The third and latest generation of Apple's popular iOS tablet, the new iPad was announced on May 7th and will be made available in some retail stores by March 16th. One of the largest features of the new iPad is its Retina display with a 2048 x 1536 resolution, containing 1 million more pixels than the standard 1080p HDTV on a 9.7-inch display. Other new features of the latest iPad include, 4g LTE connectivity, a new five-megapixel rear facing camera and the new A5X processor with quad core graphics. Read on for the latest Apple iPad news, reviews and videos:

    One of the most persistent rumors surrounding Apple's next-generation iPad is that this release will mark Apple moving up to a much higher density Retina display for the tablet. Supposedly, the display would have a resolution of 2048x1536, doubling both the horizontal and vertical pixel counts of the iPad 2's 1024x768 screen for an effective quadrupling of the total number of pixels. Now, that aspect of the tablet's design seems all but confirmed, upon the discovery of a screen component matching the rumored specs. MacRumors got its hands on what was supposed to be an iPad 3 display panel. ...

    The closer we're getting to that certain iPad 3 event -- believed to be happening at the beginning of next month -- the more the rumors we hear about the next Apple tablet. We've already heard of alleged "Retina" display, upgraded processor and even a possible announcement date but the rumor mill doesn't stop here. The picture you see above is claimed to be taken of an actual, existing and very much real iPad 3. NextMedia claims they also have some specs to go with the next Apple tablet, which will generally look very much like the iPad 2, except for the more pronounced tapering on its ...

    The back-and-forth nature of rumors addressing Apple's processor choice for the iPad 3 has been keeping us guessing. Will it be dual-core? Quad-core? One of the only bits of evidence we have to go on is a debug screenshot identifying the processor model as a S5L8945X. With the 30X and 40X known as the A4 and A5, we've been wondering if that means the 45X would be the rumored A6. A newly-leaked screenshot, supposedly of the iPad 3's logic board, not suggests that the processor will take a different name, showing off a chip labeled as the A5X. If Apple truly intends to release the iPad 3 ...

    This Sunday we've heard new rumors regarding the upcoming iPad 2 refresh together with reports concerning a new camera -- one of eight-megapixels -- which was hinted by the picture of an alleged iPad 3 shell case, thicker, more tapered. Now another set of images is here to claim that the iPad 3 will indeed be thicker, as seen in the picture above. Even though the design is rumored to be just 1-2 mm thicker, because of the tapering, the alleged iPad 3 case definitely looks thicker than the iPad 2 to the naked eye but it will feel thinner in hand, according to reports. Same rumors imply that ...

    Over the last month or so, we've really seen interest in Apple's next tablet heat up. Presumably to be called the iPad 3, we've spent the last several weeks fielding rumors about the tablet's hardware, checking out some leaked photos, and wondering when Apple will finally announce the device. We looked at one pretty well-reasoned argument that the day would finally come on March 7, based on the timing for past Apple iPad events and scheduling availability for the venue the company seemed likely to use. Sure enough, today Apple's sending-out invitations to just such a March 7 event, along ...

    It's official. Apple has set a date for what's sure to be the most important tablet announcement of 2012: the unveiling of the third-generation iPad. The coming week will bring a flurry of media anticipation and commentary, with some retrospectives on the iPad's legacy, and speculation on what's to come. Before the inevitable lines start forming at Apple stores around the country, though, we thought we'd take a look at some changes we'd like to see in the next iteration of the iPad's OS. Let's chat. Multitasking The two dominant tablet OSes on the market today have a number of differences, ...

    When we looked at a couple new rumors about iPad hardware earlier today, we mentioned expecting a spate of such claims to surface over the course of the next week, leading up to Apple's event on Wednesday, March 7. Sure enough, now we're checking out some evidence that suggests Apple may not be planning to go with the name iPad 3, and the tablet could be the iPad HD, instead. To be fair, there hasn't been much evidence so far supporting any one possible name for Apple's next-gen iPad, and that includes iPad 3. Gizmodo got to digging around some product listings from accessory ...

    Ready for your daily dose of iPad rumors? Yesterday, we looked at a couple rumors about new entries in the iPad product family and one claiming that the tablet might end up named the iPad HD. Information supporting the latter arose through analyzing server logs, which also showed evidence left behind by devices claiming to run the 2048 x 1536 resolution we're expecting for the new iPad. Today we see some more log evidence along that line, as well as some that shows signs of the arrival of iOS 6.0. After Gizmodo ran its stats for yesterday's news, today's data comes courtesy of Ars ...

    We will know better in a couple of days but, until then, sources indicate the new iPad 3 will be launched with the same prices as its predecessors. While rumors suggested a $70-80 price increase for the third incarnation of the iPad, more recent news shows Apple's new tablet to come with a price range from $499 for 16GB Wi-Fi to $829 for 64GB Wi-Fi + 3G. The information could prove to be accurate, as Apple has a tradition of not raising prices too much from one generation to the other. The same source also debunks rumors concerning Apple's intentions to move to an 8GB/16GB/32GB iPad 3 ...

    "It's obvious that the only iPad killer is always going to be the newest iPad." The tweet from web- and mobile developer Zhephree caught my eye with its uncommon boldness. Wow, I thought, someone's not afraid to drop some truth bombs. The next tweet, though, brought us back down to Earth. Zhephree's statement had fallen under a fellow follower's fire, so his response was: "The simple fact that I don't own an iPad disproves my tweet, that was just a joke." I believe him; I started following Zhephree on Twitter because he was developing apps for webOS back when it was a viable competitor, ...

    With the expected launch of the iPad 3 /or HD -- rumored to be equipped with 4G LTE -- on Wednesday, everybody seems to want a part of the huge buzz around Apple and its products and Verizon is no stranger to that. A curious message was posted on Verizon's web page recently, saying that "Something Is Coming". Now, we all know that something will come soon and most of us agree it will be the next iPad but this doesn't necessary mean that it will come to Verizon too. You might remember that the carrier got its iPhone quite late and the experience could be repeated with the iPad 3 (fingers ...

    Tomorrow we'll almost certainly be hearing Apple announce the next entry in its iPad line of tablets. Over the past weeks and months, there's been no shortage of rumors about the iPad's planned hardware; some components like the new higher-resolution screen seem like a lock, while we continue to here arguments on both sides of the dual-core vs. quad-core argument right up to the end. In addition to the capabilities of the tablet itself, there's one other relevant piece of unknown info we haven't heard discussed as much: when might this next iPad actually go up for sale following Apple's ...

    With Apple's next generation iPad just a couple of hours away, one of our biggest sources of speculation has to do with its biggest part – the screen. Some believe that the device will double its pixels in order to provide a similar "retina display" experience that we found on the iPhone 4, and others feel that Apple will simply bump the screen resolution to support 1080p. Sadly the only tool we have against speculation is history, and so far Apple's move in doubling the pixels of the iPhone 3GS from 320x480 at 163 ppi to 640x960 at 326 ppi with the iPhone 4 says a lot. It's important to ...

    More evidence, available recently, supports the idea that Apple will double iPad 3's/HD's RAM to 1GB. As the countdown for today's event approaches the end, all bets are on. We all remember the original iPad coming with 256 MB of RAM, and the iPad 2 featuring 512 MB – the same amount as the iPhone 4. In a logical order, the next iPad should feature 1GB of RAM, as we actually do expect. An iOS hacker (you all know Chronic) seems to agree with this hypothesis after studying a debug output from an iPad development unit, believed to be the third generation of Cupertino's tablet. Using this ...
