Apple to Release Tweaked iPad 3 With Lightning Connector And Global 4G LTE Support At iPad Mini Event

Tweaked iPad 3

There have been several rumors that have claimed that Apple will also unveil a tweaked version of the larger iPad along with the iPad mini at a media event on October 23.

9to5Mac reports that according to their sources, Apple will indeed announce a tweaked version of the full-sized iPad at next week’s media event.

From 9to5Mac:

These people say that the new version of the iPad will retain the same $499, $599, and $699 WiFi-only price points, and the LTE line will retain the current $629, $729, and $829 pricing. With no price changes or additional storage capacities, we believe that the storage options of 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB will also be retained.

Launching roughly half a year after the current third-generation iPad, this new iPad is said to be a tweaked model and not a complete revamp.

According to the rumors, the tweaked iPad will come with Apple’s new Lightning connector and come with global LTE support like the iPhone 5.

Some rumors have also suggested that it may come with an updated heat dissipation mechanism to address the heating issue that has been reported by some users and a completely new Retina display based on IGZO technology.

As an iPad 3 owner, would you be annoyed if Apple releases a tweaked iPad?
