All iPads are covered by the AppleCare warranty, which covers manufacturer defects. AppleCare coverage does not cover loss, theft, negligence (. B reckless fall of the iPad) or misuse (.

The student must report problems or damage to an SOD to a teacher, principal or school staff. If an SOD is damaged and you want to do the repairs directly, it should only be taken to any Billings iDoctor location (currently West End near Shopko or Heights near Airport & Main). This maintains warranty coverage and minimizes your additional costs. If a repair shop other than iDoctor voids the warranty, damages a device, or can`t perform a repair, you may be charged for a new iPad.
