Another aspect that Apple is planning to revise is the new iPad's LED which supposedly makes it hotter than usual. Despite that, Apple has assured users that it would not affect the Retina Display that the new iPad has.
The touch-screen panel in the new iPad would undergo revision as well. Reports state that the new iPad will utilize Sharp's indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO) panel technology. This would transition into having a thinner profile for the new iPad as well as "longer battery life". This would also mean that Apple will be changing supplier from Samsung to Sharp.
The overheating issue has been plaguing the new iPad ever since it was released in the market. Despite that, the new iPad has been performing well in the market due to the 9.7-inch Retina display feature in its display. Other features of the new iPad includes A5X quad-core graphic processor, 5MP camera with advanced optics, a backside illumination sensor, auto white balance, and face detection.
The new iPad is already available in Australia with a selling price of AU$539 (16GB), AU$649 (32GB), and AU$759 (64GB) for Wi-Fi model. As for Wi-Fi + Cellular model, the price range is from AU$679 (16GB), AU$789 (32GB), and AU$899 (64GB).
