New Apple iPad2 Features and Design






















Superfast graphics.
Go, gamers, go.

With up to nine times the graphics performance, gameplay on iPad is even smoother and more realistic. And faster graphics help apps perform better — especially those with video. You’ll see it when you’re scrolling through your photo library, editing video with iMovie, and viewing animations in Keynote.













Battery life keeps on going. So you can, too.

Even with the new thinner and lighter design, iPad has the same amazing 10-hour battery life.1 That’s enough juice for one flight across the ocean, or one movie-watching all-nighter, or a week’s commute across town. The power-efficient A5 chip and iOS keep battery life from fading away, so you can get carried away.



Thinner, lighter, and full of great ideas.

Once you pick up iPad 2, it’ll be hard to put down. That’s the idea behind the all-new design. It’s 33 percent thinner and up to 15 percent lighter, so it feels even more comfortable in your hands.2 And it makes surfing the web, checking email, watching movies, and reading books so natural, you might forget there’s incredible technology under your fingers.

Dual-core A5 chip.It’s fast, times two.

Two powerful cores in one A5 chip mean iPad can do twice the work at once. You’ll notice the difference when you’re surfing the web, watching movies, making FaceTime video calls, gaming, and going from app to app to app. Multitasking is smoother, apps load faster, and everything just works better.

LED-backlit display.The view is amazing.


iPad is one big, beautiful display — 9.7 inches of high-resolution photos, movies, web pages, books, and more. LED backlighting makes everything you see remarkably crisp, vivid, and bright. Even in places with low light, like an airplane. And there’s no wrong way to hold iPad. It’s designed to show off everything in portrait and landscape, so with every turn (even upside down), the display adjusts to fit. Because it uses a display technology called IPS (in-plane switching), it has a wide, 178° viewing angle. Hold it up to someone across the room, or share it with someone sitting next to you, and everyone gets a brilliant view.






Instant On.
The fun starts fast.

Pick up your iPad, press the Home button, and it wakes from sleep instantly. That’s because iPad features fast, efficient, and reliable flash storage that lets you access data quickly. So everything effortlessly springs to life.

Wi-Fi and 3G.
Two great ways to stay connected.

Every iPad is built with advanced 802.11n wireless technology. It automatically finds Wi-Fi networks, which you can join with a few taps. iPad is also available with 3G connectivity on either AT&T or Verizon Wireless networks. So if you’re somewhere without Wi-Fi, such as outdoors on a camping trip or on the road, you can still surf the web, check email, or get directions.6

Gyro, accelerometer, and compass.
iPad knows your every move.


With the built-in accelerometer, you can rotate iPad to portrait or landscape, or even upside down, and whatever you’re watching, reading, or seeing adjusts to fit the display. And now the accelerometer, three-axis gyroscope, and compass all work together. They sense which direction iPad is heading and
 how it’s moving. So games, maps, and other apps know
 your every twist, turn, tilt, and 360. It’s an epic 
win for gaming. And it’s just the beginning of better-than-ever iPad apps.















OS 4.
The world’s most advanced mobile operating system.

iOS 4 is the operating system for iPad (along with iPhone and iPod touch). It lets you browse, read, and see everything just by touching the screen. It includes all the powerful, innovative, and fun built-in apps you use every day, many times a day. And it’s the platform on which more than 65,000 other amazing apps have been created for iPad. It’s highly secure, stable, and responsive, and it’s made to work seamlessly with the iPad hardware. iOS 4 is the reason no other device has yet come close to iPad.

Multi-Touch.
Everything’s at your fingertips.

Technology is at its best when it feels completely natural, 
almost like there’s no technology at all. That’s Multi-Touch on iPad. 
You use your fingers to do everything, so everything you do — surfing the web, 
typing email, reading books, and swiping through photos — is easier and a lot more fun. 
How does it work? When your fingers touch the display, it senses them using electrical fields. 
Then it instantly transforms your taps, swipes, pinches, and flicks into lifelike actions. Just like that.

Video mirroring.
What you do is what they see.

Video mirroring is new for iPad and for every app, web page, presentation, video, movie, or photo you want to show a big audience. Just plug in the Apple Digital AV Adapter or Apple VGA Adapter (sold separately) and your HDTV or projector becomes a bigger version of your iPad. One plug, that’s it. Everyone sees what’s on your display — even when you rotate iPad from portrait to landscape or zoom in and out on photos.

AirPlay.
Your movie-photo-music stream.

All the great stuff on your iPad — your music, photos, and video — can now stream wirelessly to your HDTV and speakers via AirPlay-enabled speakers or Apple TV on a Wi-Fi network.7 With just a tap on the AirPlay icon, blast some tunes, have a movie night, show off some photos, or watch YouTube. And go big.

AirPrint Wireless printing right from your iPad
Late for a movie date? Quickly print your tickets from your iPad. Putting the finishing touches on a Keynote presentation? Print a draft and give it to a colleague. Or maybe you’re running out the door to catch a flight. A few taps is all it takes to help you get onboard.*















Printing on tap.

AirPrint on iPad makes it simple to print your email, photos, web pages, and documents. There’s no software to download, no drivers to install, and no cables to connect. With just a few taps on your iPad, you can go from viewing something on the screen to holding a printed copy. And because all the printing takes place in the background, there’s no waiting around. Instead, you can start printing and go right back to flicking through photos, surfing the web, or doing whatever you were doing before.

True wireless printing.

“No cables” means exactly that. AirPrint printing is 100 percent wireless. iPad automatically locates and connects to AirPrint-enabled printers on your Wi-Fi network. So whether you’re on the other side of the room or the other side of the house, you can print what you need, when you need it. In fact, it’s all so easy and fast that by the time you finish reading this sentence, you could have printed it from your iPad.














                                Works with AirPrint-enabled printers.

AirPrint works seamlessly with a new generation of wireless printers from HP.

Two cameras. And a big hello to FaceTime for iPad.

You’ll see two cameras on iPad — one on the front and one on the back. They may be tiny, but they’re a big deal. They’re designed for FaceTime video calling, and they work together so you can talk to your favorite people and see them smile and laugh back at you.3 The front camera puts you and your friend face-to-face. Switch to the back camera during your video call to share where you are, who you’re with, or what’s going on around you. When you’re not using FaceTime, let the back camera roll if you see something movie-worthy. It’s HD, so whatever you shoot is a mini-masterpiece. And you can take wacky snapshots in Photo Booth. It’s the most fun a face can have.

iPad Smart Cover. Designed for iPad. And vice versa.

iPad 2 and the iPad Smart Cover are made for each other. Literally.4 
We designed the iPad Smart Cover to work side-by-side with
 iPad — and on top and underneath it, too. Smart magnetic technology
 built into each really pulls them together. The iPad Smart Cover falls
 perfectly into place and stays put to protect your iPad screen, 
yet doesn’t add bulk to its thin, light design. Open the Smart 
Cover and your iPad wakes up instantly. Close it and your 
iPad goes to sleep automatically. And here’s another smart part:
 It transforms into the perfect movie-watching, game-playing, web-surfing stand.
 It comes in 10 bright colors — including five in rich, aniline-dyed 
Italian leather.5 Choose your favorite, and your iPad will be smart all around.

An on-again, off-again relationshi

The Smart Cover makes iPad do things no other cover can. Close it, and
iPad automatically goes to sleep. Open it, and iPad instantly wakes up —
no need to press any buttons. The Smart Cover doesn’t just protect iPad,
 it keeps it ready to go whenever you are.


Great looks. And even better moves.

See the iPad Smart Cover in action
iPad 2 is thin, sleek, and flat-out amazing. So why hide it in a bulky case? The slim yet sturdy Smart Cover protects your iPad screen without covering up its durable aluminum back.1 So your iPad still looks and feels like an iPad — just with a little extra protection. Even better, the Smart Cover doubles as the perfect movie-watching, game-playing, web-surfing, do-it-all companion. It folds in all the right places so you can quickly create a stand that holds iPad upright. Or one that lets you tilt iPad into a comfortable typing position. If you prefer to hold iPad, the Smart Cover flips back and out of the way like a page in a magazine. And if you want to shoot some HD video on the fly, the Smart Cover folds in half to expose the back-facing camera. Now that’s something to smile about.
