    Purchased a brand new sealed in a box iPad Air on Black Friday at Staples.

    When I got home and opened the box, I noticed that when I pealed off the clear seal there was what appears to be the left over of a round greenish/blue sticker at the bottom near the right side of the speaker.

    Has anyone encountered this before? Is this a potential factory refurb? Should I return this iPad?

    Any advice, suggestions would be appreciated.

    Cheers!

    As Freud said, sometimes a sticker is just a sticker...

    If it's all good just keep it and enjoy it and congrats on your new iPad.

    Actually Apple doesn't allow stickers on their products.:confused:

    Maybe they use the sticker inside the factory to denote what kind of iPad it is or something for sorting.

    I bought one on Launch Day and the outside of the Apple Box (underneath the plastic) was dirty and the inside of the box was dirty. There was also a small scratch on the back of the Ipad. Took it back, exchanged it for another one only to find a stupid dead pixel. Took that one back, and bought one on Black Friday which was flawless.

    Thanks for the responses everyone.

    I still haven't removed the plastic yet and the sticker is still there.

    I'm going to take a pic of the sticker and will post it later.

    ...Thinking that I'm going to get this exchanged.

    Cheers!
