Retina Display

This is a much-loved feature of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S and one that tops many wish lists for the iPad 3.

Quad Core Processor

The inner geek in all of us can appreciate the sheer joy of bigger, better processing speeds. However, rumors on this particular front are conflicting. Many sources, including, believe that an iPad 3 with a quad core processor is an almost certainty with other competitors coming on strong in the race for more power.

Other well-followed authorities like 9to5Mac and The Verge are making claims that despite the many rumors, there will not be a quad core processor in the latest iPad release. This one seems to be anyone’s guess. The good news is no one will have to wait much longer before finding out for certain.

Thicker Casing

The final rumor that is gaining more credibility as the arrival date approaches is that the iPad 3 will be thicker than the iPad 2. Many people believe this is the result of a need for space to accommodate the greater battery power that will be needed in order to accommodate the retina display screen. Others speculate that it’s much-needed space to store the more powerful processor.
