iPad 4

The fourth generation iPad debuted as the successor to the third generation “new iPad” on October 23rd, 2012, the same day the iPad Mini made its debut.

Officially called the "iPad with Retina Display" by Apple, the iPad 4 is a fairly minor update over the third generation iPad, offering the same 9.7-inch Retina display screen, weight and battery life as the previous iPad.

The iPad 4th Generation does add a faster A6X processor and the new Lightning connector that’s also found on the iPhone 5 and new iPod Nano devices, as well as expanded 4G LTE coverage, with Sprint added to the roster of carriers (along with Verizon and AT&T). Pricing for the iPad 4 starts at $499 for the 16GB Wi-Fi-only model.
