Just before the Apple team lifted the lid on the highly anticipated iPad Mini we’ve all been waiting for, the 4th generation iPad was unveiled. Yep, a new full-sized iPad too.

The 4th generation device includes the new Lightning connector (no surprises there then), a HD version of its front facing camera and FaceTime and 10 hours of battery life. The device is packing an A6X chip, connectivity with LTE and much better Wi-Fi performance to boot.

Despite being an improved version of its predecessor the price of the tablet is actually staying the same at $499.

This post is being updated throughout the night.
