Maybe you’ve heard about the newest release coming from Apple. But do you know what are the news or the technical specs of iPad 3? Don’t worry, this is why we are here for: to let you know all the things you might want to know about iPad3.
Launched on Wednesday 7 March, at 10am PT/6pm GMT, the new iPad 3 started some real controversial discussions about it among Apple fans and those who don’t think that the new Apple tablet is that special. Let’s have a look and come together to a conclusion. Before, let’s see what are the new iPad prices:
iPad 3 specs
With an Apple A5X ARM-based unit as a processor, thenew iPad3 seems to be a really good gadget, since it offers much more performance than the NVidia chipsets. With an astonishing 2048 x 1536 pixels resolution and a 9.7-inch size screen, the graphics look really amazing on the new Apple tablet. Unfortunately, it has a sharpness of only 264ppi. Yet, the fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating brings a really nice advantage.
The camera of iPad 3 is able to record 1080p video, thanks to the iSight camera that offers really nice features such as video geotagging, auto face-detection, 5-element lens and tap-to-focus.
The battery of iPad 3 can go up to 10 hours if you are not using LTE. In this case, it will last only 9 hours. Still a pretty good battery life for a tablet.
iOS 5.1 review
In less than 24 hours, there have been released a jailbreak for iOS 51. We will write about it in the tomorrow’s article. An amazing feature of the newest Apple’s operating system is the app that converts words in text. Also, iPhoto seems pretty great.
You can also use AirPlay Mirroring to Apple TV, with 1080p mirroring for the latest AppleTv models.
iPad 3 versus iPad 2
iPad 3 display vs. iPad 2 display
iPad 3 has Retina Display! Even if it has the same size as the one from iPad 2, the iPad 3 display seems to gain this fight, thanks to its 2048×1536 pixels resolution. This means better colors and 1080 full HD movies. Too bad that the new iPad 3 has only 264 ppi.
iPad 3 hardware vs. iPad 2 hardware
The best feature provided by iPad 3 is its new processor, an Apple A5X. it has a bigger frequency, of 1,5 GHz, while iPad 2 offers only 1 GHz. The quad core included graphic card offers 4 time bigger power than the new NVidia chipset from Playstation Vita.
iPad 3 design vs. iPad 2 design
It seems that the first one of the Apple’s priorities was not the design. iPad 3 looks almost the same as iPad 2, the only difference being the dimensions.
iPad 3 software vs. iPad 2 software
Even if most of the Apple fans have been disappointed because the company didn’t released the iOS 6, it seems that most of them are happy with the new released operating system, especially thanks to the new application iPhoto.
In our opinion, it seems that iPad 3 is much better than iPad 2. Of course, Apple could make it much better, but I think that all the disappointment comes only from the huge number of rumors about iPad 3 that were born before its release. What is your opinion about iPad 3?
