There's More to it. And even less of it.
Two cameras for FaceTime and HD
video recording. The dual-core A5 chip. The same 10-hour battery life.1
All in a thinner, lighter design. Now iPad is even more amazing. And even less
like anything else.
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.
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.
Two cameras. And a big hello to FaceTime for
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.
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.
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.
iOS 4.The world's most advanced mobile
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
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.
Gyro, accelerometer, and compass.iPad knows your
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.
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.
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.
AirPrint. Print everything wirelessly.
Print your email, photos, web pages, and
documents right from your iPad over Wi-Fi.8 There's no software to
download, no drivers to install, and no cables to connect. With just a few taps,
you can go from viewing something on the iPad screen to holding a printed copy.

- Testing conducted by Apple in February 2011
using preproduction iPad 2 units and software. Testing consisted of full
battery discharge while performing each of the following tasks: video
playback, audio playback, and Internet browsing using Wi-Fi or 3G. Video
content was a repeated 2-hour 23-minute movie purchased from the iTunes
Store. Audio content was a playlist of 358 unique songs, consisting of a
combination of songs imported from CDs using iTunes (128-Kbps AAC encoding)
and songs purchased from the iTunes Store (256-Kbps AAC encoding). Internet
over Wi-Fi and 3G tests were conducted using dedicated web and mail servers,
browsing snapshot versions of 20 popular web pages, and receiving mail once
an hour. All settings were default except: Wi-Fi was associated with a
network (except for Internet browsing over 3G); the Wi-Fi feature Ask to
Join Networks and Auto-Brightness were turned off. Battery life depends on
device settings, usage, and many other factors. Battery tests are conducted
using specific iPad 2 units; actual results may vary.
