The Apple 16GB New iPad with Wi-Fi + 4G (Verizon, Black) 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.
The 4G LTE version supports wireless data networks with fast speeds up to 4G LTE. This capability allows you to use your iPad almost anywhere you go and makes use of high speed cellular networks across a large frequency spectrum. You can even switch SIM cards for use while traveling internationally. In addition to support for a quickened network, the iPad can also be used as a personal hotspot for sharing the data connection with your computer. With carrier support, up to 5 devices can be tethered to the iPad via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or USB connection.
All of the internal features function via the robust iOS operating system for extremely fluid navigation and multi-touch use. iCloud support is maintained and allows you to wirelessly sync all of your information and data between multiple devices. And for even greater functionality with your iOS devices, dictation is now supported allowing you to simply talk in order to type. You can speak your emails, texts, notes, or web searches and have the written words automatically appear. A plethora of apps designed specifically for the iPad are also available, easily attained from the App Store. These apps are formatted especially for the vivid 9.7" display and support the integral functions of the device.
