This means that users may lose all their saved settings and contacts while requesting for a battery replacement. Apple explains:
“You will receive a replacement iPad that will not contain any of your personal data. Before you submit your iPad for service, it is important to sync your iPad with iTunes to back up your contacts, calendars, email account settings, bookmarks, apps, etc. Apple is not responsible for the loss of information when servicing your iPad.”
The iPad Battery Replacement Service comes at a cost of $99 with an additional $6.95 for shipping. The service does not cover devices that have their batteries damaged due to accident, liquid contact, disassembly, unauthorized service or unauthorized modifications.
Customers wishing to avail the service can contact the Apple technical support, local Apple retail store or authorized service providers. The entire replacement process is expected to take close to one week's time.
We will have to wait for someone tear down the iPad when it's available to find out why Apple has opted to go with this approach rather simply swapping a new battery in customer's existing iPad. I also think Apple will send a refurbished iPad rather than a new iPad.
What do you think? Let us know your thoughts.
