The owners of the fourth generation iPad, which will need to replace the device under warranty, will give a more modern iPad Air 2. It is reported by 9to5Mac, citing informed sources.
iPad 4 was launched in October 2012. The device has a 2-core A6X processor, clocked at 1.4 GHz, and is equipped with 4-core graphics. In 2013 Apple released a modification with 128 GB of memory.
IPad Air 2 debuted in October 2014, two years after the iPad 4. The device is based on 64-bit A8X chip, which performance is substantially superior to the A6X, and feature a fingerprint scanner. Despite such a significant difference in performance between models, Apple decided to change iPad 4 iPad Air 2.
iPad 4 was sold with a memory 16 and 64 GB. Under the replacement program on iPad Air 2 customers of Apple can get the devices with 32 and 128 GB of internal memory. Pretty generous move on the part of the manufacturer.
If Apple can’t fix the iPad 4 will replace it with a iPad Air 2. The service technician was instructed to replace at no additional charge.
