Apple has made yet another surprise by announcing the fourth-generation iPad. We’re expected to some changes to the third-gen, which includes the Lightning dock connector and a more efficient battery life, but we aren’t perfect about so many changes.
This news can change everyone’s mind, like replacing their iPad 3 with the latest iPad 4, means you can return your third-gen iPad arrived in March and purchased it from Apple Store in the last fourteen days, from a dealer if you’re within that dealer’s return period. And you’re beyond the return period, you can have the chance to sell your current iPad to get money to buy a new iPad model with Retina display. Check details after the jump!
If you’re one of those people rocking a third-generation iPad, then you won’t be aware of Apple had decided to break the mold and release an iPad with significant upgrades on an iteration released just eight or so months back. Apple offering some solace to those who’ve recently bought their own iPad 3, it now looks like the company could offer a free upgrade to anybody whose device is 30 days old or else.
However, it’s not confirmed all stores are participating, but some customers have been contacting their local stores, and it appears the Stockton Street store in San Francisco – now at least let owners of the third-generation iPad swap their device for the fourth-generation iPad – provided it has been bought within the last 30 days.
The c30-days period would be great for those who have owned an iPad, but doesn’t really offer any consolation to those who purchased theirs two months ago, or earlier than that. Means, if you bought your own iPad 3rd-gen a three months back, then, you’re out of the opfferings.
The manager at the Stockton Street store in San Francisco explained that “this specific store” would allow purchasers of the third-generation iPad to exchange their device for the fourth-generation iPad if purchased within the last 30 days.
Along with the iPad mini dropping, Apple will simply wait for the next Fall to release the latest next-iPad mainly. The third-gen had the Retina display, quad-core graphics chip and plenty of zip, and a minor refresh could have added the Lightning connector though.
We’ll keep you updated with regards to the purported 30-day money back guarantee offer. Stay tuned! (via CNet)
