iPad 3 will be the iPad 2 with a new label

Nothing to see here, queue here please


Following the success of the iPhone 4S which sported minimal changes to the spec, Apple has decided to relaunch the iPad 3 which is the same as the iPad 2.

The new iPad’s body is so slightly thicker than the iPad 2 that the change is unnoticeable on first inspection; a roughly 1mm increase will barely be perceptible to users.'

'On the rear, the camera in the upper left corner has become bigger—noticeably so when placed alongside the iPad 2, but not so huge that anyone would think they were different at a distance. 'These changes are so modest that Apple could easily call this device the iPad 2S,' says Horwitz.
