The Apple iPad 4 is a 2012 tablet and the fourth generation model of the original iPad. It  received universal acclaim from critics, combining an excellent form factor with rock solid hardware and software for an unmatched premium tablet experience. This model introduces a more powerful processor than it’s predecessor as well as new high resolution ‘Retina Display’, but on the downside some reviews were critical of  the tablets weight and relative battery life which were not improved on from the iPad 3.

    The latest iPad adds several tweaks and improvements to secure its position at the top of the tablet heap. It's better all around, but third-gen owners need not apply.

    Faster, prettier and more featured, the new iPad mini is everything we hoped it would be. Although there was nothing that we didn't expect, it should be noted that this is a tablet that ticks every box.
