If you recently purchased a new iPad, you may want to try and take advantage of this. Apple has just released another (yes another) iPad. The fourth generation iPad is much better than the previous model and some Apple retail stores are allowing a 30 day exchange window for the newer model.
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. She emphasized that, unless the recently-purchased iPad showed serious signs of wear-and-tear, the usual 14-day return policy would be waived.
“And what about other stores?” You’ll have to call and find out. She explained, “We can’t speak to other stores’ policies — this is something our store has decided to do.”
Let’s hope every Apple Store is on board with this exchange policy. It’s already ridiculous enough that the “new iPad” is already old, so being able to exchange a recently purchased “new iPad” for a new “new iPad” seems fair.
