The new Apple iPad is finally here and we’ve got the 16GB Wi-Fi version to review for you. The new Apple iPad features the Apple A5X chip, which provides a dual-core processor and quad-core graphics. As well as these, the battery has also been improved to bring the same 10 hours of battery life, which we saw on the iPad two, whilst using the brand new Retina Display. However, if you’ve already got an iPad 2 is the upgrade worth it? Let’s find out…

Design

Both the look and feel haven’t really changed in the new iPad, from what they were like on the iPad 2, however a slight weight increase and 1mm thickness increase has occurred because of the new battery and Retina Display.

Moving around the sides of the device, you’ll see the usual buttons and ports, including the 30-pin charger port for charging and hooking up to your computer, the volume rockers on the right side, and then along the top we have the power / lock button, microphone and 3.5mm headphone jack.

The front of the iPad features the front-facing camera, which hasn’t been upgraded unfortunately so you’ve still got the VGA quality photos and video at 30 frames per second.

You’ve also got the home button along the bottom, as usual.

The 9.7-inch Retina Display is, again, in exactly the same place as it always is, and even though we haven’t turned it on yet it somehow seems better already!

Turn the iPad around and you can see that we’ve got all of the standard copyright information, Apple logo and of course the, now dubbed “iSight”, 5-megapixel camera.
