Description

The fourth-generation iPad keeps the amazing screen resolution and general look and feel of its predecessor, but bumps up the specs with double the processing power and double the graphics power. The camera is also improved. The new tablet adds a Lightning connector instead of the (not so) good old 30-pin connector. It also has faster Wi-Fi connectivity and expanded LTE.
