    Default Apple International Warranty?

    Hello fellow iMore fans! I'm planning of buying an iPad Mini and I live in South Korea. Instead of getting it here, I'm thinking of asking my friend to get it for me because it's around $100 cheaper, but I'm wondering about warranty if I get an Apple product outside of my country. Do you think I can get international warranty for the iPad Mini? Should I just risk it and buy it even if it doesn't have international warranty or should I pay the extra cost and just get it in in Korea when it's out? Thank you in advance to those who leave helpful advices. Please share your opinion!

    That doesn't really answer my questions, but thanks anyway.

    Default Apple International Warranty?

    I've had iPhones purchased in the US, Malaysia and Singapore serviced and exchanged in the US, Mexico, Canada, Malaysia and Singapore without any authorized Apple service center ever asking for anything special.
