4th Generation iPad Main New Features
  • Powerful New A6X Chip, twice as fast than the A5X chip.
  • Ultrafast wireless connection, twice as fast as any previous-generation iPad
  • Beautiful 9.7 inch Retina Display, 3.1 million pixels

The main new feature the 4th generation iPAd has to offer is a brand new chip – an A6X chip designed by Apple that, compared to the A5X chip that powered the previous model, delivers up to twice the CPU performance and up to twice the graphics performance. According to Apple, this new chip will not drain the device’s battery. You can expect to get 10 hours of battery life from the new iPad (depending of course on device settings, usage and other factors).

The new iPad comes with a 9.7 inch Retina Display that makes everything look crisp and lifelike. At 3.1 million pixels, Apple called it the best mobile display ever. Use this display to browse the web at ultrafast speeds ( compared to previous-generation models, the browsing speed is up to twice as fast) and to access more than 700,000 apps in the App Store and more than 275,000 apps specifically designed for the tablet.

As a little side note, Apple also introduced the new iPad Mini. Find out more about it here.
