Recent buyers of the iPad 3 may be able to exchange their slate for the just-unveiled fourth-generation model, reports suggest.

At yesterday’s iPad Mini launch, Apple also lifted the lid on a new top-end tablet informally dubbed the iPad 4. The slate comes a mere eight months after the current-gen iPad 3 hit shop shelves.

According to CNET, staff in Apple stores are placating iPad 3 owners who’ve just bought their slate and feel aggrieved that they’ve been landed with an instantly superannuated tablet an iPad 4 in exchange.

It’s not yet clear if this is a chain-wide policy on the part of Apple, or whether the exchanges being reported were at individual store staff’s discretion.

However, what we do know is that customers who’ve already exchanged their iPad 3 have bought their tablet in the last 30 days and are returning their device sans any obvious damage. So that rules out hucksters chancing their arm.

Apple normally applies a 14-day returns or exchange policy for its shiny objets de desir.

The iPad 4 improves on its predecessor with the addition of an A6X processor that offers twice the pixel-pushing might and super-fast 4G network connectivity. It also includes a better FaceTime front-facing camera and features the same 9-pin port as the iPhone 5, which Apple has adopted in the name of saving space.
