    As I previously said in several threads I'm completely satisfied with my iPad 3.
    It does exactly what I want and I thoroughly enjoy it............also, I have no complaints with Apple releasing a new model so quickly.

    With that said...
    I thought for the heck of it I'd call the apple store where I purchased it and see what they say about upgrading to the iPad 4.
    If I could upgrade to the iPad 4 with no additional cost to me it would be silly not to.

    Stats...
    9/23/12: Purchased iPad 3 (32GB) @ Mall of America Apple Store
    10/3/12: Exchanged @ Apple store for iPad 3 (64GB)....$100 upgrade plus I also purchased AppleCare +
    10/24/12: After calling I returned iPad 3 (64GB) for full refund....they also refunded my $99 for AppleCare + :D

    No questions were asked....they completely refunded all money spent in full.

    I will now order an iPad 4 (64GB) as soon as possible (supposed to be able to pre-order on Friday 10/26). :thumbs:

    I guess you can't really beat that for a deal. Much more difficult to do that in my city as we have no official Apple store here. And some of the morons in the several accredited Apple resalers here wouldn't have a clue about what I was talking about a swap.

    Well done. I guess we'll be seeing you on the Ipad 4 forum soon?:D

    Thanks....
    If it would of cost me anything I would of said forget it as it wouldn't of been worth it for me.
    But if it's an even trade up then it's a no-brainer.

    Yup, I'll have to change my bookmarks to iPad4 forum. :)

    Good for you. I would have done the same, but I'm totally happy since I have been using mine every day since I got it in March 2012.

    Really?.. It's no return.. No exchange her in our country! Even in apple store.. So it's really hard to upgrade a new device when you want it! And it's very expensive her because of taxes.... ...

    Reliable source?
    A lot of debate here............many feel this is their new release time-frame for the iPad.
    It may be another year before you see the iPad 5.

    I doubt there is a reliable source for this kind of info. Apple will roll out the next version of the iPad whenever the competition seems the be gaining ground if they have the ability. It may well be next October, but it certainly could be sooner if Apple perceives that they can profit from a release sooner than that.

    Apple and only Apple has the answers to the time line for release of any products. The 4 th generation iPad was a speed bump with a few add ons. Based on the history one could expect the next update around March 2013.

    I knew about the mini iPad prior to release and knew the scheduled release date because I know analysts who work for apple. They may not know what the product looks like, even though I do know someone who is testing one of several versions of the next iPhone who won't tell me a thing, but they do know when the product is scheduled for realise.
