Apple has announced its 4th generation full size iPad, just 7 months after the release of its third generation "New" iPad.
While we expected the iPad Mini, this is the first time Apple has replaced an iPad within the same year.
The 4th generation iPad is powered by an A6X chip that promises processing speeds twice as fast as the old "New" iPad, and will also download over WiFi at twice the speed.
Externally it's much the same, except with the new, smaller Lightning connector introduced with the iPhone 5. As with the iPad Mini, it should also be compatible with Australia's 4G networks, unlike the model released earlier this year.
The New New iPad 4 with Retina Display (it's called something like that) will be available to order alongside the iPad Mini from November 2.
