Apple unveiled the brand new iPad at a special event held at San Francisco on 7th March, 2012. Interestingly or rather surprisingly, Apple introduced the slate as the new iPad and not as iPad 3 or iPad HD. Though there are references to the third generation iPad on the official website, we are still in a confusion to call it so. Apple in the recent times is giving a face-lift to the previous innovations rather than introducing an revolutionary product. For instance, the introduction of iPhone 4S in place of iPhone 5 as successor. Similarly, Apple launched the Apple new iPad in place of Apple iPad 3. For whatever the reason, the true innovation is mislaid with Apple in the recent times.
