    Hi all need advice. I did a dead pixel test and found a dead pixel right at the middle of the screen. Also there is some small dust particle under the glass. Will i be getting a replacement with the issues described? If i do get one is there any change that they will replace mine with a 4th gen?

    No, if they exchange it, you're supposed to get the model that you already have.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Apple will replace your iPad for dead pixels and your replacement will be the same model you already have.

    Apple has been doing upgrades to the new iPad depending on when you bought yours.......I believe the timeline was within 30 days of purchase and you will need to pay whatever difference there is on price. No harm in asking if your iPad was recently purchased.

    G'day and also welcome to the forum. Just wondering, how does one carry out a "dead pixel test"? Deep down I'm not sure I want to know if any of my pixels have died

    Use an image that is completely full screen white then look for the black dot.
