Have a broken Apple iPad 4? Apple will replace it with an iPad Air 2
The Apple iPad 4 was launched back in 2012. It was the first of Apple's iOS powered slabs to employ the company's proprietary Lightning port. At the time, it also was a major improvement with double the processing and graphics power compared to the previous model. With inventories of the iPad 4 basically non-existent, Apple doesn't have any more units lying around to replace any busted models.

But don't fret. If you qualify for a replacement slab, Apple will be more than happy to send you 2014's Apple iPad Air 2 instead. An internal memo from Apple that was leaked reads, "Starting March 30th, iPad 4th generation whole unit repairs may be substituted to iPad Air 2." And going from the iPad 4 to the iPad Air 2 should be considered an upgrade. After all, it was the iOS flagship tablet in 2014, powered by the Apple A8X chipset with 2GB of RAM inside. The 9.7-inch screen carries a 1536 x 2048 resolution, and the lights are kept on by a 7340mAh battery. The rear-facing camera weighs in at 8MP with an f/2.2 aperture. A 1.2MP front-facing camera handles selfies and video chats.

The iPad Air 2 measures a svelte 6.1mm thin, 1.4mm thinner than the original Apple iPad Air, and 3.3mm trimmer than the iPad 4. In addition, those turning in a busted iPad 4 could end up with a gold-hued iPad Air 2 since it was the first Apple tablet to come in that color. In addition, the iPad Air 2 comes with 32GB and 128GB of internal storage, which means that turning in the a broken iPad 4 can turn into a total upgrade in every way possible.
