smart cover on it?
What does the smart cover has to do with it?
I just thought that the smart cover was meant to protect it :( so how much wold I be looking at for a repair of the outer shell then?
You may be able to make a claim/recover costs from your home insurance policy cover. Minor damage is often covered such as this..
The smart cover was not/does not protect agains drops.
Apple does not repair your iPad. They will exchange it for a refurbished one for:
Wouldn't it get rid of my no claims discount though?
Also how much would it cost if I sent it off to be repaired, or am I better of replacing it?
So if it's only a dent I should send it to be repaired by a another company otherwise it would cost me 300 bucks
A third party repair will invalidate your warranty.
For the first question, you'd have to ask the insurance company.
A number of people have already responded to you.
So the OP damages his device, and wants apple to pay for it? Does this person have an rational sense?
