    My iPad2 screen has really bad light-leakage and yellow tint. I took it in once, and they said they wouldn't replace it until the issue is fixed, which it is now. When I get my new iPad, can I ask Apple for the black one? I have the white one, which I kinda regret getting lol.

    You can ask, but Apple's policy is to replace with the same color.

    Unfortunately not. They will replace it.. not 'swap' it -- you'll get lovely white :apple:

    As already posted Apple replaces items under warranty like for like. They will just give you another white one.

    Unless you were in the 30-day return window you'll never be able to swap colors at the Apple Store.

    I'm interested in what you say about the issue now being fixed.

    Have the Apple store actually told you this?

    Its solved

    I talked to the Apple Store yesterday they switched the screens to Toshiba or Samsung, one of those companies. However I've heard the newer screens are warmer.
