It's brilliant. Seriously.
Pick up the new iPad and suddenly, it’s clear. You’re actually touching your photos, reading a book, playing the piano. Nothing comes between you and what you love. To make that hands-on experience even better, we made the fundamental elements of iPad better — the display, the camera, the wireless connection. All of which makes the new, third-generation iPad capable of so much more than you ever imagined.
Retina Display. See with new eyes.
Four times more pixels than iPad 2. Razor-sharp text. Richer colors. The Retina display transforms the entire iPad experience. So everything looks and feels incredibly lifelike and perfectly detailed. 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 the new iPad features a 2048-by-1536 resolution, 44 percent greater color saturation, and an astounding 3.1 million pixels — in the same 9.7-inch space. 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.
Facetime. All the better to see them with.
Tap FaceTime to make a video call. FaceTime closes the distance between you and the people you care about — from miles to inches. To make a video call, tap FaceTime. Your favorite folk appear on the right. Select a name, wait for the person to accept the call, then smile big.
Switch between cameras during a call. On the front of iPad is a FaceTime camera. On the back is an iSight camera. iPad lets you switch between them anytime during a call. So one minute your friends see you, and the next they see what you see.
Start with your Apple ID. All you need to start making FaceTime video calls is an Apple ID. If you’ve purchased anything from the iTunes Store or the App Store, you already have one.
Pixel perfect performance.
The A5X chip with quad-core graphics drives four times the pixels of iPad 2 yet it delivers the same smoothness and fluidity iPad is known for. Even with all that extra oomph, the new iPad still gets an amazing 10 hours of battery life.
The Retina display on the new iPad wouldn’t be possible without the new and powerful A5X chip. It drives power to every one of the 3.1 million pixels in the display. And its quad-core graphics processing makes everything you do on iPad feel incredibly responsive. From the little things like swiping, scrolling, and pinching to the big things like editing photos in the new iPhoto, applying filters and transitions in iMovie, and, of course, playing games.
With iSight. Your memories re-defined.
The new iPad features Apple’s 5-megapixel iSight camera. Designed with advanced optics, it lets you shoot gorgeous photos and 1080p HD video. The 5-megapixel iSight camera features a backside illumination sensor that captures great-looking pictures whether by sunlight or candlelight. Autofocus, tap to focus, and tap to set exposure functions mean every photo you take instantly becomes a frameworthy gem. 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.”
Megapixels matter. But the quality of a photo is determined by other things, too — like the camera’s optics, image signal processor, and software. The iSight camera uses advanced optics to give you the best picture possible. With an ƒ/2.4 aperture and a five-element lens, it captures light efficiently to produce a sharper overall image. And the hybrid infrared filter — typically reserved for expensive SLR cameras — keeps out harmful IR light for more accurate, uniform colors.
The world’s most advanced mobile operating system.
iOS is the magic behind new iPad. It lets you see and do everything using Multi-Touch. It includes all the powerful, innovative, and fun built-in apps you use every day, many times a day. It’s the preferred choice for app developers. And it’s yet another reason no other device comes close to the new iPad.
iPad as a personal hotspot.
Now for the first time, you can share the high-speed data connection on your new iPad. If your carrier supports it, the new iPad can act as a personal hotspot for connecting up to five devices — such as a MacBook Air, an iPod touch, or another iPad — over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or USB.
Ultrafast 4G LTE. Full speed ahead.
The new iPad supports fast cellular networks the world over — including 4G LTE networks. So you can browse the web, stream content, or download a movie at blazing-fast speeds. It also works on GSM/UMTS worldwide network technologies including HSPA, HSPA+, and DC-HSDPA — the fastest 3G networks out there. You’ll see downlink speeds up to 42 Mbps with DC-HSDPA and up to 21.1 Mbps with HSPA+.
iCloud. Your content. On all your devices.
iCloud stores your music, photos, apps, mail, contacts, calendars, documents, and more and wirelessly pushes them to all your devices. So if you buy a song, take a photo, or edit a calendar event on your new iPad, iCloud makes sure it appears on your Mac, iPhone, and iPod touch, too. You don’t have to do a thing.
Over 200,000 apps to choose from.
The App Store is home to over 200,000 apps and counting — all made just for iPad. And many of them are free. You buy apps from the App Store using the same Apple ID you use to buy music from iTunes. Find an app you like, tap to buy it, and it starts downloading instantly. The new iPad lets you know when updates are available, so your apps are always current.
AirPlay. Play it on your iPad. Watch it on your HDTV.
Whether it’s the new album you bought, photos of your Barcelona escapade, or an HD movie, AirPlay lets you stream what’s on your iPad straight to your speakers and HDTV.
This product supports very fast cellular networks. It is not compatible with current UAE based 4G LTE networks, and will only operate upto 3G speeds.
