Apple announces new 4th gen iPad with A6X chip, HD FaceTime, Lightning



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.
