The Fourth Generation iPad Could Arrive As Early As September
For those customers that stood in line just four months ago to buy the new iPad, we’ve got some disappointing news for you. Apple may release the fourth-generation iPad as early as this September, according to Apple Daily and Digitimes. According to sources, the new tablet will include a better performing battery and an enlarged camera lens. Additionally, the newer new iPad could come with Sharp’s new IGZO display and a thinner case. Assuming this report is true, it could be Apple’s way of validating a concern many have had with the new iPad’s battery life. Additionally, it would be the strongest indication yet that Cupertino wants to diminish Samsung’s role as an iDevice supplier. Recall that the two technology companies remain embroiled in ongoing patent disputes with Apple believing Samsung copied the iPad when it released the Galaxy Nexus. In June, news first surfaced that the next iPad would include Sharp’s IGZO display. The current iPads use screens made by Samsung.
