Latest iPad 3 Rumor Tips ‘A5X’ Chipset

February 23, 2012 Leave a comment

The rumors about iPad are in full vigor, and the latest news is on a chipset known as the A5X.

As reported by MacRumors, the forum for Chinese website WeiPhone includes a post with a image of the next-gen iPad’s logic board. The system-on-a-chip is labeled “A5X” and seems to have been produced in November 2011.

Apple watchers were under the thought that the chip in the company’s next iPad would be named the A6, because the first iPad had the name A4 and iPad 2 had the A5.

Earlier this year, 9to5Mac reported that the iPad 3 would  consist of a quad-core ship since Apple’s iOS 5.1 beta code included references to core management capabilities for quad-core processors.

It will be confusing when we think whose points are right. In such cases, it is best to take leaked photos and other Apple rumors not by word for word until Cupertino actually launches its products.  Apple is rumored to be holding its press event for the next iPad during the first week in March in San Francisco, so stay tuned.

We’ve certainly not been at a loss for iPad rumors lately – from retina displays and better cameras to a smaller, 8-inch model and 4G LTE capabilities. What do you hope to see? Let us know in the comments. Until then, see what PCMag’s Editor-in-Chief Dan Costa does not want in the iPad 3.

The ‘Real’ iPad 3 Not Coming Until Late 2012

November 10, 2011 Leave a comment

The ‘real’ iPad 3 will be launched late in 2012 at the earliest.

Apple’s  announcement of iPhone 4S in October of this year, made many disappoint. Most them felt that the phone was just a follow-on to its previous baby brother iPhone 4, carries its resemblance much and not wholly a new device. Apple has done this before, with the iPhone 3G and the iPhone 3GS, and it has become the trend of releasing an updated version of previous device is spreading to other Apple products.

A report in Digitimes says that, while Apple’s newest iPad will hit the market in March of next year, it will not be the ‘real’ iPad 3. But, the iPad that was seen in 2012 will be an updated iPad 2. The website also cites supply chain sources that say the ‘real’ iPad 3 will not be unveiled until the third quarter of 2012, at the earliest. It will not be surprising at all, if this turns out to be true, after all, it wouldn’t be the first time Apple has put off a full upgrade in favor of minor upgrades to last year’s model. Add to that the fact that the iPad 2 was already a pretty major upgrade from the iPad 1, including a whole new design, and it seems pretty likely. According to the Digitimes report, the iPad 2 upgrade will have a longer battery life and a slightly slimmer design.
