What is iPad?

iPad is a line of tablet computers designed and marketed by Apple Inc., which runs Apple's iOS. The first iPad was released on April 3, 2010; the most recent iPad models-- the iPad Air and second generation iPad Mini, were revealed on October 22, 2013 and went on sale in 2013. The user interface is built around the device's multi-touch screen, including a virtual keyboard. The iPad has built-in Wi-Fi and, on some models, cellular connectivity. There have been over 170 million iPads sold since its release in 2010. With the AirX feature developed by Macgo Team, Blu-ray movies can be shared between computer (Mac & PC) and iPad in the same Wi-Fi environment. Users are finally able to experience the most wonderful blu-ray effects on iPad.

What does it do?

An iPad can shoot videos, take photos, play music, and perform Internet functions such as web-browsing and emailing. Other functions—games, reference, GPS navigation, social networking, etc.—can be enabled by downloading and installing apps. As of October 2013, the App Store has more than 475,000 native apps by Apple and third parties.

Versions and Features

1-      The first generation established design precedents, such as the 9.7-inch screen size and button placement, which have persisted through all models.

2-      The iPad 2 added a dual core Apple A5 processor and VGA front-facing and 720p rear-facing cameras designed for FaceTime video calling.

3-      The third generation added a Retina Display, the new Apple A5Xprocessor with a quad-core graphics processor, a 5-megapixel camera, HD 1080p video recording, voice dictation, and 4G (LTE).

4-      The fourth generation added the Apple A6X processor and replaced the 30-pin connector with an all-digital Lightning connector.

5-      The iPad Air added the Apple A7 processor, the Apple M7 motion coprocessor and reduced the form factor for the first time since the iPad 2. iOS 5.1 added Siri to iPad Mini and the third and fourth generations.

Note:
