The Rare "iPad 2,4" Brings Improved Battery Life

clock May 5, 2012 00:25 by author Jeremy

With the New iPad out, the iPad 2 recently experienced a price-cut on its models, with the lowest 16GB WiFi iPad 2 available for $399. And therein lies the difference between models: their connectivity. The 1st type of iPad 2 is WiFi only (iPad 2,1), the second is WiFi and GSM (iPad 2,2), while the third is WiFi and CDMA (iPad 2,3). Which brings us to the topic at hand: the fourth-type, known as "iPad 2,4".

So what's the difference in connectivity? Like the 1st iteration, the iPad 2,4 is WiFi only. It's specialty, however, lies in the SoC (System on a Chip); in the iPad's case, it's more commonly known as the A5 chip, or the processor. Previous iPad 2's all had the same 45nm A5 SoC, while our new contender uses a 32nm A5 SoC.

How does this affect you? A 32nm processor is going to be more efficient overall than a 45nm processor. The end result is that owners will get (according to AnandTech) slightly better battery life.

The only downside is that there's no real way to tell outside of the box whether you're getting one of these new models. Once you open up the box, however, you can run a benchmark test or a battery test to see the specs of your iPad. So if you're going to purchase an iPad 2 sometime soon, start hoping you'll get the better end of this bargain.

Apple's Marth 7th Event: Possibly the New iPad 3

clock February 28, 2012 23:55 by author Jeremy

There are probably more rumors going around about the iPad 3 than there are about the new kid that joins your high school mid-year. "I heard this iPad 3 was kicked out of his last school for fighting!" Oh yeah? Well I heard that this iPad 3 will a slightly upgraded processor. Gasp! Oh, rumors.

However, after much gossiping and waiting, we finally have a real piece of information about it, in the form of a launch event. On 10 AM of Wednesday, March 7th, Apple will hold a more-than-likely iPad-related-event in the Yerba Buena Center for Arts Theater in San Francisco. Why is it "more than likely", you ask? Well, the picture they've sent above seems to relay that message to us fairly clearly.

clock September 8, 2011 12:14 by author Ty

Apple iPad 3

Apple’s next generation iPad 3 is to be built with thinner, lighter, longer lasting, and more expensive batteries. Pricing for the batteries from the manufacturers will be 20-30% higher in price than iPad 2 batteries from Simplo Technology Co. and Dynapack International Technology Corp., which are Apple’s contract suppliers for iPad and Macbook batteries. The new battery packs for the iPad 3 will start being manufactured the first quarter of 2012.

The good news? Ipad 3 battery packs will be delivered starting the fourth quarter of 2012, which might project a new iPad 3 by early spring 2013.
