Apple today announced an update to its full-size iPad, upgrading its processor with a faster A6X chip and implementing the new Lightning connector that debuted with the iPhone 5. The new processor delivers up to two times the CPU and graphics performance of the prior chip, while maintaining 10 hours of battery life and the same design as the prior iPad.
The new iPad comes in Black and White with 16, 32 and 64GB option. There is still the option to have a cellular version which now carries worldwide LTE support unlike the iPad 3.
The iPad 3 had limited support with LTE and would only be compatible with CellC in South Africa, however the new iPad with Retina display will be supported by Vodacom and MTN.
The iPad with Retina display remains the same price as the iPad 3.
The WiFi version should be available in South Africa in early December with the cellular version expected early 2013.
