Apple has introduced the fourth-generation of iPad with the changes we had heard about earlier itself and which include a new Chip, Global LTE support and more.

As expected with the fourth generation of iPad, Apple has doubled the processing power with the adding of the A6X processor which also doubles the graphic power in comparison to the previous A5X chip.
With this, Apple has also included the FaceTime HD camera on the new iPad and now arrives with faster WiFi and additional LTE carrier support worldwide. The screen remains the same at 9.7-inch with Retina Display and the battery life is pegged at 10 hours.
The fourth generation of iPad also arrives with the new Lightning connector instead of the old 30-pin connector which was found in the third generation.
