Hi. First post after a long time lurking. I have the opportunity to buy a perfect cosmetic condition iPad 3 that apparently has a dead battery. Won't boot. Starts and shuts down immediately. Will apparently go into dfu mode when connected to iTunes but won't restore. Now it's over 12 months old, but in Australia Apple is required by law to offer a two year warranty. If I buy it and take it to the local apple authorised store (who process warranty claims on apples behalf as there is no apple store in my state), will they simply check that the battery is shot and process a claim, or will they want to know the Apple ID that it's currently linked to? At this point I don't know if it's on iOS 6 or 7 and if it's on 7 the there is no way to turn off find my phone because it won't boot or restore. I Imagine find my phone is irrelevant if it won't boot anyway. What do you reckon, will Apple (or their rep) be fussed that it's not registered to my Apple ID?
