4.0 out of 5 stars IPad '4' Review (with notes from 3), November 27, 2012
If you're still curious about whether an IPad is right for you.. you could probably do best going to all the reviews from the IPad 2 or 3. Here I am going to talk about what 'new' features you see in the IPad 4 (also called the 'new' IPad).

First off.. they don't make the IPad 3 anymore.. when this was created it was immediately a replacement for the IPad 3. There wasn't a lot of fanfare as this wasn't a huge upgrade over the 3 and was just released with the new IPad Mini.

The two main features (for those in the US):
- Retina display.. I never thought the display was bad, but this is an improvement. Compared next to the original IPad 3 there is a difference, albeit not overly noticeable unless you get an app that was made for the retina display (not many out there yet as the product isn't even 30 days old yet). The glare issue is still there. If you're using this outside it's basically like looking in the mirror if the sun is at a bad angle. Nothing changed on that front.
- Faster speed. Same as above I never thought it was an issue but when using some speed tests it is faster and you'll notice, especially when multitasking, the apps run smoother with less 'hitches'.

- Like the IPad Mini and the new phone it has the 8-pin adapter and not the 'old' 30 pin insert.

Everything else.. the exact same as the former IPad 3. Battery life is great and while I'm not a 'heavy' user of the IPad (mainly used for web surfing, basic apps, etc..) it fits all of my needs. Overall, if you have the IPad 3 should you upgrade? I don't see a major reason unless you're the type that HAS to have the latest and greatest. I just happened to finally be in the market for one (after years of indifference) and with my roommate having the IPad 3 it was an easy comparison.
