Apple users, did you get all you were hoping for in the new iPad?
The new iPad had its official unveiling, March 7. The big reveal was made at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, where Apple also launched its two prior iPads. The new iPad is now available for sale in the United States.
The new iPad’s biggest distinction (besides its lack of numerical assignment) is its awesome quality 9.7-inch retina display. However, Apple also made a few other tweaks in terms of design and display.
1. Retina Display
Apple outdid itself with the super high-resolution retina display on the new iPad. Containing 2,048 x 1,536 pixels, which is one million more than a 1080 HDTV, makes the screen have 44% better color saturation. According to Mashable, Apple claims the new iPad has “the best display ever made for a mobile device.”
2. iSight Camera and 1080p recording
Integrating the optics of the iPhone 4s’ camera, with five megapixels instead of 8, allows the new iPad to capture brilliant photographs. With a backside-illuminated sensor, large f/2.4 aperture and automatic image stabilization, the quality of photos and videos is greatly amplified. Additionally, the camera can also record in 1080p, an improvement from the 720p on the iPad 2.
3. More battery power
Although new features like these, especially the retina display, require more power, the new iPad has the same battery life as the iPad 2. How, you ask? Because the new iPad’s battery is rated at almost double what the previous model was. The bigger battery lets you work as you did before but on a higher quality display.
