It’s here! Well, they’re here. That is, the iPad 4 (going by the new of “iPad with Retina Display”) and iPad mini are in the house. Both iPads, in a way, try to fix what’s wrong with the current iPad: it’s thick and heavy, and it’s laggy at times. The iPad 4 addresses the latter problem by including the Apple A6x CPU, which is a dual-core, quad-core GPU chip that is supposed to be twice as fast as the iPad 3. And the iPad mini addresses the former issue by being super thin and super light. In this video we cover a few first impressions:
First impressions for the iPad mini:
- The screen resolution is a bit painful, especially if you are already used to the Retina on the iPad 3. But, if you are coming from an iPad 2 or 1, it won’t be as noticeable
- Finally, comfortable portrait-typing on the iPad!
- The mini feels as quick as the iPad 2. We still see a bit of lag, but overall, it’s quite snappy
