Part for Apple iPad 4 leaks in advance of 'mini' announcement
posted by Alan F. / Oct 21, 2012, 2:21 PM
What is bringing on this talk is a picture of the lightning dock connector for the next build of Apple's tablet along with a picture of the lightning dock connector for the Apple iPad mini. Looking at the huge difference between the two, we could assume (despite of what happens when you make an assumption) that Apple needed to redesign the part to add other components to the innards of the next tablet. That points to some new functionality or features for the Apple iPad 4. And while we are just about to see Apple take its first step into the low priced 7 inch tablet market, it is not too early for the company to start procuring parts for the next-gen model.
What features would you like to see Apple add to the Apple iPad 4? You can let us know by dropping your comments in the box below!

Okay, ideas can be stolen. If I make a Mickey Mouse cartoon, Disney has a right to sue me (unless it's fair use, and one can argue that Mickey's copyright should have expired decades ago, but I digress). If I'm writing an essay on Hamlet and quote a professor, I should cite the professor. If I want to build a speaker, I should pay for whatever patents I use. Generally, software should be an exception to the patent system. There might be some situations where it's rational to offer a patent (some kind of groundbreaking algorithm), but in many instances, software patents are just a matter of certain companies wasting money to describe obvious ideas, and then gaining the right to sue over them. So while plagiarism is real, we need to kind of throw all that stuff aside in software. If someone patented every little feature of a PC, PCs would either be incredibly expensive, or they would have few features.

Honestly. I wouldn't be surprised if Apple added a 8MP iSight camera to the "iPad 4" just so they can make The New iPad owners upgrade.

It's funny that how Apple give names to their products and features. -iSight for a simple camera -Facetime for front camera -they even showed off proudly the blue sapphire coloured camera lens cover in iphone 5 thinking that they have invented the Blue colour!!

So you call every device that Apple makes and releases an upgrade and make fun of it like a little kid you know cuz thats how you think or in fact might just be a little boy... Anyway, enough of that and lets go forward.. -Samsung Galaxy -Apple iPhone 4 Good Hardware Good Hardware -Samsung Galaxy 2 -Apple iPhone 4S Dif. Design & Better Hardware Same Design & Better Hardware -Samsung Galaxy 3 -Apple iPhone 5 Dif. Design & Better Hardware Dif. Design & Better Hardware All these phones have Dif. Hardware compared with one another- So if a company like Apple decides to keep the same design and only change the hardware to make it a better device THEN that's their choice. People buy a 4S because fyi it is better than the 4 by a mile. Those who had the 4 and upgraded to a 4s know the dif. just as if you had a Galaxy 2 and upgraded to the Galaxy 3. Am i lost? - Hello...... Hellooooo.

Has anyone said that the iPhone 5 does not offer anything above the 4S? The thing is it doesn't offer anything above the S3 or the NL920, feature wise, but almost everything is upgraded over the 4S. Design wise, not so much, the 5 is basically an elongated 4S with a dual-toned back.

Oh WOW, a new conector!! Someone get me a sedative, I'm too excited. Leave it up to BGR (Big Girls Round-up) to uncover iNsiGniFiCance; they make PhoneArena seem like All Things Android with their countless barrage of iStories. Has Jonathan gained anymore weight?

Apple is 2 years behind in race with Android now. What would this new pad be called? Coccaine or Grass? They call the other thing "Lightning" so who knows next we hear Coccaine, Grass and LSD models :D
