When you hold the Apple iPad with Retina display, it just makes sense. With double the processing power, enhanced wireless connectivity, and Apple's acclaimed Retina display, you'll be able to do more with your music, photos, and movies than ever before. Stream videos from your iPad to your HDTV via AirPlay, manage your digital files with iCloud, or get to know Siri, the iPad's intelligent assistant. Whether you're enjoying music, getting creative, or just surfing the web, it just feels right on the Apple iPad with Retina display.
Apple iPad with Retina Display at a Glance:
Twice the power, twice the speed
Stunning Retina display
New Lightning connector - smaller and more powerful
Advanced Wi-Fi for faster performance
Twice the power, twice the speed Inside the Apple iPad with Retina display, you'll find the A6X processor - Apple's most powerful mobile chip yet. You get twice the graphics and CPU performance that the previous generation A5X chip offered. That means graphics move fluidly, Apps launch faster, and your photos and videos will look sharper than ever.
Stunning Retina display The gorgeous Retina display on the Apple iPad has a million more pixels than your HDTV. At normal viewing distance, your eye won't be able to distinguish individual pixels. That means text remains sharp, photos look vibrant and alive, and games come to life with more realism than ever.
New Lightning connector - smaller and more powerful Ditching the bulk of the old 30-pin connector, the Apple iPad now sports a Lighting connector. The new Lighting connector is 80% smaller than the 30-pin connector, making your iPad even more portable. And because the Lighting cable is reversible, there's no wrong way to plug in the cable. If you have accessories with 30-pin connectors that you'd like to use with your new iPad, just get a Lighting to 30-pin adapter (sold separately).
Advanced Wi-Fi for faster performance With dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi, plus support for channel bonding, your iPad can reach download speeds up to 150 Mbps. From surfing the web to uploading photos and videos, you'll immediately notice the faster performance of the Apple iPad.
