Apple is purportedly replacing broken iPad 4 models with new iPad Air 2 units.
If your device is broken and you've sent it over to Apple for replacement, you are in for luck as the newer device has so many goodies compared to the aged variant. Apple Insider has clarified that this is not a hard-line policy from Apple, rather store managers can decide if an in-stock iPad 4, iPad Air, or iPad Air 2 is used as a replacement for servicing.

The move to replace the broken units at the cost of the service fix is at the discretion of the store managers.
