    Hi, a few weeks ago I had to go to the Genius BAr and got my first iPad Pro replaced because of the presence of yellow tint on one half of the screen. My doubt is: is there a way to know if the replacement I recieved is a new one or refurbished?

    I am happy with the unit I got since it seems to have no problems, but still I would really like to know.

    The only difference is the packaging. I usually buy only refurbished products, because of the price.

    Search for the .nl domain serial number checker. Sometimes it suspects when a unit is refurb and states that. The pros might be too new for it to know but it is worth a try.

    Yours may be new because you had it replaced in January. It came out in November and it's unlikely that store had replaced very many pros yet.
