    guys - it looks like my ipad 2 is finally caving - it won't recognize touches on some parts of the screen (sometimes the keyboard) and a fresh IOS install did not help. Is there any way to fix that issue?

    If not, is there any place where I can buy a new ipad 10-inch that offers a trade-in for ipad 2?

    Thanks

    Best Buy. I would look for an iPad Air 2 that's on sale for at least $299 and trade-in the one you have.

    Swappa tends to to be more reliable these days, even over eBay. And there are plenty of sale prices to save money.

    It's getting pretty difficult to find any retailers still selling new iPad Air 2. As far as trade in goes, I have had good luck with Amazon.

    Are you still covered by a warranty, e.g., an extended warranty provided by a credit card? If so, you can make a warranty claim that will cover a replacement by Apple, as long as there is no damage that they'll use to deny the claim.

    I have an iPad Mini that I purchased in Jan 2014. I had Applecare+ and purchased the iPad with an Amex so I'm covered until this month. My iPad started acting up, I made a claim to AmEx, and they issued me a check for the cost of replacement.

    Oh, sorry, forget it. You said iPad 2 but people were talking about iPad Air 2 so I got confused thinking you had an Air 2.

    Bring it into Apple. See what they say. It might be covered. If not, Apple does have a trade in program where they give you a discount on a new iPad based on your old one. You can do it online...but I always prefer going into the Apple Store and dealing with a human. You might get lucky and get a good deal.
