    Just saw the iPad Air 2 at the Apple Store in downtown SF.

    The floor model has 32GB memory. Apple would rather custom make floor models than use a 16GB one. :rolleyes:

    Are you sure it was the Air 2 and not the Air 1?

    Very sure! I double checked because i found it very surprising. Anyway, it had the TouchID button

    Makes sense. The store signs next to each product are custom iPads.

    Why produce hundreds with too much memory for stores?

    I got a response from MacRumors about this. Others might find this info useful too -

    The devices in Apple stores are very special. I would love to know more about what behind the scenes things go on with these devices but there really aren't any sources.

    Considering they're somehow programmed to play a demo after a while, it doesn't surprise me that demo models are special.

    I've read that, at least in the past, all the computers would be wiped and overwritten with new demo image every night. Eliminates any trace of the stuff that people do the computers.

    Don't know if they still do that.

    They are indeed 32GB models, with a little over 20GB free. I didn't think anything of it when I was playing with them in the store.
