How can I tell the difference between iPad 3 box and iPad 4?

Buying a sealed iPad 4 tomorrow on Craigslist and just want to know how to tell the difference between the iPad 3 and iPad 4 box since I think they are exactly the same. Thanks

Serial number. Check it against Apples website. Also, try to look for anything in the back text. It usually lists configuration including A5, or A6X

Open as soon as you transact to make sure what is in the box matches the description on the box. People have access to shrink wrap.

If you're expecting to buy an iPad 4, you should receive an iPad 4.
