Just bought a third-gen iPad? Apple might replace it with iPad 4 for free

In case you are reading this article, you are most likely an owner of the new iPad that isn't that new anymore. That's because Apple just announced a newer, upgraded version of its 9.7-inch tablet, with a faster processor, enhanced wireless connectivity, and a better front-facing cam. Now you are probably cursing Apple for bringing an upgraded model only 7 months after unveiling the previous one, but word on the street has it that you might be entitled to a free replacement, under certain conditions, of course...

How is this an example of good customer service? Like most businesses, Apple has a 30 day return policy already in place as long as the product is in new condition. They are just rewording their own policy to make it look like they are doing something good for the customer.

And is this return option will be in all countries and all shops??
Then apple will not make money at all!
And what if someone own an Ipad3 31 days??ohh yeah,, it is very old to give it back!

I don't think so, it's b-c of 30 day trial period, you can return the iPad 3 anyway.

First lets see if its true. I'm as skeptical about this as a Foxconn employee is about a raise.

There will be one more iPad3 on eBay soon, time to switch to an Android tablet.

i think the reason why apple is releasing iPad 4 and iPad mini is that they want to flood the market like android do..
27. someones4 (Posts: 608; Member since: 16 Sep 2012)
they can't compete with android in terms of volume or quantity

i call bollocks. Apple is way too cheap for such a promo.

It'd be better if they swap the iPad for nexus 7 hahahaha

if that is true it is really and truly an awesome move from apple to keep the customers interested and feeling they are being loved and cared for.
i wish it was a little longer though maybe like 3 to 4 months then it would have been a nail on the coffin.
but still big up to apple for doing it up even a monthly period. and it is justified with the amount people spill on their products anyways.

What's the problem for Apple, they are taking the ipad 3 replacing it with ipad4 and selling refurbished ipad3 for 379$...either way good deal for apple...

Android is a kids play ground with no life, widget this, widget that, for what? Like i said is it a child's phone.
