Apple unveiled the brand new iPad at a special event held at San Francisco on 7th March, 2012. Interestingly or rather surprisingly, Apple introduced the slate as the new iPad and not as iPad 3 or iPad HD. Though there are references to the third generation iPad on the official website, we are still in a confusion to call it so. Apple in the recent times is giving a face-lift to the previous innovations rather than introducing an revolutionary product. For instance, the introduction of iPhone 4S in place of iPhone 5 as successor. Similarly, Apple launched the Apple new iPad in place of Apple iPad 3. For whatever the reason, the true innovation is mislaid with Apple in the recent times.
The third generation tablet – the new iPad is a stunning gadget from Apple. The once claimed revolutionary device iPad is now termed as a Resolutionary iPad. So, let us drive through to the top five features of the dazzling device. Top 5 features of new iPad (3rd Generation):- 1. Retina Display Apple new iPad comes with the new Retina display with four times more pixels that earlier version iPad 2. The display now allows the users to see Razor-sharp text and Richer colors. The Razor sharp display transforms the entire iPad and feels incredibly lifelike and perfectly detailed images and movies. The new iPad features a 9.7 inch touchscreen display with 2048 x 1536 pixels resolution that has more pixels than an HDTV (1920 x 1080 pixels). The display comes with 3.1 million pixels spread across the screen and each inch is been defined with 264 pixels. The pixels are so close to each other that a human eye can’t discern individual ones at a normal viewing distance. Also, Apple has done some engineering to separate the pixels onto a different plane so that the image quality doesn’t suffer. 2. 5 Megapixel iSight Camera
The new iPad comes with an integrated 5.0 Megapixel camera. This time, it is termed as an iSight Camera, designed with advanced optics and stunning features. Also, the shooter comes with Auto-Focus lens and backside illumination sensor and this lets you shoot videos at 1080p HD quality resolution. The camera has an built-in face detection that automatically balances focus and exposure across up to 10 faces. The iSight camera uses advanced optics to deliver the best picture possible. With an f/2.4 aperture and a five-element lens, it captures light efficiently to produce a sharper overall image like an SLR cameras does. The camera features video stabilization and temporal noise reduction options. 3. A5X Processor Apple tuned-up the better performing processor (A5 Chip) to a powerful Apple A5X processor chip. This dual-core processor supports Quad-core graphics and drives four times the pixels of Apple iPad2. However, Apple didn’t reveal the fact the processor was dual-core. Apple claims that the A5X processor is 4X powerful than the NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 in rendering the graphics. After-all this is Apple’s customized processor and therefore the company with the innovative engineering capabilities can always deliver a better one. As-usual the device with the new A5X chip delivers the same fluid transition that the tablet is meant for. Despite of adding a better GPU, Apple did not compromise in meeting the 10 hour long battery life. 4. Dictation Apple new iPad comes with a new dictation feature. This appears in the form of microphone icon on the virtual keyboard. This icon can be used for various options like writing an email, sending text, searching web, or creating a note. Instead of typing, the user can dictate to complete these tasks. Users can tap the microphone icon on the keyboard to give instructions and tap done. This dictation is also compatible with third party apps including Facebook for status updates and Twitter for feeds. Amazing isn’t ??? 5. Ultra-fast 4G LTE The new iPad now supports the fastest cellular networks 4G LTE. So, users are now allowed to browse the web, stream the videos, and download the content at blazing-fast speeds. Apart from 4G LTE, it also supports GSM/UMTS worldwide network technologies, including fastest 3G networks HSPA+ and DC-HSDPA signals. With the new iPad, users can see downlink speeds up to 42Mbps with DC-HSDPA and up to 21.1 Mbps with HSPA+. Now for the first time Apple iPad comes with a personal hotspot feature. With this user can now establish a connection with up to 5 devices to share the internet speeds. User can now connect the devices over Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or USB.
