    I'm living in the UK

    There are two hairline cracks on my iPad mini screen. They won't be covered by warranty. I've seen on YouTube a 'How To Replace An iPad Mini Screen' so it looks like it is repairable, hopefully that means I won't have to buy a new one!

    Anyway I am of course wondering about the cost of a fix here in the UK. I would not have the covidence or experience to do a DIY job on it.

    Anyone know how much Apple charges for this service? I'd be expecting a premium charge, which leads me to think of my local computer store. But my preference would be for an Apple fix, if it wasn't over the top

    As of today the machine is working fine, so there doesn't appear to be any internal damage. Is there any temporary fix I can do to say stop the crack spreading?

    Thanks
    Kevin

    My dad completely shattered his to the extent of it denting the back of it! Door handle + fall!
    Anyhow! The local shop did it for £80 as where the door knob hit was where the battery was so missed the board. They also took out the dent the best they could too.
    I imagine Apple would be around the £180 mark.

    If it's an original iPad mini, the cost of repair is prohibitive versus the cost of a mini 2.

    Yes the cost is prohibitive: as it's just a hair crack I'll stick with it for the immediate future and when funds allow upgrade.
