    Hey guys. I want to buy a used iPad today and i want to ask you what should i be looking for when checking it out?

    Of course i'll be looking for physical damage, but what else should i check to see if it works?

    Thanks.

    On any device (iPhone/iPad/iPod) running iOS 7, make sure that there’s no activation lock engaged. That is a feature that Apple put into iOS 7 to assist with blocking stolen devices from being reused without authorization. If you are being prompted to enter the iCloud password for the existing user BEFORE it allows you to access/activate the device, RUN the other way. There is no way around this activation lock, and if you bought one with no recourse against the seller, you just bought a paperweight.

    The original iPad, iPhone 3GS (and earlier) and iPod Touch generation 4 (and earlier) are not capable of running iOS 7... but on anything newer than these, beware. Caveat emptor.
