Adjust Comment Print

The Apple iPad 4 was launched back in 2012. It seems that for a while the iPad Air 2 will be the tablet of those who have problems with the new iPad, something that is far less normal when speaking of a large company of such as Apple. It's up to every store manager if they decide to replace an iPad 4 with another in-stock iPad 4, iPad Air, or an iPad Air 2.

Obtained by 9to5Mac, the internal memo reads: "Starting March 30th, iPad 4th generation whole unit repairs may be substituted to iPad Air 2". Apple has asked its staff to inform customers of the replacement units color and ability. Users who need to replace their iPad 4 units will get a certain upgrade this way. The iPad Air 2 came in two years later, which also signaled the discontinuation of the fourth generation tablets from the Cupertino, California technology firm.

What's more, the iPad Air 2 s available only in 32 and 128 GB variants. But one thing for sure if one had been postponing the repairs for iPad 4 fthen it is the flawless time to go for it now. Given the fact that Apple doesn't manufacture the iPad 4 anymore, it's safe to say they won't have stocks of it forever. The treatment for the said device drags another iPad tier, iPad Air 2. As per Apple's policy, the company supports devices up to five years after their discontinuation. Assuming nothing changes, Apple can be expected to fix, support, and replace (as needed) 4th generation iPad models up through at least around the end of 2019.

The bottom line: As if they weren't already, the Patriots will be Super Bowl favorites next year should they keep Butler around. The Patriots traded first and third-round picks for Cooks, a second for Ealy, and a fourth for tight end Dwayne Allen.

According to Mashable, one thing needs to be kept in mind that one should not intentionally damage the Apple iPad 4 and then go to the Apple service center with high hopes of getting Apple iPad Air 2 in its place.

The new iPad comes equipped with an A9 chip with 64-bit architecture, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.2-megapixel FaceTime camera, Touch ID, and iOS 10 out of the box.
