Apple iPad (4th-gen)
The 4th generation iPad sports a beefier A6X processor for double the CPU and graphics performance (versus iPad 3), an improved FaceTime camera that supports 720p resolution, the new Lightning connector, 802.11a/b/g/n dual-band Wi-Fi and the same image signal processor found in the iPhone 5.
Impressively detailed and accurate Retina Display.
Faster A6X processor.
Improved worldwide cellular compatibility.
The iOS App Store remains best in class.
App ecosystem is unrivaled.
Above average battery life.
Not much of a serious upgrade to the iPad 3.
Still slightly weighty.
Same size, weight, and Retina screen.
Heavy to hold in one hand.
Most older accessories won't work without investing in a pricey Lightning adapter.
Lightning ecosystem is relatively small.
