Just received my refurbished mini 2 yesterday. Stock with 7.1.2, probably because it is refurbished. New ipad mini shld come with latest ios. Anyway I updated to 8.1. Running good so far.

I spoke to the Apple staff via the online chat platform before, she told me that the older generations of iPads bought from the online store will be loaded with the latest iOS. I didn't ask about refurbished ones though.

Hi all

Any idea where did apple stores get their refurnished set?

I saw from almost all selling floor that the ipad mini 2 screen got problem. It is brighter at the bottom of the screen right above the charging port and dimmer at the right side. I asked the sales person, some told me that they can't tell there is any light problem on screen. Some told me because customers mishandling and the display set been there since day 1. I asked them why ipad air no such issue, they unable to tell....

That's sad. Was it obvious? Yours new or refurbished?
