Apple CEO Tim Cook released the new Apple Ipad Air 2 in 2014.
Apple is doing this because the company has no stock left of the ageing and now discontinued fourth generation iPad, 9to5Mac website reported on Saturday.
Apple updated that both the iPad 4 and iPad Air 2 will now be available in 32GB of storage.
According to the leaked memo, Apple is has told store employees to inform customers eligible for the replacement about the various colour options available with the iPad Air 2, which shipped in Space Grey, Silver and Gold. If your luck is sky high and were hoping for brand new tablet after your iPad 4 broke down, then you might want to walk towards your nearest Apple Store or an authorized Apple fix outlet. It seems that for a while the iPad Air 2 will be the tablet of those who have problems with the new iPad, something that is far less normal when speaking of a large company of such as Apple.
The iPad Air 2 was discontinued in March following the announcement of the latest iPad, which takes its place and removed the Airs from the iPad lineup. Ipad Air 2 is the most recent version as a substitute of the 4 generation Ipad.
It came as quite the surprise when Apple recently introduced a new generation 9.7-inch iPad model at a lower price point than previous generation models, and with more onboard storage to boot. Apple iPad 4 (wi-fi), Apple iPad 4 (wi-fi cellular). It is now simply named "iPad". The refresh is seemingly aimed at users with old iPad models looking for an upgrade that won't break the bank.
This is a great little move from Apple, as it ensures that users get at least something in return rather than nothing at all.
The new iPad comes equipped with an A9 chip with 64-bit architecture, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.2-megapixel FaceTime camera, Touch ID, and iOS 10 out of the box. Maybe it's time to upgrade - for free!
