The latest model, which goes on sale in the UK on 16 March, feartures the highest-resolution display ever seen on a mobile device, according to Apple.
The display on the new model features 3.1 million pixels – which is four times as many as the iPad 2.
Apple says the pixels ‘are so dense that the human eye is unable to distinguise individual pixels when held at normal distance, making web pages, text, images and video look incredibly sharp and realistic’.
The new model also features a five megapixel camera and built-in 4G. It also supports dictation.
Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, says, ‘The new iPad redefines the category Apple created less than two years ago.’
The new iPad will go on sale for £399 and be available in black or white.
