Thinner, lighter and full of great ideas.
Once you pick up iPad 2, it'll be hard to put down. That's the idea behind the all-new design. It's 33 percent thinner and up to 15 percent lighter, so it feels even more comfortable in your hands. And it makes surfing the web, checking email, watching videos and reading books so natural, you might forget there's incredible technology under your fingers.
Dual-core A5 chip. It's fast, times two.
Two powerful cores in one A5 chip mean iPad can do twice the work at once. You'll notice the difference when you're surfing the web, watching videos, making FaceTime video calls, gaming and going from app to app to app. Multitasking is smoother, apps load faster and everything just works better.
Superfast graphics. Go, gamers, go.
With up to nine times the graphics performance, gameplay on iPad is even smoother and more realistic. And faster graphics help apps perform better - especially those with video. You'll see it when you're scrolling through your photo library, editing video with iMovie and viewing animations in Keynote.
Battery life keeps on going. So you can, too.
Even with the new thinner and lighter design, iPad has the same amazing 10 hour battery life. That's enough juice for one flight across the ocean or one video-watching all-nighter or a week's commute across town. The power efficient A5 chip and iOS keep battery life from fading away, so you can get carried away.
Two cameras. And a big hello to FaceTime for iPad.
You'll see two cameras on iPad - one on the front and one on the back. They may be tiny, but they're a big deal. They're designed for FaceTime video calling and they work together so you can talk to your favourite people and see them smile and laugh back at you. The front camera puts you and your friend face-to-face. Switch to the back camera during your video call to share where you are, who you're with or what's going on around you. When you're not using FaceTime, let the back camera roll if you see something video-worthy. It's HD, so whatever you shoot is a mini-masterpiece. And you can take wacky snapshots in Photo Booth. It's the most fun a face can have.
iPad Smart Cover. Designed for iPad. And vice versa.
iPad 2 and the iPad Smart Cover are made for each other. Literally. We designed the iPad Smart Cover to work side-by-side with iPad - and on top and underneath it, too. Smart magnetic technology built into each really pulls them together. The iPad Smart Cover falls perfectly into place and stays put to protect your iPad screen, yet doesn't add bulk to its thin, light design. Open the Smart Cover and your iPad wakes up instantly. Close it and your iPad goes to sleep automatically. And here's another smart part: It transforms into the perfect video-watching, game-playing, web-surfing stand. It comes in 10 bright colours - including five in rich, aniline-dyed Italian leather. Choose your favourite and your iPad will be smart all around.
LED-backlit display. The view is amazing.
iPad is one big, beautiful display - 9.7 inches of high-resolution photos, videos, web pages, books and more. LED backlighting makes everything you see remarkably crisp, vivid and bright. Even in places with low light, like an airplane. And there's no wrong way to hold iPad. It's designed to show off everything in portrait and landscape, so with every turn (even upside down), the display adjusts to fit. Because it uses a display technology called IPS (in-plane switching), it has a wide, 178 degree viewing angle. Hold it up to someone across the room or share it with someone sitting next to you and everyone gets a brilliant view.
Multi-Touch. Everything's at your fingertips.
Technology is at its best when it feels completely natural, almost like there's no technology at all. That's Multi-Touch on iPad. You use your fingers to do everything, so everything you do - surfing the web, typing email, reading books and swiping through photos - is easier and a lot more fun. how does it work? When your fingers touch the display, it senses them using electrical fields. Then it instantly transforms your taps, swipes, pinches and flicks into lifelike actions. Just like that.
