Pick up the iPad with Retina display and suddenly, it’s clear. You’re actually touching your photos, reading abook, playing the piano. Nothing comes between you and what you love. That’s because the fundamental elements of iPad — the display, the A6X chip, the cameras, the wireless connection — all work together to create the best possible experience. And they make iPad capable of so much more than you ever imagined.
The breakthrough Retina display.
Everything you do with iPad, you do through its large, beautiful display. And when the display is better, the entire iPad experience is better. The Retina display on iPad features a 2048-by-1536 resolution, rich colour saturation and an astounding 3.1 million pixels. That’s four times the number of pixels in iPad 2 and a million more than an HDTV. Those pixels are so close together, your eyes can’t discern individual ones at a normal viewing distance. When you can’t see the pixels, you see the whole picture. Or article. Or game. In ways you never could before.
Twice the speed. Twice the graphics performance.
The new A6X chip inside iPad is our most powerful mobile chip yet. It delivers up to twice the CPU and graphics performance of the A5X chip. And it makes iPad feel faster and even more responsive. Apps launch instantly and run smoothly. Graphics-intensive games are fluid and lifelike on the gorgeous Retina display. And with improved image signal processing built into the A6X chip, the photos and videos you take with the 5-megapixel iSight camera look sharper and even more Retina-worthy.
10-hour battery life.
iPad features a 3.1-million-pixel Retina display and an advanced A6X chip and graphics. How much of an effect does that have on battery life? Almost none. You still get up to 10 hours of power to read, watch, play, write and create whatever you want, all you want.
Straight out of the box, iPad takes the things you do every day and makes them extraordinary. Map out your next adventure. Then shoot it in 1080p HD. Ask Siri to help you find the best pizza in town. Watch a webcast or a movie. Read a bestseller or a magazine. Check email. Send messages. Or stay in touch face to face over FaceTime. You’ll be amazed at how much is built in.
Over 300,000 apps from the App Store.
The App Store is home to more than 300,000 iPad apps and counting.4 But quantity is only part of the story. These are beautiful, immersive, made-just-for-iPad apps. And they change the way you do everything. You can make a spreadsheet for work, make a Hollywood-style trailer for fun, plan a lesson, plan a trip or simply plan a meal — all on a single device.
Record HD video in full 1080p.
Sometimes life takes you by surprise. You’re reading on your iPad while waiting for the train when you spy a talented performer on the platform. Or you’re browsing the web on the couch when your dog trots by wearing your daughter’s tutu. The iSight camera on iPad lets you capture all these unpredictable, beautiful and hilarious moments. In 1080p HD, no less. And with automatic video stabilisation, your recording is free of bumps and shakes.
Which is a big advantage when you’re laughing uncontrollably.
Shoot 5-megapixel still images.
The 5-megapixel iSight camera features a backside illumination sensor that captures great-looking pictures whether by sunlight or candlelight. When you shoot photos, the big, beautiful Retina display becomes a big, beautiful viewfinder — giving you plenty of room to compose your shot. Autofocus, tap to focus, and tap to set exposure functions mean every photo you take instantly becomes frameworthy. And with built-in face detection that automatically balances focus and exposure across up to 10 faces, there’s more room for more grins. So everyone look at iPad and say “Cheese”.
Advanced Wi-Fi technology. Built in.
The new Wi-Fi capabilities built into iPad keep you connected faster than ever — up to twice as fast as any previous-generation iPad. With dual-band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) 802.11n Wi-Fi and support for channel bonding, download speeds can reach up to 150 Mbps. Translation: many of the things you do every day may start to feel a whole lot faster.
Next-generation cellular connectivity.
If you want to connect to the Internet even when you don’t have access to Wi-Fi, choose iPad with Wi-Fi + Cellular. It now supports even more ultrafast cellular networks around the world, such as HSPA, HSPA+ and DC-HSDPA. So you can download content, stream video and browse the web at amazing speeds — without a contract or long-term commitment.
Just ask Siri.
Siri is the intelligent assistant that helps you get things done, just by asking. Talk to Siri as you would to a person. Ask “Do I need an umbrella?” or “Did the San Francisco Giants win last night?” or “What time is the barbecue on Sunday?” Siri not only understands what you say, it knows what you mean. It figures out the right apps to use to find the right answer. Then, just like a personal assistant, Siri provides you with the information you need.
The world’s most advanced mobile operating system.
iOS is at the core of every iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. It includes all the built-in apps you use every day and all the intuitive technology — like Multi-Touch and Siri — that makes iPad so advanced. With every free iOS update comes even more capability for your devices. You’ll find the latest version, iOS 6, already installed on iPad. So straight out of the box, you get more than 200 new features to make the things you do every day even better.
Your content. On all your devices.
iCloud is built into iPad. Just turn it on and you’ll have instant access to all the things you need, whether you’re on your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Mac or PC.9 New features in iOS 6 let you do even more with iCloud. Share the photos you want with the people you choose using Shared Photo Streams. Locate, lock and recover your misplaced iPad easier than ever. Browse a web page on one device and pick up where you left off on another device using iCloud Tabs. And that’s just for starters.
A new way to get connected.
Part of every new iPad is the all-new Lightning connector. It’s 80 per cent smaller than the 30-pin connector. And it features an all-digital, eight-signal design that’s significantly more durable. Another brilliant feature of Lightning: it’s reversible. Which means there’s no wrong way to plug in the cable.
Lightning to 30-pin Adapter.
If you have an iPad accessory that depends on the 30-pin connector, you can still connect it to your new iPad. Simply use a Lightning to 30-pin Adapter (sold separately).
Stream via AirPlay.
All the great stuff on your iPad — your music, photos and videos — can stream wirelessly to your HDTV and speakers via Apple TV10 or to AirPlay-enabled speakers over a Wi-Fi network. With just a tap on the AirPlay icon, you can rock the house with your favourite album, have a movie night or show off some photos. And go large.
Print via AirPrint.
Print straight from your iPad over Wi-Fi with AirPrint. There’s no software to download, no drivers to install and no cables to connect. Print from Mail, Photos, Safari and iBooks. Or any of the iWork apps — Pages, Keynote and Numbers. With just a few taps, you can send whatever’s onscreen to an AirPrint-enabled printer.
