iPad 4th-Gen Devices Brought in for Service to Begin Getting Replaced with Newer iPad Air 2

A note obtained by 9to5Mac suggests Apple will soon replacing customers’ fourth-generation iPads brought in for service with newer iPad Air 2s. The iPad 4 was originally announced back in 2012 while the Air 2 was released in 2014, so customers will be getting a pretty worthy upgrade in this case.

Starting March 30th, iPad 4th generation whole unit repairs may be substituted to iPad Air 2.

Apple is also instructing employees to make customers aware that the fourth-gen iPad and iPad Air 2 come in different storage configurations, whereas the iPad 4 features 16 or 64GB of space while the Air 2 comes in 32 or 128GB. This means that alongside the overall upgrade, customers will also get a bump in storage space which is also nice.

This news comes as Apple’s stock of iPad 4th-gens dwindles while they attempt to clear out their Air 2 inventory. If you recall, the Air 2 was replaced with a newer 9.7-inch model announced last month. You can see why Apple may wanna make some room for newer products.
