Multiple sources claim ‘March 7’ as iPad 3 launch date
Multiple source have claimed that March 7 will be the date on which Apple unveils its new iPad 3 device
Multiple sources have claimed that March 7 will be the date that Apple officially unveils the iPad 3.
Apple will unveil the iPad 3 on March 7, according to iMore. Where iMore got its information from we do not know – its source remains nameless – but adding weight to its prediction is Loop Insight’s Jim Dalrymple who has also specified March 7 as the launch date.
There is, however, still some debate as to whether or not Apple’s new A6 processor will be quad-core or not with some reports claiming that it will be a dual core set-up based on ARM’s new Cortex A15 architecture.
We’ve also heard mumblings of a significantly improved GPU unit aboard the device, although whether it will be 20 times faster or not, as some reports have claimed, remains to be seen. Nonetheless we’re remaining quietly hopeful.
The iPad 3 is also said to be 1mm thicker than the iPad 2 on account of its new Retina Display, which requires a thicker IPS panel.
Both Loop Insight and iMore have solid track records when it comes to things like this, which means invites to the event could be appearing in the post any time soon.
