Thinking 6 months in advance. But I want to pay $99 for ipad 3 (new ipad) battery replacement even though it's under warranty. Is this possible? I assume they are still giving iPad REPLACEMENTS (refurbs) with each battery exchange? Reason is fairly obvious. I got a couple of nicks on the corners and it's starting to drive me crazy. Nothing major. But I like my new iPad perfect. My kid has my ipad 2 in a griffin military case and it's fine. But I use a super thin case and somehow I have noticed 2 minor dings on the top edges of new ipad. So will Apple let me request a battery replacement even if it's under warranty? Cause Apple will send out a replacement ipad with a battery replacement (unless they changed their policy that I didn't know about.
