We were warning pretty much everyone we knew for months that if they hadn’t bought an iPad yet, it was a sucker move not to wait until Apple at least announced the new one… but if you or one of your friends is one of those unfortunates who caved to temptation within the last two weeks, good news: Apple will give you a partial refund for your brand new but now obsolete first-gen iPad.
Apple’s handling it the same way as they handle their refund process for Macs that have been obsoleted within a couple of weeks of a new revision being announced: just go into your local Apple Store or call up Apple, prove you bought your iPad within the past fourteen days, and they’ll give you a refund of $100, €100, or £100.
Giving refunds on obsoleted products is one of the nicer things Apple does. I mean, yeah, it’d be nicer if they actually allowed you to return your iPad, but hey, what are they going to do with them now?
