The New iPad

The new iPadThe new iPad has launched, with an Australian release date of March 16 announced today (March 7).

What's New?

  • The new iPad will have a new 2048-by-1536 pixel Retina display. That alone is a big step up from the current model.
  • A new A5X dual core processor. This will help drive the new display smoothly and provide more grunt for graphics-intensive apps, as well as smoother scrolling and faster web experiences.
  • Better cameras with a 5-megapixel rear camera and a Facetime front camera.
  • 4G LTE capability - but unfortunately this will not work with Telstra's 4G network due to differences in frequencies used in our network vs US networks
  • It will be slightly thicker (by 6mm) and heavier (by 50g)
