Does anyone know if Apple will cover these. I got about 4 or 5 cracks on my iPhone. I bought it in Mid-July. Do you know if I'm out of the date that they would cover it for. It had 1 Pressure crack right out of the box but my Dad picked my phone up for me as I was at work and he didnt notice it
Thanks

As long as it doesnt have any signs that shows its been dropped they should replace it no problem.

Does anyone know if this applies to the UK as well. I have a large crack down where the volume button is and a series of little cracks on both sides of the middle of the screen.

Yes, it does apply to the UK!

I took my white iPhone back to the Milton Keynes Apple store (got it from Carphone Warehouse) after 3-4 months...one fine crack, but visible signs of others forming. They agreed to exchange on the spot after about 30 seconds - no problem whatsoever!

Very impressed with the way they dealt with this - I'd take yours into your local store, good luck!

Yes they will! If you haven't done it already it should be covered. Many people have been having problems with the white back and pressure cracks and stuff of that nature. Bring it in and see what happens.

I know I have been keep a close eye on mine to make sure no cracks appear before my warranty is up this summer.

I sure wish Apple would offer a extended warranty in Canada.
