In late March, 2012, we gave the iPad 3 a score of 9. That’s close to perfect and the fourth generation iPad edges closer, but it’s not there yet. Apple has upgraded the processor in the iPad 4 to the A6X, offering up to twice the processing power found in the previous model. Combined with upgrades to the front-facing camera and promises of faster WiFi connections, these are welcome improvements. They don’t however address the issue of heft, which one could assume is a difficult engineering feat. The fourth generation iPad (2012) continues its march towards perfection and still reigns supreme as the absolute best tablet available today.
