IPad Air 2 Reportedly Being Offered as Fourth Generation iPad Replacement

Apple iPad Arrives In Stores

While you may get a new color and capacity, we also assume that customers with Smart Covers or other accessories for their fourth-generation iPads will need to buy new accessories for the iPad Air 2; we've contacted Apple for clarification and will update if we get a response. With inventories of the iPad 4 basically non-existent, Apple doesn't have any more units lying around to replace any busted models.

With stock of the iPad 4 on the decline, Apple is resorted to providing the more recent iPad Air 2 as replacements units.

Apple is purportedly replacing broken iPad 4 models with new iPad Air 2 units.

This upgrade applies to Apple's official stores or authorized service centers.

This is a great little move from Apple, as it ensures that users get at least something in return rather than nothing at all. So instead, here's an iPad Air 2!

Boston Bruins vs. Ottawa Senators - 4/19/17 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction
The Boston Bruins will receive a boost to their blue line on Wednesday night with the return of Colin Miller . The three goals were scored on just seven shots in the period, the Bruins with just 10 through two.

The reason for the above is simple; Apple is running out of stock of the iPad 4.

This means that people who have broken "iPad 4s" can now have their tablets replaced with an "iPad Air 2" that are readily available in the market. That definitely implies that in fact the minor touch-ups might not serve as a "ticket" to have any user obtain a full transition to the vibrant, newer and of course more capable iPad Air 2. Now that supplies of the fourth generation are dwindling, Apple has apparently freed its employees to substitute an iPad that's two generations newer.

Replacement is the only viable solution, when Apple Stores and the authorized service providers are unable to perform repairs on a particular iPad. And more recently, Apple dropped its 16GB and 64GB SKUs, leaving just 32GB and 128GB models. If so, that could be a nice storage bump for those bringing an iPad in for fix.

The iPad Air 2 was launched in October 2014 and features a variety of improvements from the iPad 4, including a faster processor, brighter Retina display, upgraded cameras, Touch ID fingerprint sensor and a slimmer design.
