Today, Apple has presented the new(er) iPad, along with other products, such as the much expected iPad Mini and the new iMac. The 4th Generation iPad comes as an updated iPad 3 (wow, such a surprise…) that will perform much better than the old one, which was released hardly 6 months back. The new iPad has some cool upgrades that will surely be to the liking of Apple fans, specially those who didn’t buy the 3rd gen iPad.

4th Gen iPad – Features

One of the biggest design changes that users will notice is the new Lightning connector (theoretically, it can be much better than the market standard Micro-USB). What this means is that users of the old generation iPad that want to upgrade their device will have a bunch of useless accessories around the house. Apart from this, the 4th Generation iPad has more upgrades under its hood. Here are some of new features:

  • 9.7 inch Retina Display
  • HD front facing camera (1.2 MP with 720p recording) with face detection
  • 5MP iSight rear camera capable of recording 1080p video and face detection
  • A6X processor (twice the performance in CPU)
  • Twice the graphics performance as previous devices
  • LTE connectivity (more carriers, including Sprint)
  • Upgraded WiFi (some say it will work twice as fast)
  • 10 hours of battery life

A full list of features can be seen at the Apple website, where you can make a comparison between the iPad models.

4th Gen iPad – Pricing

Apple has announced that the 4 Generation iPad will keep the old prices, so those interested in flocking in front of an Apple store these days will have to put down $499 for the 16GB version, $599 for the 32GB and $699 for the 64GB version. This is good news, because those who wanted to buy it will pay for it exactly as they would for the old device and get much more power from it.

Where to buy?

At the moment, the online store is offline for maintenance, they are adding the new device, but in a very short time, it will widely available for purchasing from your local store. We all know that the Apple products make their way to the shelves in a matter of a few days.

I often wonder, where is technology heading? What do all of these advances mean for us and for our future? I sometimes miss the days when I didn’t know how to use a floppy disk, or how a computer CPU works, but now, until I find an answer to my questions, I’ll keep tracking these advances and show everything I find to those who share my interests.
