Apple surprised all and sundry on 23 October by unveiling a brand new iPad 4, which with immediate effect replaces the iPad 3.
Sporting a new Lightning connector, as debuted on the iPhone 5, and with a new Apple A6X processor, it’s a modest upgrade but one that will no doubt keep the company’s Christmas sales ticking along nicely.
The new tablet was unveiled alongside a new iPad mini, a new Mac mini and a stunning new 13in Mac Book pro Retina, and will be arriving well in time for Christmas and Thanksgiving thanks to an iPad 4 release date of 2 November.
So, is it worth upgrading from the iPad, iPad 2 or even iPad 3? Let’s take a closer look.

Apple hasn’t updated the display on the iPad 4 from the stunning Retina display of the iPad 3. As such it has the same 2,048 x 1,536 pixel super high resolution that results in a pin-sharp 264ppi. The LCD panel also has superb color saturation and viewing angles. In short, it’s still the best on the market.
