Apple to replace iPad 4th gen with iPad Air 2

Apple to replace iPad 4th gen with iPad Air 2

On the other hand, upgrade of the fourth-generation iPad to an iPad Air 2 will vary.

Customers who need to get their iPad 4 repaired might be in for a surprise from Apple -they might get a new iPad Air 2 as a replacement instead, as Apple runs out of stock for the now-discontinued tablet. So it is possible that if your new iPad is damaged, you can receive the iPad Air 2 of 2014 as a substitute for the duration of its fix. Given that the memo says from the 30th of March, it means that this should have already come into effect and there should be customers who are the receiving end of this new exchange.

Many Apple Stores and service providers don't perform repairs on iPads, in which case a replacement is often the solution to many fix situations. First off, minor repairs and touch-ups won't entitle you to get a free Air 2. According to 9to5Mac, Apple employees have been told that the iPad Air 2, which was released in late 2014 and manufactured for over two years, can be used as a replacement when stock of the older model is unavailable. Rather, Apple has let the store manager and authorized service staff decide if a particular iPad 4 qualifies for the replacement.

Translation: Stock for the iPad 4, which came out in 2012, is running out, and the parts needed to fix broken iPad 4s are low as well. Also, it should be kept in mind that the iPad Air 2 is subject to region availability as well. The treatment for the said device drags another iPad tier, iPad Air 2.

There are, of course, some key differences between the fourth-gen iPad and the iPad Air 2.

There is some good news for Apple iPad users. The specifications of the iPad remains the same, the only major difference is the A8X chipset, the new 9.7-inch iPad is powered by a newer A9 chipset. The fourth generation iPad was discontinued in 2014, but Apple tends to support its devices for up to 5 years after their debut.
