    The Origin of the iPad
    Apple workers started toying around with the idea of an iPad as early as 2002. On January 27, 2010, Apple announced the first iPad ever. It was only 0.5 inches thick and weighed 1.5 pounds. The A4 chip provided access to the internet. It costed $499.

    The Timeline of the iPad

  • The iPad 2

    The iPad 2
    Next came the iPad 2 on March 11, 2012. It had a new A5 chip. The original apps installed include Safari, Mail, Messages, Photos, FaceTime, Newsstand, App Store, iTunes, Videos, Maps, Music, Game Center, Photo Booth, Clock, Contacts, Reminders, Calendar, Notes, and Camera. People love that the iPad 2 has a thinner and lighter design, but there has been no screen improvement from the first iPad.
  • The iPad 3/The New iPad

    The iPad 3/The New iPad
    The iPad 3 (Technically called “the new iPad”) was released on March 16th, 2012. It is the first iPad with Retina Display. Compared to the iPad 2, the iPad 3 is heavier yet faster, has a better display, and has a greater definition. People loved it’s superb interface and stunning screen. It has the best app and AV stores. People didn’t like that the camera is still awkward to use and it’s not a huge leap from the iPad 2.

    Unfortunately, this iPad was discontinued only months after it was released.
  • The iPad Mini

    The iPad Mini
    The iPad Mini was released on November 2, 2012. As it’s name suggests, it’s the smallest iPad Apple has created. It has a 7.9 screen size, while the iPad 4, (the iPad with Retina Display) it’s twin, (they were released on the same day) has a 9.7 screen size. People love it’s faster processor, improved FaceTime camera, and it’s UK compatible 4G connectivity. (Don’t ask me what that is)
  • The iPad Mini Continued

    People don’t like the iPad Mini’s reduced battery life and that it came out too soon.
  • Mira's Future iPad Prediction

    Mira's Future iPad Prediction
    In 2050, the iPad will be used for designing t-shirts, learning lessons, doing tasks, and more! This iPad will be called the iPad Banana, and it will come in all funky shapes, sizes, and colors! You design your own case, too. It can have you on it, or an owl, or anything else you can think of!!!!! Some new apps will be “iSchool”, “iFuture”, “iShirt”, “Nature Walk”, “Job Fantastic”, and “iTask”!
  • Mira's Future Prediction Continued

    These will enable you to take classes from home when needed, make “the future” happen (such as building your own robot), design your own t-shirt, learn how to survive in nature, live the job of your dreams, and do any task at all!!!! I can’t wait to see what the iPad will bring!!!!!
  • Caitlyn's Future Prediction

    In 2050, students will be able to stay home while going to school, thanks to the iPad! lt will be able to be hooked onto a moving robot and you can program the robot to walk to all of your classes. There will be a FaceTime update that makes you able to see the classroom and teacher. You can text will your friends during class on an app called “SchoolTexting.” (Shh, don’t tell the teachers!) All of your textbooks will be on iBooks.
  • Caitlyn's Future Prediction (continued)

    Teachers can scan your homework on the iPad and you can print it out using the app “iHomework.” You can stay home in your pajamas during school, and the best part is, no more waking up at 6:00 to catch the school bus!
