Right from the start, there’s a lot to love about iPad. It’s simple yet powerful.Thin and light yet full-featured. It can do just about everything and be just about anything. And because it’s so easy to use, it’s easy to love.
The most important feature on any iPad is the screen. So that’s where we started — by building the breakthrough Retina display with over 3 million pixels. To create a display like this was an engineering feat in its own right. But we went even further. We designed a camera that could take images as brilliant as the display itself. And we enclosed iPad in a unibody so thin and light, you can take all those pixels with you wherever you go. And they travel beautifully.
In order to create a display with a 2048-by-1536-pixel resolution, we had to design it in a completely new way. Every pixel in a display has multiple signals telling it when to light up. But when you have a lot of pixels and a lot of signals on the same plane, signals get crossed and image quality suffers. To make sure everything on iPad looks crystal clear, Apple engineers elevated the pixels onto a different plane — separating them from the signals. It’s technology that’s breakthrough. Just like iPad itself.
iPad is sleek, beautiful, and engineered to handle life on the go — thanks in large part to the aluminum unibody. By consolidating many parts into one, everything becomes less complex and far more precise. The result is an iPad that’s thin, light, and durable enough for the ins and outs of everyday life.
