    Hello, I am completely new to the Apple world but out of curiosity bought a new unopened iPad from ebay that the owner supposedly had won as a prize in a competition. I have some suspicions that the GPS hardware might be shaky and I have been told that Apple provides one year of warranty but how do I claim as I did not receive any receipt in the transaction?

    I could not locate any general Apple warranty statement in the unopened box
    so I am a bit perplexed. Does the iPad contain a special warranty number within? I could tell that a certain device number was registered in iTunes but that is probably not it?

    Dumb question I know but I am completely new to the Apple world.

    what iPad do you speak of?

    apple store has the best customer support available, with little to none/no questions asked service, and you could be leaving the store with a new device, even with showing up without a receipt.

    so a simple walk in(make a reservation online), and explain your issue, and they will handle it properly.

    wow, this is weird "I have some suspicions that the GPS hardware might be shaky".
