In case you’re one of the few that hasn’t heard, the iPad 3 hit the market last month. And it hit big. But what’s all the fuss about? After all, it’s not like this new tablet is unheard of. There were 2 models before it, so how much could this new one have changed from them? The fact is that the iPad 3 is a big deal and, as usual, Apple has broken technological barriers with its new product.
The iPad 3’s graphics processing unit (GPU) is a substantial upgrade from the iPad 2; gamers who bought an iPad 2 merely 6 months prior to the iPad 3’s release are even considering switching. The iPad 2 had a 1 GHz dual core A5 processor with dual core GPU; meanwhile, the new iPad has a 1 Ghz dual core A5X processor with quad core GPU. This translates to images loading much more quickly and a more realistic gaming experience.
The cameras on the new iPad are also an upgrade from the iPad 2. The iPad 2’s rear-facing less than 1 mp camera could record a 720p HD video and had a front-facing VGA camera. The new iPad’s camera, on the other hand, has 5 MP rear-facing camera and can record HD video and photos at 1080p; it also has a front-facing VGA camera.
Many are also excited about the new iPad’s 4G LTE network option. Users can opt for an iPad with 4G LTE, the “fastest cellular network in the world” according to Apple, capabilities.
This is perhaps the most impressive and talked about feature of the new iPad. The iPad 2 came equipped with 9.7-inch touch 1024×768 pixel display. The new iPad, on the other hand, has made technological history with its 9.7-inch touch 2048×1536 pixel Retina Display; its new retina display is a quality beyond that of the popular 1920×1080 display found on Blu-ray and full HD displays.
Additionally, those who use their iPad as an e-reader have found that the iPad 3 has cut down on the glare many had complained they experienced on previous models.
People’s Complaints, and Why They’re Silly
As with any product, there are people making some complaints about the new iPad. The first, as you may have heard, is that the new iPad gets really hot. Analysis found that the new iPad gets about 13 degrees hotter than the iPad 2, though even this elevated temperature isn’t something harmful to users. User complaints about he increased temperature are beyond silly. For one thing, it’s not a surprise that the new iPad would be warmer than its predecessors. It’s new display and faster gaming capabilities mean that the tablet must work harder than its previous model. For another, those complaining are mostly gamers using the tablet more than an average user would; like as long as the duration of the iPad’s battery life (10 hours).
Another complaint is that the new iPad’s battery life is shorter than the iPad 2. And, again, this is a silly complaint. It only makes sense that battery life would be shorter when one considers the vast processor, camera, and display improvements.
