It seems that Apple are always reinventing themselves. If they’re not coming up with new models of smart devices they re-launch old models, updating them to current needs. This might be just a calculated marketing strategy or they really have something new to show us in the agglomerated realm of smart devices. Rumors say that they’ve already re-launched the iPad 4 in stores because they want to take out the outdated cousin which is the iPad 2. Let’s see what this is all about.
The iPad 4 was launched in 2012 and was taken off the shelves, replacing it with the lighter and slimmer iPad Air in October 2013. This time Apple wants to replace the Ipad 2 with new version of iPad 4 that has a 9 inch Retina display and are for sale again on Apple’s website, available in black and white with a 16GB memory.
The new iPad 4 has a Lighting connector just like the iPad mini, iPad Air and iPad mini Retina. The iPad 4 comes with a dual core 6X chip and a camera of 5mp. It weighs 653 g and it’s heavier than the iPad Air with 200g.
iPad 4 price and availability
The iPad 4 that has Wi-Fi connectivity costs £329 in the U.K and the LTE version costs £429. In the U.S the price of it is $399 for the Wi-Fi version and $529 for the cellular one.
Apple was the largest seller of tablets in the world in 2013, selling around 70 million iPads, 9 million more than in 2012.
Reports say that when Apple will launch their 8GB iPhone 5c they will also make available the updated iPad 4.
Personally we can’t wait to see what the fuss is all about. Is it really an improvement or just a marketing strategy?
