What is iPad Battery Replacement Service?
If your iPad requires service due to the battery’s diminished ability to hold an electrical charge, Apple will replace your iPad for a service fee.

Note: Your iPad is not eligible for Battery Replacement Service if the product has been damaged, for example, as result of an accident, liquid contact, disassembly, unauthorized service or unauthorized modifications, or if the product is not operating correctly as a result of a component failure. Please review Apple’s Repair Terms and Conditions for further details.


Will the data on my iPad be preserved?
No. 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.

ここの英文では “You will receive “a” replacement iPad”となっているので、自分のものがそのまま返ってくるというよりは新しい物が送られてくると仮定したほうがよさそうだ。シールとかデコしてたらどうなるんだろう?(任天堂みたいにそっくりそのまま、という訳にはいかなそうだ)

Mac Rumosは下記のような見出しでサービスを説明しているのだが、記事の投稿から1日経って、コメントや評価欄はすでにプチ炎上状態だ。
