The fourth-generation iPad is here. As previously rumored, Apple has decided to refresh the third-generation iPad introduced back in March. This is a "minor" upgrade and is centered around its new Lightning connector, but it features other hardware improvements as well, making it leap even further ahead of the competition.
Fourth-Generation iPad Features
The fourth-generation iPad's price remains the same: it starts at $499 for the entry level 16 GB, Wi-Fi-only model and $629 for the Wi-Fi+cellular model. However, Apple hasn’t only upgraded the Retina Display iPad with a Lightning connector, as they have also added some fantastic hardware enhancements.
For those who didn't live-stream the Apple event, the fourth-generation iPad will have superior performance with its new Apple A6X chip, which is double the performance of an A5X. In addition, the improved iPad has double the graphics performance when compared to the previous-generation iPad and more importantly, the same 10-hour battery life.
The fourth-generation iPad supports a wider range of LTE networks across the globe as Apple introduces some new carriers, and it also features Wi-Fi connectivity at twice the speed of the previous generation iPad.
With more than 275,000 apps in the App Store designed for the iPad (and counting), this device is sure to be a winner during the holiday season. The fourth-generation iPad also carries a FaceTime HD camera, weighs 652g, and is available from the Apple Store starting today.Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
