The New iPad Recap

March 7th, 2012 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Platforms: iOS | No Comments »

We heard a whole lot of new at the iPad presentation today. In this post we have all details sorted out for you.


Apple sold 315.000.000 iOS devices in 2011. In the last quarter, it sold 62 million of those. In the last quarter, it also sold 15.4 million iPad devices. Apple has 585.000 apps on the App Store and they did 25 billion downloads. 200.000 of those apps are made for the iPad.

Apple TV

Apple TV will be available March 16th and support Full HD playback. All video content on iTunes is now also Full HD and purchased content will be upgraded. It runs on the new iOS 5.1 but has no iOS interface. Does run third party apps.

The New iPad

And the thing we have all been waiting for is The New iPad (to be followed by the newer iPad in 2013 and the newest iPad in 2014). It has a quad-core A5X CPU in combination with 1GB RAM and that is used for the Retina Display (2048×1536 pixels or 264 pixels per inch) and bigger/better apps. It now has a 5 megapixel iSight camera and support for LTE that can push 4G speeds up to 73Mbs. The bezels are now touch sensitive and the battery lasts for 10 hours (9 on 4G). Prices are the same as for the iPad 2. The iPad 2 16GB will remain on stock for $399.
