Tech advice, please: -Screen has cracked on fairly new iPad 11. When I accepted insurance, was told $29 for unlimited screen repairs. -Asurion now says $229 and will send a new ipad. Can't (or won't) say if its refurbished. -That option would cost me $229 and I'd have to 11s

*two 11s. -- Do I go to a screen repair place? -- Pay the $229 and get a possibly refurbished model to replace a 5-month old model? --Buy a new one and sell cracked screen one? -- Cancel Asurion?

Well, update. Screen repair place is $349. And I've learned that if I let the insurance replace it, I have to send the cracked one back. I think I've uncovered a scam system. I'm going to blow the lid off on this one.

Advise always buy Apple products from Apple store and get Apple care.

I did get it from the apple store, but did not get apple care. When I called to set it up, Verizon pushed so hard on the insurance.

Apple care I think is the only way to go. Get immediate replacement. I had the Asurion insurance and had the same result as you.

I do AppleCare too. At least for phones it’s usually a 2 hour service (if you have a local store, anyway) to replace the screen the two times I’ve had to do it. Plus if they do give a refurb I trust a refurb direct from the company more than from a third party.
