"Undoubtedly the best version to date: the iPad is as desirable as ever." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine.
MORE POWER THAN EVER WITH THE NEW A6X CHIP
Yet again, Apple have made the iPad more powerful. With quad-core graphics processing, the iPad is more responsive than ever. Nearly all aspects of using the iPad are improved by this chip. From the response of swiping the screen to power hungry applications such as editing photos, videos and, of course, gaming. Quite simply, this is the fastest reacting iPad to date.
IMPROVED FRONT FACING CAMERA FOR ENHANCED VIDEO CALLING
With the front camera uprated to a 1.2mp version, it's now possible to use FaceTime in 720p HD! Perfect for when you're making calls to others with HD displays, the new camera makes 'being there' even more realistic.
In line with the iPhone 5, the new iPad features the latest Lightning dock. Smaller and more robust than the previous design, the main benefit is the new connection will allow for faster transmission speeds - especially handy when syncing with your desktop computer. As an aside, the new dock is also symmetrical, allowing it to be plugged in front to back or back to front.
THE ULTIMATE RESOLUTION, RETINA DISPLAY
With a pixel resolution of 2048 x 1536, the Apple iPad Retina has an incredible four times the number of pixels of an iPad 2. With these pixels being so small, clarity and detail is breathtaking, with even the finest details clearly visible. Best of all, this clarity benefits pretty much everything you might want to do with your iPad, from watching video, to reading books and playing games; the whole lot has just become crisper than ever.
INSTANT ON AND A TEN HOUR BATTERY LIFE
Despite all the impressive new tech on board, the iPad still has a battery life of up to ten hours. What's more, the iPad is so convenient and efficient to use. As soon as you open the smart cover or press the home button, it's ready to go. Compare this with the laborious start-up procedure of Windows laptops from a few years ago and you can appreciate just how much Apple have moved the user experience on.
5MP ISIGHT CAMERA WITH HD VIDEO RECORDING
Using an advanced five-element lens, the iPad is still a pretty impressive digital camera. What's more, with that large screen, autofocus, tap to focus and tap to set exposure functions, taking quality pictures is easier than ever. If this wasn't enough, the iPad now also records at Full 1080p HD resolution for video that does justice to Full HD displays. For smoother images, automatic video stabilisation is also included.
AIRPLAY AS STANDARD
With built-in AirPlay, the iPad can relate to your other hi-fi and TV components with a simple wireless connection. So, for example, match up to one of the increasing numbers of hi-fi or AV receivers with AirPlay and you can playback music stored on the iPad, without the need for docks or messy cables. Similarly, use the iPad with Apple TV and you can watch anything that's playing on the iPad, on your TV - wirelessly!
With all this and much, much more, the Apple iPad Retina remains the tablet to beat.
