Hi everyone, I got my iPad Mini with Retina Display last week and there was a visually distracting piece of dust from under the screen. I went to the Apple Store the next day to see if they could remove the dust but they said that they couldn't do it (much to my dismay as the panel had perfect evenness of color across the screen) but that they would have to give me a new one with a new box and accessories. When the replacement came in, it didn't come in a box and they had to take the SIM card out of the old iPad to put into the new one. I didn't think to ask if it was a refurbished model but now I wonder because when my iPhone was replaced when the lock button stopped working, I received the new one in a similar fashion. I called 1-800-MY-APPLE and they told me they don't have information about identifying new vs. refurbished models by using a serial number. So my question is: do any of you know how to test to see if I have a refurbished model, either by looking at the numbers on the back or by entering the serial number into a website? In the meantime, I'm thinking of going back to ask them at the store when I have time, but it may not be until the 14 day window has expired. TL;DR - Is there a way to know if my iPad is refurbished by looking up the serial number in some database? Thanks for your help!
