    I just bought a new ipad 3 on Friday and now I see that the 4 is coming out, I would like to exchange mine for the 4 but want to make sure the case I bought for the 3 will fit it. Does anyone know if the dimensions have changed? The case is the spigen valentinus case, if that makes a difference. Also, when will the 4 likely be available in the apple stores?

    You will be fine all the changes are internal. But I would return it today because there's a 14 day return policy.

    The only exterior change in the iPad 4 is the new lightning connector/charging socket. An iPad 3 case will fit the iPad 4 perfectly.

    If I were to return my 3, what happens to my apple care plan, would I need to purchase a new one for the 4?

    As far as I can determine, you can transfer your AppleCare plan to a new device.Apple customer service should be able to help.

    I returned my iPad 3 today and they refunded the price of the iPad and also the price of the AppleCare +

    When available, I will purchase the iPad 4 and AppleCare + and it will cost me no further $$ out of my pocket.

    Well I returned the ipad to the apple store today, problem is that the "genius" returned it to my Barclaycard before I had a chance to tell him to put it on store credit. My Barclaycard has not arrived in the mail yet. So a quick fund transfer onto my debit card and I have a ipad 4 32gig ordered. It has been in processing status for about 4 hours now, anyone know if there is any change in status before it ships? Or will it just show as processing until 11/1 or whenever they send them out?

    You guys got me all excited with the "change in dimensions" title.

    Thought it was a space / time continuum thing happening. ;)

    Carry on.

    Mine just updated. Another down side to being awake while the world sleeps, orders update slower :)
