The new iPads: What you need to know

Macworld Staff | Oct. 25, 2012
Between Apple’s presentation at its Tuesday press event, the press releases and spec sheets that followed, and our all-too-brief hands-on session, we’ve been able to get a pretty good first impression of the new iPad mini and, to a lesser extent, the fourth-generation iPad. So while we wait for our review units to arrive, here’s what we know so far.

Speaking of wireless, the new iPad also has upgraded LTE circuitry thats compatible with more carriers around the worldand with Sprint in the United States.

Has the price of the full-size iPad changed?

No. As usual, Apple has updated the iPad line but kept prices the same. This means that the entry-level fourth-generation iPad, which includes 16GB of storage and Wi-Fi, is $499. $599 gets you 32GB of storage, while $699 buys 64GB. If you want LTE cellular data, you tack on $130, for a total of $629, $729, or $829, respectively. The 16GB iPad 2not the third-generation iPad, which has been discontinuedis still available at $399 for the Wi-Fi version and $529 for the 3G cellular-data model.
