Apple to Start Replacing 4th Gen iPads Brought in for Service with iPad Air 2

According to a new report from 9to5Mac, Apple customers who bring in their fourth generation iPad in for service at Apple Stores might soon get their unit replaced with an iPad Air 2.

Apple typically replaces models brought in for servicing and as available stock declines. According to an internal memo, the company told its employees that they unit “may be substituted to the iPad Air 2.”

The memo also instructs employees to inform customers that the iPad had some slightly different storage options: 32GB and 128GB, while the fourth generation iPad was available in 16GB and 64GB. This means that users may also get an upgrade in storage.

In March, Apple discontinued the iPad Air 2 in favour of a new 9.7 inch version (which is just called “iPad”).
