iPad Mini also announced.
Apple’s Phil Schiller, during a presentation today, announced a brand new iPad, just 7 months after the last model came out. Regarding the product, he said that the “fourth-generation iPad” will have a ten-hour battery life and significantly more powerful graphics than the iPad 3, which was released in March.
It will use an A6 chip—with double the performance of the third iPad’s A5 chip, Apple says—and the Lightning connector pin announced last month with the iPhone 5. The fourth-gen iPad will also have the same price and configurations as the third iPad. It comes in both black and white.

iPad Mini was also announced. It boasts a 7.9-inch display, and has the same 1,024 x 768 resolution as the iPad 2. The new hardware is 7.2mm thick, .68 pounds heavy and has been manufactured with a new process with the same anodized edges as the iPhone 5. “While Phil Schiller didn’t mention the Nexus 7 or Google directly, he compared the new device against its rival in terms of its app library and screen size. He claimed that the .9-inch increase in diagonal space gives Apple’s slate 35 percent more display area than Google and ASUS’ collaboration.
