The question that is probably swirling around your mind now is ‘how do I know which iPad model is the right one for me?’. To add to the confusion, Apple is revamping the naming of almost the entire iPad family. With the introduction of iPad mini, Apple has now renamed the new iPad simply as iPad. No, there is no iPad 3. If you ever wonder why, it is an amusing question that everyone has been asking. Other than the name upgrade (or downgrade – it has been stripped of the new phrase), iPad sees minor changes to its specification. Now everyone is confused as what name should they use to refer to the iPad. Is it still the third generation iPad? Or is it now considered as fourth generation iPad? I’ll use the iPad instead to describe it. So, the iPad now comes with faster A6X processor and lightning connector.
Fortunately, the Apple marketing team have anticipated this confusion early. Below is a snapshot taken from Apple’s page that compares members of the iPad family.
