The gang over at Chipworks have torn down the iPad 2 and stripped it of its main components. While investigating the innards, they got a close look at the iPad 2's 512MB of RAM and touchscreen controls, which are the same as its last-generation predecessor, and they discovered that the 3G version of the iPad 2 also uses the same chipset as the Verizon iPhone launched last month. But here's what is really fascinating: the dual-core A5 processor under a microscope.
If you didn’t manage to grab an iPad 2 last Friday or successfully get an online order placed in the wee hours of it first being made available, it’s looking increasingly like you’ll have a long wait ahead of you.
When change comes, it can be torrentially fast. In under a year, the iPad went from question mark to astonishing success, selling 15 million units in its first nine months on sale. No wonder the iPad 2’s debut touched off even more bedlam than Apple’s often-frenzied product launches.
Third-party companies are already releasing iPad 2 cases. While we don't have a whole lot available just yet, we'll be updating this gallery with photos of all the latest iPad 2 cases to show you how they fit on your precious new toy.
With every new piece of Apple software comes a slew of firsts, as people look for ever more creative ways to use what Cupertino has bestowed upon us, and the release of the iPad 2 is no exception. Now, from Anna Elizabeth James and Majek Pictures comes word of the release of Goldilocks Episode 9, possibly the first all-iOS film created using entirely iOS devices, and Apple-produced software.
Wake up, sleepy heads. Did your alarm clocks go off at the right time? Did it make a difference if you updated to iOS 4.3? Did those of you with older iOS versions have any trouble with your clocks? Remember 6 months ago when all that was a very big deal? Here's to hoping Apple didn't miss anything, and just in case you did, we've got it all right here.
It was almost to be expected, right? The original iPad launch saw inventory run out rather quickly, and online order shipping times didn't exactly come down until last summer as Apple upped the pace to replenish supplies. It appears that the iPad 2's launch this weekend is going the way of its predecessor, as the only model left at Apple's Fifth Ave store today was the $829 Verizon 3G model.
We're well underway into iPad 2 launch weekend, and already there's been a plethora of reports of the device selling out at Apple retail stores. Current ship times on models on Apple's site range anywhere from 2-3 weeks or even 3-4 weeks. However, it appears those who opted against venturing out into the masses and instead ordered from directly from AT&T could have their iPad 2 by Monday!
