Two weeks ago, I ordered an iPad 2, which was packaged according to the companys meticulous standards. I ended up returning the iPad 2, opting for the iPad 4 instead. I received it yesterday, and noticed something different as soon as I opened it. The shipping box was fine. The Apple box was wrapped in the usual cellophane and was slightly dented. Opening the box, I was surprised to see many bubbles between the unit and the wrapping. There was no typical tab to lift the iPad, and when I pulled it out, it looked like someone had applied screen protector on top, and hadnt done a very good job of it. The back of the iPad was completely bare. Concerned, I inspected the other items in the box. There was no plastic on the power brick OR the USB cable. The cable was bound by a white twist tie. The envelope which normally contains Apple stickers and a safety/warranty booklet included ONLY the quick start guide. I bought the iPad as new in a fulfilled by Amazon situation. I called Amazon to confirm that my order was for a new product. A friend suggested that maybe Apple had relaxed its packaging standards, but Im wondering now whether the product was actually used. Would you be concerned if you received a new Apple product packaged this way?
