What is with the sense of entitlement some seem to have around here? People expect Apple to just upgrade users to the latest version for free?
I have a 64 GB Verizon 3rd gen and I was wondering if they've been known to swap it out for a 4th gen?
Just wondering... not that I really want one.
Judging by the OP's response to IEvolution on entitlement - yep the OP is feeling entitled and is checking around to see if in fact 4s are given as replacements for 3s. OPs wording is clear.
I think it would be refreshing to zip it with the holier than thou "entitlement" rant that's been rehashed to a point of exhaustion by many, many, many users on this forum. Be your own person. Hell, even use a synonym.
Did I say anything about wanting one? No. I was just wondering. Do I feel "entitled" to one? No.
Did I say, "I should get one because apple HAS to?" Absolutely not. Are you overreacting? Probably.
I was wondering what they do, so if I get mine replaced, I'll know if I need to have an extra charger or not. Is that what you wanted to know so that you can sleep better at night knowing that Apple, a multi-billion dollar business, will save $600 (and probably not even close to that)?
And it actually has happened, believe it or not, judging from the many posts on this forum.
I'm not just singling you out, it's a ton of people on here who are so quick to attack about a sense of "entitlement" when it's unwarranted.
I'm sure if they swapped every ipad 3 for an ipad 4, they'd lose alot more than 600$.
Generally it costs $350 to make an iPad. Add all the extra internals that I paid for and the Apple Care that I paid for, will maybe come up to $550.
I paid over $1000 altogether for this iPad.
And if they were to give me a 4th gen, the only thing different is the processor. Which I'm sure doesn't cost more than $100.
And who mentioned EVERY iPad 3?
If they swap one persons ipad 3 for an ipad 4, it won't stop there. More people will demand an ipad 4 for their ipad 3.
That doesn't sound right.Well I just had to shell out money to upgrade to iPad 4. If you get a free upgrade to the 4 I'm going to file a complaint with my state representative.
What doesn't sound right? Most people have to spend money to upgrade to the latest device. I returned the iPad mini within the 14 day period after I bought it, and paid the $180 difference to upgrade to the iPad 4.
