Apple replaces iPad 2 with iPad with Retina display

Lowest-end iPad features better screen, chip and camera than iPad 2 for same
price

Apple has upgraded its cheapest iPad to a fourth-generation model from the
iPad 2, which it is retiring. And it is selling iPad with Retina display for
the same price.

iPad with Retina display is the fourth-generation iPad, identical to those
released late in 2012, and one generation “behind” the higher-end iPad Air
released in 2013. It runs on an A6X chip, rather than the faster A7 of
current generation iPads.

The iPad 2, which Apple will no longer sell, was released in 2011.

The iPad with Retina display comes with 16 GB of storage and with Wi-Fi only
model will cost $399 – the same price as the second-generation model it
replaces. The Wi-Fi and cellular-compatible version is $529.

Compared to the iPad 2, the iPad with Retina display has a sharper screen,
faster chip, and a better camera that shoots in full 1080p HD video, rather
than
the 720p on the iPad 2, “offering a dramatic upgrade in power performance
and value compared to the iPad 2 it replaces,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s
senior vice-president of worldwide marketing, in a statement.

Apple’s current generation iPad models, the iPad Air and the iPad mini with
Retina display, were released last October. At that time, the company did
not
drop the price of the iPad 2. The iPad air and the iPad mini with Retina
display start at $519 and $419 respectively for the 16GB, Wi-Fi only models.
