    I want to know if any of you guys got your iPad 2 fixed through Apple care (Refurbished iPad 2)

    My iPad Had a backlight bleeding issues, I know almost everyone had the same problem. I bought it in March since I have to wait for a while like 2 weeks so I didn't replace it. I know I can get it fix within a year.

    My question is how long does it take and is the bleeding problem fixed?

    Cheers

    Wow. What an awesome service!! Are you in US?

    I'm in New Zealand and we don't have an Apple Store here :(, we have to goto Apple authorised shop to get it fix.

    They told me I have to gave up my iPad for 2 weeks AT LEAST, until the new unit arrive :(

    Apple care is came with every iPad within 1 year. Only if you want to extend it otherwise you don't have to buy it.
