iPad 4 Stories March 18, 2014

Earlier today, we predicted that Apple had plans to bring the previously-released fourth-generation iPad back into production to replace the aging iPad 2. As expected, the fourth-gen iPad is now available once again on Apple’s website, this time with only a 16 GB capacity.

Aside from offering the single capacity choice, there aren’t any changes to the device. This model replaces the iPad 2, which has been around since the days of the 30-pin connector. The newer version includes Apple’s custom dual-core A6X processor, a 5 MP iSight camera, and 1.2 MP FaceTime camera. (Press release below:)

Apple cuts refurbished iPad prices: mini starts at $249, 4th-gen cheaper than a new iPad 2 (Update: iPods too!)

From 9to5Toys.com: Update: Refurbished iPods are getting some price drop loving as well! Apple has knocked $30 of the price of iPod Touch 32Gb 5th generation models. They are now available for $219 with free shipping or in-store pickup. That’s $10 less than a new 16GB iPod Touch, which doesn’t even have a rear camera.

In light of today’s product announcements, Apple has slashed the prices of iPads in its refurbished online store. The first-generation iPad mini now starts at just $249, a drop of $30 from the previous refurbished price, and $50 below the new retail price. All other configurations received either the same $30 price drop or a $20 dip. If I were in the market for an iPad mini today and wasn’t willing to pay the Retina premium, I would most certainly opt for the Apple refurbished mini and save $50.

Also, the refurbished full-size iPad 4th-generation with Retina Display is now priced at $379. That’s $20 below the current retail price for an iPad 2 and includes a Retina Display, Lightning connector, and souped-up specs. It is without a doubt a better purchase than the nearly three year old iPad 2. Models with WiFi + 4G connectivity received at least a $40 price drop as well.

Apple refurbished devices are generally regarded as “good-as-new” by past purchasers and come with the same 1-year warranty as their new counterparts.

Only a few weeks after comparing iPhone 5s components to the iPhone 5, TLDToday is back at it again, tearing down an iPad 4 to compare its components to that of the upcoming iPad 5. The results are rather interesting, and show just how dramatic of a redesign the iPad 5 will be.

Skype for iPad & iPhone updated with HD video calls, improved call quality

Update: The iPhone version of Skype just received the same update with HD video calling support on iPhone 5.

Today Skype updated its iPad app with the ability to make HD quality video calls in addition to several other performance improvements. It’s a feature that’s been available on other platforms for quite sometime, including the Mac client, but today the higher quality video calls finally make their way to the latest iPad. Earlier this year Skype rolled out HD video calling to Windows Phone device’s and noted it would include “720P HD on higher-end devices.” We’d imagine that’s also the case with today’s iPad update but, as always, the quality of video will also depend on the quality and bandwidth of your internet connection.

The HD video calling feature is only available on iPad 4, and version 4.10 also brings enhancements to call quality and stability. It also includes “a redesigned country code picker on the dial pad.”

What’s New in Version 4.10

Call quality improvements – Make HD quality video calls from your iPad 4. – General improvements to call quality and stability.

General fixes and improvements – A redesigned country code picker on the dial pad.
