I bought an iPad Air 2 128g and an OtterBox Defender, and the rear camera doesn't quite fit the hole in the back. It's off by almost half the diameter of the hole!

Did Apple move the camera in the iPad Air 2 128g to the left?

This is odd as heck. I've never seen this before...

I've never heard of there being physical (external) differences between different capacities of the same model iPad. That makes no sense.

the case you have was made for the ipad air 1 not the air 2, there are some differences on the location of volume buttons

Sounds like you have the wrong case for your Air 2

Looks like your OtterBox case is for an iPad 2, 3 or 4.

I just discovered that the buttons don't work. Well one does... Odd that Worst Try would pawn off a Air 1 case as a Air 2 case...

All the iPad Air 2s use the same housing.

That's what I thought. Someone in the store (clueless customer?) must have swapped cases at some point. It's going back today.

Odd as heck. Even the front plastic screen protector doesn't fit quite right. Danggit!
