    Hello everyone.
    My iPad Air 2 will be arriving today and I was wondering what sort of things should I look for to make sure it's not a defective one? I've never owned an iPad before or any other tablet for that matter.

    My best advice is: "if you don't see it, it's not there". No assembly line electronics will ever be perfect. Someone can claim a perfect product and someone else could find a problem. It all boils down to your tolerance and OCD levels.

    So just use it. If something bothers you then get it exchanged. Don't go looking for problems that will bother someone else but not YOU ! ;)

    It should be wrapped in a white box and the iPad should have an Apple logo on the back panel. ^^

    Just use it, if something is wrong, you'll know it. If you go looking for issues, you're bound to find some...

    No reasons to look for defective as long as iPad just work fine. :apple:

    Take it out of the box and start using it. If there are any problems you will see them, but it is very unlikely that you will have an issue that actually effects your use and enjoyment of it.
