How does the new iPad improve the iPad 2?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past two weeks, and have had your hands over your ears for the past 24 hours, you’ll have noticed that Apple unveiled its latest iPad last night.

Launched in San Francisco by Apple CEO Tim Cook, the new iPad has instantly become the best tablet out there at the moment.

With Cook claiming to “have redefined once again the category Apple created”, other manufacturers will be playing catch-up once more with the US tech giant.

If you’re not a big Apple fan, the new iPad will look pretty exactly the same as every previous iPad. So how exactly does the new device improve on the iPad 2?

iPad Display

By the far the biggest improvement, and one that everyone in the tech world had been expecting, was in the new iPad’s display.

The display has blown all other tablets out of the water, including the iPad 2, with a 2048 x 1536 resolution. The retina display is sharper than most 40-inch HD TVs, and has four times the number of pixels than the iPad 2.

iPad Camera

A big qualm amongst iPad 2 users was the substandard camera, and Apple has been quick to rectify this in the new iPad.

The camera has been boosted to 5MP, rivalling some smartphone cameras out there. It has also been given 1080p video recording – something the iPad 2 could only dream of.

iPad Connectivity

This one only really applies to our friends across the pond at the moment, but the new iPad comes with 4G LTE connectivity.

We’re still waiting for 4G over here, but when we finally get our act together the iPad 4G will be ready and waiting.

Siri on the iPad

Everyone’s favourite virtual assistant has made the move from the iPhone 4S to the new iPad. Siri is a great piece of software, and a welcome addition to the iPad.

So while the new iPad may look like the iPad 2 from a distance, all you need to do is turn it on to see the massive difference.
