Should've bought a case, best investment you could've made. Anyways your practically SOL. Cracked screen is not covered under warranty if any sort and would not be accepted as a return even within policy date as you caused the damage. Go to an electronics repair shop and hopefully they can install a new screen for about $50 or more.

iFixit is great. I broke the back glass when I had an iPhone 4. Ordered the kit for 30 bucks. It comes with the proprietary screwdriver and glass plate. Took me 2 minutes to switch it out.

The front glass is a lot harder to do. Someone I know ordered the front kit. Pretty much had to take the entire phone apart. Took a few hours lols.


Tapatalk & such etc

Heh. They're less sturdy than the iPhone 5, not to mention the disadvantage of using the Android OS.

Applecare won't replace a cracked screen. Damage from abuse etc isn't covered under the terms of service.

That said, the ways of the Genius Bar can be mysterious. It's worth taking it to an Apple Store and seeing what they say.

AppleCare won't but AppleCare + does.

They do it in store for 50

AppleCare you have within a year to add it
AppleCare + you have 30 days
