The iPad 3rd Gen from Apple features an incredibly thin design and even more power than its predecessors. The improved Retina display contains 4 times more pixels than the iPad 2 for outstanding clarity and sharpness with both text and images. A newly designed dual-core A5X chip with quad-core graphics provides a great deal of processing power and speed to compensate for the increase in resolution and delivers the same responsive feeling of the former models. This increase in power and resolution all come without the cost of lessened battery life; the iPad still features up to 10 hours of power between charging.
The rear-facing iSight camera incorporates a 5 megapixel backside illuminated sensor for increased lowlight sensitivity as well as great performance in bright situations. Autofocus, tap-to-focus, and tap to set exposure settings provide a range of functions that allow you to achieve the best exposure possible in a quick and intuitive manner. Face detection is also supported and recognizes up to 10 different faces for improved exposure and focus settings when photographing people. In addition to improved still imaging capabilities, the iSight camera also supports full HD 1080p video recording with automatic image stabilization. The camera utilizes a 5-element f/2.4 lens for sharpness and integrates a hybrid infrared filter for greater color fidelity.
Retina display. See everything like never before.
Four times more pixels than iPad 2. Razor-sharp text. Richer colors. The Retina display transforms the entire iPad experience. So everything looks and feels incredibly lifelike and perfectly detailed.
The A5X chip with quad-core graphics drives four times the pixels of iPad 2 yet it delivers the same smoothness and fluidity iPad is known for. Even with all that extra oomph, the new iPad still gets an amazing 10 hours of battery life.
The iSight camera. Your memories have never been clearer.
The new iPad features Apple’s 5-megapixel iSight camera. Designed with advanced optics, it lets you shoot gorgeous photos and 1080p HD video.
iOS. The world’s most advanced mobile operating system.
iOS is the magic behind iPad. It lets you see and do everything using Multi-Touch. It includes all the powerful, innovative, and fun built-in apps you use every day, many times a day. It’s the preferred choice for app developers. And it’s yet another reason no other device comes close to iPad.
iCloud. Your content. On all your devices.
iCloud stores your music, photos, apps, mail, contacts, calendars, documents, and more and wirelessly pushes them to all your devices. So if you buy a song, take a photo, or edit a calendar event on your iPad, iCloud makes sure it appears on your Mac, iPhone, and iPod touch, too. You don’t have to do a thing.
Dictation. Talking is the new typing.
Write an email. Send a text. Search the web. Or create a note. And do it all with only your voice. Instead of typing, tap the microphone icon on the keyboard. Then say what you want to say while your iPad listens. When you’re done, tap anywhere on the screen and, just like that, your spoken words become written words. Dictation also works with third-party apps, so you can do things like update your Facebook status or share a thought on your Twitter feed.
App Store. Something for everyone. And everything.
Apps for iPad aren’t like anything else. That’s because every app â€” 200,000 and counting â€” is designed to work with iPad features like the beautiful 9.7-inch screen, Multi-Touch, the accelerometer, the gyroscope, and more.
iPad Smart Cover. Designed for iPad. And vice versa. (Sold separately)

AirPlay. Play it on your iPad. Watch it on your HDTV.
