Apple CEO Tim Cook introduces the new iPad during an event in San Francisco.
The new iPad’s key features include an unusually high-resolution screen, support for the 4G technology known as LTE and a microprocessor chip with more powerful graphics circuitry that helps render realistic-looking videogames.
The new iPad has retina display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. It features a 5 MP camera on the back. The new iPad supports 1080p video recording.
“We’ve taken it to a whole new level and we are redefining the category that Apple created with the original iPad,” said Apple chief Tim Cook at a press conference in San Francisco.
It will be available starting March 16 in the U.S. and 10 other countries.
