If you’ve pre-ordered an iPad, then odds are you’re comfortable with whatever terms Apple has to offer for the device come April 3rd.
Recently, the company stepped forward to assure users that if your new iPad’s battery arrives as defective, Apple will replace it.
According to Macworld UK, Apple posted a recent FAQ stating that if your iPad “requires service due to the battery’s diminished ability to hold an electrical charge,” for US$99 and a US$6.95 shipping fee.
Apple added, “Your iPad is not eligible for Battery Replacement Service if the product has been damaged, for example, as result of an accident, liquid contact, disassembly, unauthorized service or unauthorized modifications, or if the product is not operating correctly as a result of a component failure.”
Apple warns that replacement iPads won’t come with any of your personal information and suggests you sync your old device with iTunes to backup your data before sending it in.
The company stated the service could be done within a week if arranged by calling Apple Technical Support.
