    After looking at the differences between the 3rd and 4th gen, that 6 month release cycle made sense. The 3rd gen model only worked on three sets of carriers for LTE vs the 4th gen with multiple (add in the international LTE radio like with the iPhone 5). It also had a new processor and updated specs (cameras, lightning port, etc) to go along with it.

    Unless they have an entirely new processor and better spec set, having a 5th gen only 6 months after the 4th gen doesn't make much sense.

    What are you guy talking about a 6 month cycle for? The iPad 4 was a minor spec incress it was not a new version. This will be 12 months since the last ipad generation. Ipad 3 and 4 are the same generation.

    That's a false statement. They have different 'generation names' in all printed materials. The next one will indeed be called '5th gen'. That's irrefutable.

    How dare apple not make us wait 12 months to have new technology. I mean what kind of POS company would update there products when the technology is current rather than waiting for it to be 6 months old??

    I am appalled of the mere thought of the ability to purchase a new iPad before the last one is 1 year old. Lmao

    People are so silly. "I just got mine are you kidding" as if everyone buys an iPad each year.

    Let's assume you are on a 1 a year budget. I know I am. I usually sell off the old to buy the new. There are two advantages to a 6 month refresh.

    1. Your product is that much newer when you want to sell it and people like that.

    2. If your on a 1. Year budget then instead of updating to something is 2x faster you'll be updating to something 4x faster (ussually with each release apple makes the newer product twice as fast)

    If your like me then you'll probably sell your iPad to get a new one anyway. So the upgrade coat is minimal

    Besides I'm all about he iPad mini anyway. Love the size and weight

    No, they call it the 2012, 2013 Ford F150, etc.

    Yes, but it is still an F-150. So call it the 2013 iPad.

    I said that exact thing several months ago about the iPhone when everybody was arguing about its new name! Unfortunately, the iPad 3 & 4 were in the same production year so that won't work....

    Yeah it's really stupid they stopped using the generation numbers after iPad 2. I will always refer to them as their gen numbers. I think Apple didn't like the idea of gen numbers for the iPad being out of synch with the iPhones. Still it's the iPad 4 not "The iPad"....
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

    it makes perfect sense since they're lagging behind the competition. apple can no longer offer minimal upgrades once every 12 months.

    Following this logic, a two-year cycle should make more money. Releasing updates faster certainly doesn't do a thing to existing models. People who whine about this buy iDevices for the bling factor, not to use them.

    Pads are rectangles of absorbent material that you stick to the inside of your underwear. Some have extra material on the sides (called "wings") that fold over the edges of your underwear to better hold the pad in place and prevent leakage. Sometimes, pads are called sanitary pads or sanitary napkins. Nothing like a pad that can also play music!
