Apple Announces 4th Gen iPad with A6X, Lightning Connector, FaceTime HD

by on October 23rd, 2012

On top of announcing the iPad mini today, Apple announced the 4th generation iPad with updated specs, which essentially sent the iPad 3rd gen into the graveyard (well, it’s available as refurbished). The 4th gen iPad gets the A6X chip that double graphics and CPU performance of the A5X and also maintains 10 hours of battery. Cosmetically, nothing has changed.

There’s a new FaceTime HD camera, faster WiFi and the new smaller Lightning connector. Existing Smart Covers and Smart Cases will be compatible with the latest iPad, which comes just six months after the debut of the iPad 3.

Pricing remains the same as before for the new 4th generation iPad. Check out the comparison of the iPad line up below:

So…who’s buying a new iPad this holiday?

    So what happens to users who bought the iPad 3 with apple care and they need to do an exchange? Do they get the iPad 3 or iPad 4? The apple website no longer even acknowledges the iPad 3 exists …

    One would think you would get the iPad 4, but Apple always has older generation units on hand for exchanges and warranty. Try it out? ;)
