The New iPad in easy steps helps you make the most of this new version of the iPad, launched in March 2012, including its key new features, which are: Retina display Four times more pixels than iPad 2. Razor-sharp text. Richer colours. The Retina display transforms the entire iPad experience. So everything looks and feels incredibly lifelike and perfectly detailed. The Retina display on the new iPad features a 2048-by-1536 resolution, 44 percent greater colour saturation, and 3.1 million pixels - in the same 9.7-inch space. That's four times the number of pixels in iPad 2 and a million more than an HDTV. The new and powerful A5X chip drives power to every one of the 3.1 million pixels in the display and its quad-core graphics processing makes everything you do on iPad feel incredibly responsive.

From the little things like swiping, scrolling, and pinching to the big things like editing photos in the new iPhoto, applying titles and transitions in iMovie, and, of course, playing games. Instant on. Touch and go Each time you press the Home button or open the Smart Cover, it's ready to go, instantly. That's the work of flash storage. It's fast and reliable, so you can get to your apps and do whatever you need to do, pronto. The iSight camera 5-megapixel iSight camera. Designed with advanced optics, it lets you take photos and shoot 1080p HD video with automatic video stabilization. Next-generation wireless technology. Ultrafast 4G LTE Built with the latest in wireless technology, the new iPad lets you connect to fast data networks around the world - up to 4G LTE. The new iPad offers the most comprehensive support for networks around the world. It's designed with cellular antennas that access a larger frequency spectrum. That means you can get online almost anywhere you. You can even pop in a local SIM card to get a connection when you're travelling. iPad as a personal hotspot Share the high-speed data connection on your iPad. If your carrier supports it, iPad can act as a personal hotspot for connecting up to five devices - such as a MacBook Air, an iPod touch, or another iPad - over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or USB. iCloud iCloud stores your music, photos, apps, mail, contacts, calendars, documents, and more and wirelessly pushes them to all your devices.

So if you buy a song, take a photo, or edit a calendar event on your iPad, iCloud makes sure it appears on your Mac, iPhone, and iPod touch, too. Dictation Write an email, send a text, search the web, create a note and do it all with only your voice. Instead of typing, tap the microphone icon on the keyboard. Then say what you want to say while your iPad listens. Tap Done and, just like that, your spoken words become written words. Dictation also works with third-party apps, so you can do things like update your Facebook status or share a thought on your Twitter feed. App Store The App Store is home to over 200,000 apps and counting - all made just for iPad, many of them free. Apple's beautiful iPhoto app on the new iPad is just one of thousands of apps that let you do things with iPad you never thought possible. With iPhoto in the picture, the iLife family of apps for iPad - including GarageBand and iMovie - is complete. AirPlay Whether it's the new album you bought, photos of your Barcelona escapade, or an HD movie, AirPlay lets you stream wirelessly what's on your iPad straight to your speakers and HDTV. The New iPad in easy steps is an ideal guide to help you make the most of your new device.
