For those of you who were watching it, Apple made a whole slew of announcements for 5 new products which pack a whole load of stuff. So Apple refreshed their current iPad with a new one. This announcement comes just under half a year after the announcement of the iPad 3. As you would expect it has the same retina display as the iPad 3. However, the CPU on it is the new A6X CPU with twice the amount of CPU performance and graphics power as the iPad 3. You will also get a HD Facetime camera on the front, a lightning connector to replace the old 30-pin connector and a 5MP iSight camera on the back of the device. You will still get 10 hours of battery life on this tablet when browsing the web over wi-fi or 9 hours when browsing over 3G or 4G(depending on if you have 4G in your country). On the software side, it ships with iOS 6(the latest version of iOS) right out of the box.
So what about pricing, you will be able to get it in both black and white(same price for both). Well, starting with the Wi-Fi model you will be able to get the 16GB version for £399, the 32GB version for £479 or the 64GB version for £559.
You can also get an iPad with cellular connectivity meaning you will be able to stay connected on the go. You can get the Wi-Fi + cellular in a 16GB version for £499, the 32GB version for £479 or the 64GB version(the top of the range) for £659.
The 4th Generation iPad(which we shall refer to as the iPad 4) will be available for pre-order on October 26th 2012. It will release on 2nd November 2012(1 week after the pre-order date).
