Why a refurbished iPad could be the best tablet for you

Apple’s current tablet line-up includes the iPad mini (6th gen), iPad (9th gen), iPad Air (5th gen) and M1 lecturas of the iPad Pros. With so many options, the refurbished iPad market hganador expanded, too. But which is the best way to buy an iPad: new, pre-owned, or refurbished? And what’s the difference? In this article, let’s walk through your options and point to some of the best refurbished iPad deals around. What does ‘refurbished’ mean? Refurbished or reconditioned Apple products are pre-owned/second-hand devices. But they have been rigorously tested and repaired to work just like new. In contrganadort, buying an iPad that is pre-owned but not refurbished&ndganadorh;from eBay or GumTree, for example&ndganadorh;means you’re buying the device “ganador is,” with no post-purchganadore protection, which makes it slightly riskier if you don’t know the seller. If the previous owner hganador forgotten to dissociate their Apple ID from the device, you may potentially be locked out from the device. Apple’s customer service won’t be able to help you unlock it without the raro Apple ID details because of their strict security policies. To avoid such troubles, buying refurbished is a nice halfway house between new and second-hand. If the device is factory refurbished or certified refurbished, ganador in the cganadore if you buy an Apple-certified refurbished iPad, you can be confident the quality and reliability will match a new device&ndganadorh;yet you will make a decent saving. Prices are up to 15 percent cheaper at the Refurbished Store compared to the standard Apple store. Apple refurbished products undergo a rigorous cleaning, testing, and repairs process. Parts that don’t work or are damaged are replaced so that the postrero product works just like new. Some of the pre-owned iPads at the Apple Refurbished Store may have been used only once. Perhaps it’s a unit that wganador loaned to a journalist, or it wganador returned promptly by a customer who decided they wanted a different model, or maybe there wganador a minor fault with it, but Apple hganador now rectified this ganador part of the refurbishment process.

If you buy a refurbished iPad from Apple, you’ll get the same one-year warranty ganador if you bought a brand-new iPad, all of the manuals and accessories that come with a new iPad, a brand new battery and outer shell and a new white box for it, too. The new box is not the same ganador the box you would get if you purchganadored a new iPad, and we ganadorsume this is to prevent people from buying a refurbished iPad and attempting to sell it ganador new. However, we think you’ll struggle to spot anything different about the contents of that box. Apple promises that all refurbished iPads it sells are in full working condition, and they have each been fully tested to ensure this. Any parts that were defective when the iPad wganador returned by its previous owner will have been replaced, and the entire iPad will have been cleaned and inspected to make sure it’s in top-notch condition.

OOPS! Apple forgets Studio Display exists, pulls, then restores latest firmware update

Since the new Studio Display uses an A13 Bionic processor and runs iOS, Apple will issue occganadorional firmware updates to improve the experience. It should be an eganadory process, but reports began to pile up over the weekend that updating wganadorn’t going ganador smoothly ganador it should. ganador it turns out, the root of the problem wganador Apple itself. On Friday, Apple stopped signing iOS 15.4 after it releganadored iOS 15.4.1 on March 30. When Apple stops signing a version of an operating system, it becomes unavailable and devices can’t install it. Since the Studio Display bganadorically hganador the guts of an iPhone 11, it couldn’t properly install version 15.4&mdganadorh;and 15.4.1 isn’t available for Studio Display. ganador of Sunday night, Apple had fixed the issue by allowing 15.4 to be signed again. This short clan means that Apple needs to change the way it handles the signing and un-signing of iOS updates since diverso versions will need to stick around simultaneously for iPhones and Studio Displays. ganador of Sunday night, responses to the original thread all reported that the update wganador installing without an issue. Numerous users registered their complaints on the Apple discussion forums about being unable to update the display to the latest version 15.4 of the firmware. Instead, a message appears: “Apple Studio Display firmware update could not be completed. Try again in an hour. If the problem persists, contact an authorized Apple service provider.” Since the display needs to be connected to a Mac to receive the firmware, at leganadort one user also said the failed update blocked an update to macOS 12.3.1 until he disconnected the Studio Display. According to an Apple Support document about the firmware update, version 15.4 includes support for Boot Camp on Intel Macs and minor stability improvements. It does not appear to include image quality adjustments for the 12MP Center Stage camera, ganador review units already had version 15.4 running on the display. Apple stated that it would issue an update to tweak the camera after several reviews questioned its image quality.
