Apple launched iPad 3 along with the Apple TV and is quite similar to the iPad 2. There are few hardware improvements in the new iPad 3 but it is not having anything special. Apple’s iPad 3 is nothing revolutionary, but is simply another version of the iPad series. There are few things, which Apple has not addressed such as the camera problem, and it is still a problem in the iPad 3.
IPad 3 design is similar to its predecessor. To make it even worse it is thicker by 0.6mm and heavier by 50g than the iPad 2. The home button is at the same place as it was earlier. But it must be said that it is much faster than its predecessor and the screen is heavily improved in this version of the iPad. One of the advantages with this iPad 3 is its ability to help developers to create apps and will use all the features of it to give it an amazing look. The curvy edges make it very easy to hold and the aluminum chassis looks great on the eye. iPad 3 consists of four buttons which are home button, volume rocker, mute key and power button, which can also be used for looking purpose.
This is the most important feature of the new iPad 3. It is one of the best features of this tablet as compared to the other tablets, which are present in the market. The 9.7 inch screen of 1536 x 2048 resolutions is superb. The screen display may be affected by the fact that it misses on the AMOLED HD but it’s not that bad. Vivid and vibrant color outputs will mesmerize you. Activities such as viewing snaps, watching videos, playing games, internet browsing has also improved drastically in the iPad 3.
iOS 5.1 operating system is used in the iPad 3. If you are familiar with the iPhone, then using this tablet will not be a problem as they are using same operating system. The only recognizable difference is the larger icons. Moving through the home screens is very zippy and enjoyable and the performance is not affected by the number of apps you might have installed. The home screen can be filed with many apps. If you want several apps to be located in a folder, then you can do that very easily. One additional feature, which is inspired by the Android OS is the notification bar. Notifications such as new arrived emails, updates of your friends on various social network websites etc can be view from the notification bar.
Battery and Connectivity:
Battery power has improved by quite a margin than the earlier version i.e. iPad 2. Retina display and 4G connections don’t help the cause of the battery life. You need to charge the tablet in every 3 days. For connectivity Bluetooth 4.0 is used, which consumes less power than the iPad 2. Other connectivity options are NFC, Wi-Fi direct, gyroscope and GPS.
There is nothing special in the latest version of the iPad, but if you are looking for a latest Apple tablet, then it is a very good option for you. Camera still needs improvement but overall this tablet is very good.
