    Hi guys - does anyone know if you need an appointment at the Genius Bar when you go to the store to buy AppleCare for an iPad?

    Nope, just go in and buy it. There should be boxes of them on the shelf near the rear. If you can't find one, ask one of the blue shirt salesmen (o saleswomen)

    Thanks, that's what I thought. Was just wondering if you needed an appointment for the inspection.

    No, you should be able to just walk in. You may have to wait a few minutes, depending on how busy they are.

    You can also save the gasoline and call Apple and purchase it over the phone! They send you am email containing a download iOS diagnostics, you click on it, that reads your iPad and voila, purchase made. Easy peasy!

    They didnt even do that for mine - maybe bacsue it was only a week old but after I gave him my serial#, he came back and said "You're all set" and within a week I had my paperwork and digital confirmation within a few hours.

    Easy as pie! :D
