The wait is finally over after Apple unveiled its latest piece of technology - the new iPad.
Chief executive officer Tim Cook believes that the tablet is the continuation of a process that Apple has developed over the past decade in relation to touch screen technology.
Apple’s new iPad pushes the boundaries of tablet technology in further into the distance, leaving their rivals trying to play catch-up.
As expected Apple have improved the screen visibility thanks to a display of 2,048 by 1,536 pixels which equates to a pixel total of 3.1 million.
Thanks to the upgrade of battery the processor is stronger and the retina display screen allows for clearer viewing.
A further area where the Apple new iPad has grown is the depth of the tablet, it is now 9.4 millimetres deep instead of the earlier tablets which were 8.8 millimetres deep.
This is to fit not only the quad-core A5 chip which allows better resolution but to also increase the rear-facing camera’s resolution.
It will be available to run on 4G LTE networks wherever this service is on offer – something which will please many in America who have been demanding this.
The new iPad can also act as a Wi-Fi hotspot for other technologies as well if the users allow them to sync together.
While the battery life of the new iPad is said to be ten hours which is the same as the iPad 2 battery, if using 4G the battery life will shorten by at least an hour.
Apple has 62% of the global tablet market according to a study by IMS Research and the firm predict that following the release of the new iPad Apple will increase their tablet market share to 70%.
