    If I buy an iPad, when does the warranty start? This can be important if I purchase it as a gift because it might be a while before the owner registers it.

    I did a search. Half the answers that pop up are "from the date of purchase" (however that might be defined) and half are "from the date it is registered" (a more precise thing!).

    What is the REAL story?

    The standard warranty starts when the iPad is purchased. If you get AppleCare+, it starts when the AppleCare is registered with Apple. Most of the time these two dates are the same if you purchased AppleCare at the same time you purchased the iPad.

    Here's the online version of the basic warrantee, if you want to wade through it.

    Apple - Legal
