Well it may not have a new name, but the 3rd-generation iPad incorporates a breakthrough Retina display with 3.1 million pixels, a 5MP iSight camera that can record 1080p HD video, and ultrafast AX5 processing technology. Pick up this iPad and suddenly, it™s clear. You'e actually touching your photos, reading a book, and playing the piano. Nothing comes between you and what you love. To make that hands-on experience even better, Apple has made the fundamental elements of iPad better. All of which makes the new, third-generation iPad capable of so much more than you ever imagined.
The best display ever on a mobile device.
Everything you do with iPad, you do through its large, beautiful display. And when the display is better, the entire iPad experience is better. The Retina display on the 3rd-generation iPad features a 2048-by-1536 resolution, 44 percent greater color saturation, and an astounding 3.1 million pixels ” in the same 9.7-inch space. That™s four times the number of pixels in iPad 2 and a million more than an HDTV. Those pixels are so close together; your eyes can™t discern individual ones at a normal viewing distance. When you can™t see the pixels, you see the whole picture, or article, or game, in ways you never could before
Breakthrough technology. For a breakthrough display.
In order to create a display with four times the pixels, Apple designers had to create it in a completely new way. You see, every pixel in a display has multiple signals telling it when to light up. But when you have a lot of pixels and a lot of signals on the same plane, signals get crossed and image quality suffers. To make sure everything on the new iPad looks crystal clear, Apple engineers elevated the pixels onto a different plane ” separating them from the signals. It™s technology that™s breakthrough. Just like the 3rd-generation iPad itself.
The A5X chip with quad-core graphics drives four times the pixels of iPad 2 yet it delivers the same smoothness and fluidity iPad is known for. Even with all that extra oomph, this iPad still gets an amazing 10 hours of battery life.
More Power on display.
The Retina display on the iPad wouldn™t be possible without the powerful A5X chip. It drives power to every one of the 3.1 million pixels in the display. And its quad-core graphics processing makes everything you do on your iPad feel incredibly responsive. From the little things like swiping, scrolling, and pinching to the big things like editing photos in iPhoto, applying filters and transitions in iMovie, and, of course, playing games.
Instant on. Touch and go.
You use your iPad all the time, maybe for a few minutes here, an hour or so there, and each time you press the Home button or open the Smart Cover, it™s ready to go. Instantly. That™s the work of flash storage. It™s fast and reliable, so you can get to your apps and do whatever you need to do, pronto.
Battery life spread.
The 3rd-generation iPad features a Retina display with four times the pixels of iPad 2 and quad-core graphics. How much of an effect does that have on battery life? Almost none. You still get up to 10 hours of power to read, watch, play, write, and create whatever you want, all you want.
Shoot 5-megapixel still images.
The 5-megapixel iSight camera features a backside illumination sensor that captures great-looking pictures whether by sunlight or candlelight. Autofocus, tap to focus, and tap to set exposure functions mean every photo you take instantly becomes a frame worthy gem. And with built-in face detection that automatically balances focus and exposure across up to 10 faces, there™s more room for more grins.
Record HD video in full 1080p.
Sometimes life takes you by surprise. You'e reading a bestseller on your iPad waiting for the morning train when you spy a gifted performer on the platform. Or you'e browsing the web on the couch when your dog trots by wearing your daughter™s tutu. The iSight camera on the 3rd-generation iPad lets you capture all these unpredictable, beautiful, and hilarious moments. In 1080p HD, no less. And with automatic video stabilization, your recording is free of bumps and shakes. Which is a big advantage when you'e laughing uncontrollably.
It™s all in the lenses.
Megapixels matter. But the quality of a photo is determined by other things too, like the camera™s optics, image signal processor, and software. The iSight camera uses advanced optics to give you the best picture possible. With an /2.4 aperture and a five-element lens, it captures light efficiently to produce a sharper overall image. And the hybrid infrared filter ” typically reserved for expensive SLR cameras ” keeps out harmful IR light for more accurate, uniform colors.
The world™s most advanced mobile operating system.
iOS is the magic behind iPad. It lets you see and do everything using Multi-Touch. It includes all the powerful, innovative, and fun built-in apps you use every day, many times a day. It™s the preferred choice for app developers.
Your content. On all your devices.
iCloud stores your music, photos, apps, mail, contacts, calendars, documents, and more and wirelessly pushes them to all your devices. So if you buy a song, take a photo, or edit a calendar event on your iPad, iCloud makes sure it appears on your Mac, iPhone, and iPod touch, too. You don™t have to do a thing.
Talking is the new typing.
Write an email. Send a text. Search the web. Or create a note. And do it all with only your voice. Instead of typing, tap the microphone icon on the keyboard. Then say what you want to say while your iPad listens. Tap Done and, just like that, your spoken words become written words. Dictation also works with third-party apps, so you can do things like update your Facebook status or share a thought on your Twitter feed.
