The 4th generation iPad is here, and though the looks are just as stunning as the previous version, its speed and power have increased dramatically. Introducing the iPad (4th Generation) with Retina Display, still with its 3.1 million pixel display and 1080p HD video iSight camera, this generation now hosts the extremely powerful A6X chip that is twice as fast and has twice the graphics performance of its A5X predecessor, and a faster wireless connection that will have you accessing content with a lighting pace. You’re actually touching your photos, reading a book, and playing the piano. Nothing comes between you and what you love. Now your hands-on experience is even faster than before, which makes the fourth-generation iPad capable of keeping up up with everything you’ve ever imagined.
Powerful A6X chip
Twice the speed. Twice the graphics performance.
The new A6X chip inside iPad is our most powerful mobile chip yet. It delivers up to twice the CPU and graphics performance of the A5X chip. And it makes iPad feel faster and even more responsive. Apps launch instantly and run smoothly. Graphics‑intensive games are fluid and lifelike on the gorgeous Retina display. And with improved image signal processing built into the A6X chip, the photos and videos you take with the 5‑megapixel iSight camera look sharper and even more Retina worthy.
10-hour battery life.
iPad features a 3.1-million-pixel Retina display and an advanced processor and 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.
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 new 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
Tons of Apps
Right out of the box, iPad takes the things you do every day and makes them extraordinary. Map out your next adventure. Then shoot it in 1080p HD. Ask Siri to help you find the best pizza in town. Watch a webcast or a movie. Read a best seller or a magazine. Check email. Send messages. Or stay in touch face-to-face over FaceTime. You’ll be amazed at how much is built right in.
Over 275,000 apps from the App Store.
The App Store is home to more than 275,000 iPad apps and counting. But quantity is only part of the story. These are beautiful, immersive, made-just-for-iPad apps. And they change the way you do everything. You can make a spreadsheet for work, make a Hollywood-style trailer for fun, plan a lesson, plan a trip, or simply plan a meal — all on a single device.
FaceTime and iSight Cameras
Wave hello with the new FaceTime HD camera.
FaceTime on iPad puts you face-to-face — even when you’re miles apart. You can make a video call over Wi‑Fi, so your friends and family are never out of the loop. And now with the new FaceTime HD camera, everyone can get an even better view of you and what’s around you. You can also use it for taking self-portraits or recording 720p HD video.
Record HD video in full 1080p.
Sometimes life takes you by surprise. You’re reading on your iPad while waiting for the train when you spy a talented performer on the platform. Or you’re browsing the web on the couch when your dog trots by wearing your daughter’s tutu. The iSight camera on 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’re laughing uncontrollably.
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. When you shoot photos, the big, beautiful Retina display becomes a big, beautiful viewfinder — giving you plenty of room to compose your shot. Autofocus, tap to focus, and tap to set exposure functions mean every photo you take instantly becomes frameworthy. And with built-in face detection that automatically balances focus and exposure across up to 10 faces, there’s more room for more grins. So everyone look at iPad and say “Cheese.”
Advanced Wi‑Fi technology. Built in.
The new Wi‑Fi capabilities built into iPad keep you connected faster than ever — up to twice as fast as any previous-generation iPad. With dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) 802.11n Wi‑Fi and support for channel bonding, download speeds can reach up to 150 Mbps. Translation: Many of the things you do every day may start to feel a whole lot faster.
Just ask Siri
Your wish is its command.
Siri is the intelligent assistant that helps you get things done, just by asking. Talk to Siri as you would to a person: Ask “Do I need an umbrella?” or “Did the Giants win last night?” or “What time is the barbecue on Sunday?” Siri not only understands what you say, it knows what you mean. It figures out the right apps to use to find the right answer. Then, just like a personal assistant, Siri provides you with the information you need.
The world’s most advanced mobile operating system.
At the core of every iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch is iOS. It includes all the built-in apps you use every day and all the intuitive technology — like Multi‑Touch and Siri — that makes iPad so advanced. With every free iOS update comes even more capability for your devices. You’ll find the latest version, iOS 6, already installed on iPad. So right out of the box, you get more than 200 new features to make the things you do every day even better.
Your content. On all your devices.
iCloud is built right into iPad. Just turn it on and you’ll have instant access to all the things you need, whether you’re on your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Mac, or PC. New features in iOS 6 let you do even more with iCloud. Share the photos you want with the people you choose using Shared Photo Streams. Locate, lock, and recover your misplaced iPad easier than ever. Browse a web page on one device and pick up where you left off on another device using iCloud Tabs. And that’s just for starters.
A new way to get connected.
Part of every new iPad is the all-new Lightning connector. It’s 80 percent smaller than the 30‑pin connector. And it features an all-digital, eight-signal design that’s significantly more durable. Another brilliant feature of Lightning: It’s reversible. Which means there’s no wrong way to plug in the cable.
Lightning to 30‑pin Adapter.
If you have an iPad accessory that depends on the 30‑pin connector, you can still connect it to your new iPad. Simply use a Lightning to 30‑pin Adapter (sold separately).
