The new iPad gets 10 hours of battery life


Good news for all of you worrywarts! The new iPad will remain at the 10 hour mark in terms of battery life! We will still get 10 hours of battery even though we have 4x the pixels (3.1 million to be exact), a better camera, and a faster chip.

Phil Schiller:

The new iPad delivers the same 10 hours of battery life, and 4G is 9 hours.

The downside is that we’re only getting 9 hours if we’re on 4G LTE. DO YOU HEAR THAT?! Nine whole hours on 4G, and that is a “downside.” Pretty great. Clearly Apple has gotten the best LTE chips ever made. This is going to be a big step forward for the industry.
