4th Gen iPad Repairs Could Be Replaced with iPad Air 2

Apple now upgrading iPad 4th gen replacements to newer iPad Air 2 as stock dwindles Apple could offer the newer iPad Air 2 as a replacement for 4th gen iPads

The new model is slightly thicker than the iPad Air 2, but boasts an upgraded custom Apple A9 SoC and more storage for the money. The upgrade will be available on Apple stores and authorized service providers.

If you happen to have one of these older iPads that needs a fix and still has Applecare, you may get a nice upgrade - but if you're paying for that replacement, you might just be better off picking up one of the new iPads Apple released last month.

Apple unveiled the newest iPad model late March as it officially bid goodbye to the iPad Air 2. The recently introduced iPad Air 2 configurations include 32GB and 128GB.

MacBook Air and iPad 4 are notably being sold with chunkier discounts in nearly all retail stores. This is due to the fact that the iPad 4 is dwindling down in supply very fast and the iPad Air 2 is available more readily. This means if you the area you're living in that has iPad 4 in stock, then you won't be getting an iPad Air 2.

If Jake Allen stays in the form he's been over the course of the series , you tip your cap to him and head into the summer. Yes, it is possible to take too simplistic of a view of advanced statistics and draw incorrect conclusions.

In a leaked memo obtained by 9to5Mac, Apple says: "Starting March 30th, iPad 4th generation whole unit repairs may be substituted to iPad Air 2".

The iPad 4 was first released in fall of 2012, but hasn't been manufactured for some time.

As per the company memo, this iPad Air 2 is being given as a substitute replacement because of extremely low levels of stock of the iPad 4 which is aging. The fourth generation iPad was discontinued in 2014, but Apple tends to support its devices for up to 5 years after their debut. Launching mid-ranged high-end devices are the only way to encourage tablet users to abandon their devices and grab a new one. The chances that Apple will launch an iPad event in April are high. The refresh is seemingly aimed at users with old iPad models looking for an upgrade that won't break the bank.

However, while there is a bit of catch, this is still potentially a great way to get a free upgrade.
