    Worth a try. The Apple Store can only say no, and you'll be no worse off.

    I notice from your other thread that you are jailbroken. Better make sure there's no evidence of that or they won't even look at you.

    It is not possible to make changes to the hardware of any iPad, or indeed, most Apple equipment. That's why it's important to make sure you are buying the model you really want going in. Even something that is normally simple, such as adding RAM, is impossible on most Apple computers.

    Just closed your other thread which asks pretty well the same question. To answer more completely, there is no iPad mini 2 yet, although we suspect that a model will surface sooner or later with retina display and 128Gb storage. Nothing official about that though. It's just an educated guess.

    It's pretty doubtful/ I don't know what the timeframe is for equipment exchanges, but given that the mini 2 doesn't exist yet and your mini is already three months old, I assume you will be well outside the time for exchanges.

    Why not either give it to say a relative or sell it when it comes out?

    Exactly what I have done, all my iPads are wifi only (saving me roughly £100 for each) and I have a mifi which is pocket sized and provides connectivity whenever and wherever I need it.

    Not entirely correct, on iDevices you can't make changes but aside from my MBA, I have changed RAM and/or HD's in all of my other Apple Computers......they don't make it easy because they make everything so svelte but it certainly can be done.

    Can you do any upgrades to a 2011 MBA? Mine is all solid state.
