Feature: Getting to know the iPad 4 Getting to know theiPad 4 Everything you need to know about Apple’s amazing new iPad By Jason Snell & Serenity Caldwell, Lex Friedman S ay ‘hello’ to the brand new iPad 4, the latest and greatest addition to Apple’s revolutionary portable device. If you’ve never owned an iPad before, this feature tells you everything you need to know about this stunning piece of kit. If you’re an iPad aficionado, we’ve got in-depth information on all the new specifications, features and functions that the device now offers. Unlike the iPad 3 (which Apple referred to a ‘new iPad) this new model has a definite name and number. It’s also a very different device inside, although it seems quite similar to earlier models. The screen contains over The iPad 4 display measures 9.7-inches (diagonal), bigger than the 7.9-inches of 3.1 million pixels the iPad mini. It also doubles the number of pixels in play; that means the screen contains a whopping 2048-by-1536 pixels (264 pixels per inch) for a total of over 3.1 million pixels. Apple coins this Retina Display. It describes a screen with pixel density so high that, at normal viewing distances, the average human eye can’t discern the individual pixels. To run such a high density display, the iPad 4 is powered by the new A6X chip, which is a dual-core chip with quad-core graphics. The iPad 4 is blistering fast, especially at 3D graphics and gaming. There’s little doubt that the new iPad is the best tablet device on the market, which is why it’s also the most popular. So come with us as we look at all the new features of this incredible device.6 The Complete Guide to the iPad 4

Feature: Getting to know the iPad 4Get to know your gesturesDiscover how to interact with the iPad 4 with these finger gestures A lthough Apple has designed the iPad 4 (and the iPhone, iPod touch) to be simple to learn, sometimes you may want a primer on the basics. Here’s a detailed breakdown of all the major Multi-Touch gestures, navigation options, Home screen tips and tricks and multitasking features you’ll need to master your iOS device. Gestures and techniques If you’ve never before owned a Multi-Touch device from Apple, you may be unfamiliar with crazy phrases like ‘pinch-to-zoom’ and the difference between flick and swipe. Have no fear: While some of these gestures may have odd names, they’re easy enough to pick up.

  • 11. Get to know the Home screenDiscover how to navigate and customise your iPad’s main screen N ow that you’ve taken your first step into the iOS world with Multi-Touch gestures, it’s time to learn how to navigate your iPad 4. We’ll go over where your apps are stored, how to organise them, search for them and delete them. The Home screen When you first turn on your device, you’re brought to the Home screen. Here, you’ll see an assortment of icons grouped into rows, and several more icons grouped in the silver Dock along the bottom of the screen. The Home screen is where your apps live, and where you can launch them. The Dock. The grey translucent bar along the bottom of your Home screen is called the Dock. If you’ve tried swiping between app pages, you’ll notice the icons in the Dock don’t change from one app page to the next; this is because the Dock is for the most frequently used apps (up to six apps). Search in Spotlight Swipe right on your Home screen until you reach Spotlight. Edit apps Tap and hold on an app icon to enter (If you’re on the first Home screen page, pressing your Edit mode to be able to rearrange your apps, add Home button also summons the Spotlight screen.) To them to folders and delete them from your device search, just type your query in the text box at the top. Open and close an app. To open an app, all you have to do is tap its icon. Once it’s open, you can return to the Home screen at any time by pressing the Home button. Rearrange and delete apps. To rearrange the order of your icons, tap and hold any icon on the Home screen. After a few seconds, all your app icons, including the one you’re holding, will start to wiggle, and a small black X will pop up in each icon’s top-left corner. Once they do this, you can rearrange any apps on the Home screen, or even drag them into or out of the Dock. If you’ve installed a third-party app you don’t want any more, you can tap the X to delete it (you can’t delete the apps that came pre-installed on your device). When you’re finished, press the Home button, and your icons will stop wiggling and stay in their new location. Use folders. A folder is a group of apps, represented by a single icon, on your Home screen. To create a folder, start by tapping and holding any app icon to enter Edit mode; after the icons begin to wiggle, drag an app on top of another app. When you release the app, you’ll create a folder, which will open and display both apps. The multitasking bar.

  • 12. Feature: Getting to know the iPad 4Inside the iPad 4Discover the wealth of new technology found in the iPad 4 M any of the questions people and pundits have spent the past few months obsessing over have been answered – but not all. We know it has a nicer screen, a faster processor, better cameras, 4G networking, and voice dictation. Here’s a quick primer to all the new features and technology found in the new iPad… Retina display. Like the iPhone, the iPad 4 has a Retina display – a term Apple uses to describe a screen with a high- enough pixel density that you can’t discern individual pixels at normal viewing distances. The Retina display for the iPad boasts a resolution of 2048-by-1536 pixels – that’s over 3.1 million pixels in total – at the same 9.7-inch (diagonal) screen size as before. New cameras. The new iPad’s front camera – the one facing you as you use the tablet – has been improved (from 0.3 MP to 1.2 MP), and it now does FaceTime in HD resolution. The back camera still sports a 5-megapixel (2592-by-1936 pixels) iSight Retina display The new screen has an incrediblyThe iPad 4 has had a camera, much like the one in high pixel density for super sharp visualssignificant power bump the iPhone 4. Apple says the camera offers improved sharpness, and it supports auto- exposure, auto-focus, auto-face-detection, auto-exposure lock, auto-focus lock, and (for low-light images) temporal noise reduction. It can record 1080p video, and it uses the iPad’s improved processing horsepower to provide image stabilization. RAM upgrade. Apple’s tech specs webpage doesn’t include information about the amount of RAM in the new iPad, although our friends over at iFixit (www.ifixit.com) have torn the device apart and discovered that it has 1GB, compared to just 512MB in the iPad 2. The A6X processor. The iPhone 5 has the A6, and the iPad 3 has the older A5X. But the new iPad gets a significant bump in power thanks to an new, dual-core A6X processor, which contains a quad-core graphics processing unit (GPU). In addition, that improved graphics capability lets app developers increase the level of detail in their apps – and take advantage of the new Retina display. Faster innards An all-new A6X processor upgrade ensure that there’s enough power inside to keep 4G LTE wireless. Like its predecessors, the new iPad is things running smoothly available in versions with just Wi-Fi and versions with both Wi-Fi and cellular networking capabilities.

The iPad 4 also has support for thenew DC-HSDPA 3G networks, which is the latest generationof 3G networking. DC-HSDPA combines two 3G bands intoone, offering double the speed of internet connection (upto 42Mbps, theoretically. We’ve had up to 16Mbps on it,although 8Mbps is a more reasonable average). Supportfor 4G requires a whole new contract, and DC-HSDPA isdependent upon your location and network provider. Butthe iPad 4 can still rely on two widely available 3G wirelesstechnologies: HSDPA, and HSPA+.Bluetooth 4.0. Like the iPhone 5, the iPad 4 includesBluetooth 4.0, the latest version of the Bluetooth standard.Bluetooth 4.0 includes all the features of Bluetooth2.1+EDR (the version used in the iPad 2), so existingBluetooth accessories should work fine. But version 4.0 addsa new protocol called Bluetooth low energy, which allows Faster internet Even if you can’t get onto a 4Gfor devices that require much less power to operate and network, you’ll still find the iPad has a muchconnect. (The folks behind this technology call Bluetooth faster connection to the mobile net4.0-capable devices Smart Ready.) Examples of devices thatmight take advantage of Bluetooth low energy are exerciseand medical devices such as heart-rate and blood-sugarmonitors. Bluetooth 4.0 might also be a boon for artists whowant to use pressure-sensitive styluses.Battery life. The iPad 2 claimed 10 hours of battery life forWi-Fi surfing, movie watching, and music listening, or 9hours of 3G surfing. Despite having a screen and wirelessconnectivity that use more power, and a more-powerfulprocessor, the iPad 4 has identical battery life.Say hi to Siri?

  • 14. Feature: Getting to know the iPad 4Get to know MessagesDiscover how to send instant messages to your friends O ne amazing feature on iPad is that you can use it to send and receive text messages (even on the Wi-Fi version). This is thanks to Messages, an application that lets you exchange text-only SMS (Short Message Service) messages and photos and video MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) messages with other iOS devices. To start a message, tap the Messages app on the Home screen, and then tap the new message icon (a box with a pencil). You can enter a recipient’s mobile number, type a contact’s name (which, as with Mail, brings up a list of contacts that match; choose one by tapping it) or tap the + sign to choose an existing contact from your Contacts list. Make sure you choose the contact’s mobile number, or your message won’t go anywhere. You can send messages to multiple contacts, but they count as multiple messages, so if you’re paying per text iMessage is a new message, keep that in mind. Use the on-screen keyboard to type a text message, then tap Send. communication iMessage is Apple’s all-in-one replacement for text, group, and MMS messaging – sort of. If you’re familiar with BlackBerry Messaging, it’s Apple’s answer to that approach. platform for iOS In short, it’s a new, easy-to-use communication platform limited to iOS devices. Unlike regular SMS text messaging, iMessage supports niceties like delivery receipts (to know when your message has been delivered), read receipts (to know when your message has been read) and live typing status (so you can know that your buddy is replying). Note, however, that by default, your iOS device won’t tell your contact when you’ve read his/her message; you must enable that manually. Be careful though: on the iPad you can only send messages to other people using iOS devices (the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch).

  • 15. Get to know MailDiscover how to send and receive emails on the iPad A s it did with Safari, Apple slimmed down its Mail program for iOS. Mail’s fast and powerful features make up for the device’s lack of a physical keyboard. In this section, you’ll get to know its best features. Set up new accounts When you first set up your device, iTunes will ask if you want to transfer your existing email accounts from your computer. On a Mac, you can transfer accounts from Apple Mail. On a Windows PC, you can transfer account details from Windows Mail, Microsoft Outlook Express or Outlook. If you use a different email program, you’ll have to enter your account information manually. On the Home screen, tap the Settings button and then select Mail, Contacts, Calendars. Under the Accounts header, tap Add Account. You’ll see a screen with buttons for Microsoft Exchange, iCloud, Gmail, Yahoo Mail, AOL and Other. Work with email Every time you view your Inbox – either by tapping it from the Mailboxes screen or by returning to it from another app New account The iPad simplifies adding an email – your device will check that account for new mail. You’ll see account from these services. Tap Other to add a preview of each message, including the sender, the time it an account from a different service provider was sent, the subject line and, if desired, a few lines of text. Unread messages display a blue dot to the left. Mail you’ve replied to or forwarded to another address will have small indicator arrows to the left of it. Delete messages You can delete a message, which moves it to the Trash folder, in one of several ways. If you have the email open, simply tap the Trashcan icon at the bottom of the screen. The email message will be sucked into the Trash and the next message will appear. If you’re in the list view, on the other hand, you have two options for deleting messages without opening them. The quickest way is to simply swipe your fingertip across the message and tap the Delete button. The second way is to tap the Edit button at the top of the screen, tap unwanted messages, and then tap the Delete button. Send email You can send an email message in one of several ways. The easiest is to reply to an existing message by tapping the left-arrow icon at the bottom of the viewing screen. To send Inside the Inbox Simply tap the circular arrow a new message to the sender of an existing message, tap to check manually for new mail. Slide your the person’s name in the From field and then tap Email in finger across a message’s preview to remove it the resulting screen.

  • 16. Feature: Getting to know the iPad 4Get to know SiriIntroducing Apple’s new control method… your voice N ew to the iPad is Siri, Apple’s virtual voice assistant. Getting started with Siri couldn’t be easier, simply hold down the Home button to activate Siri, and start speaking. The iPad will start transcribing your voice into words. You’ll be surprised at just how good Siri is if you haven’t used Voice Control recently. It’s light years ahead of how it used to be a few years ago. Although it still gets lost and makes mistakes, Siri is great fun to use. Siri can be used to create messages, switch apps, create calendar events, create and reply to emails, and you can also dictate notes and documents. You can also ask Siri questions about just about anything, it’ll search online using Wolfram Alpha or do web searches for you. Some things to try out Some commonly used dictation instructions that the iPad can handle include: • Maps: “direct me home” or “show me Paris.” • Local info: “find a petrol station near me”, “what’s the best restaurant nearby?” Siri control Access Siri by holding down the • Stocks: “what is Google’s stock price?” Home button on the iPad 4 • Social media: “send a tweet.” • Safari: “search for BBC News”, “look for images of cats in hats”, “search for Macworld in Bing.” • Weather: “what’s the weather like this weekend?”, “what’s the weather like in Boston?” • Apps: “play angry birds”, “open the notes app.” • Email and messages: “send an email to Jane”, “send a message to John that says ‘hi, want to meet up tonight’”, “FaceTime with Steve.” • Sports: “when is the next Tottenham Hotspur match?” • Time: “what’s the time in Tokyo?”, “set an alarm for 7 o’clock tomorrow”, “timer four minutes”, “turn all alarms off.” • Contacts: “show me John Doe”, “Al Smith is my dad.” • Calendar: “meet with Jane at two o’clock tomorrow”, “move the two o’clock meeting to three o’clock”, “cancel all my meetings today.” • General knowledge: “what’s 22 x 33?”, “what’s the capital of Australia?”, “how many people live in Japan?” Siri is a fantastic way to interact with your iPad, even Your questions, answered Siri is pretty good at though it sometimes miss-hears what you say. The great answering questions, as well as performing basic thing about Siri is it learns from what you say, and the tasks on your iPad 4. options you choose.

  • 17. Getting started withthe keyboardTips and tricks that make using the iPad keyboard easier F or many, the biggest challenge of the iPad (aside from resisting buying one) is getting accustomed to using the virtual keyboard. But there’s nothing to worry about, it really couldn’t be any easier. Whether you’re coming from a full-size computer keyboard or a thumb-based smartphone, here are some ways to tap into the iPad’s typing features. Catch and release The iPad differs from most other keyboards as it registers the key you’ve pressed when you take your finger off the key, instead of when you tap on it. The added benefit is if you press a key and see that it’s the wrong one, you can easily slide your finger to the correct key. Punctuation slide Here’s a real time-saver: The next time you need to add a punctuation mark, press and hold the .?123 button until the numeric and punctuation keyboard appears, slide your finger to the key you want, and release it. Not only will you type the punctuation mark, but you’ll find yourself back in alphabet mode without having to press the ABC key. Unlock caps lock Typing in all caps may be considered impolite, but sometimes it’s necessary. The caps lock functionality isn’t enabled by default; to turn it on, go to Settings: General: Keyboard and tap on Enable Caps Lock. Then, when you’re typing, quickly double-tap on the Shift key; it’ll turn blue to tell you caps lock is on. Tap on it once more to disable caps lock. Department of corrections No matter how good a typist you are, mistakes happen. Fortunately, the iPad’s pretty darn smart. By looking at the letters near the ones you typed, it can deduce with surprising accuracy what you meant to type. Once you’ve typed a few more letters, the iPad will likely figure out what you meant and will offer the suggestion in a text bubble. To accept the iPad’s suggestion, just press the spacebar or a punctuation mark. If the iPad’s being a little overeager, tap on the suggestion and it’ll go away. Dismiss the iPad’s suggestion for the same word twice, and it’ll add the word you actually typed to the internal dictionary, so it will be checked for in the future. Zoom in If you discover a typo, it’s easy enough to fix. Simply tap on the spot where you want the cursor to appear, and then tap on backspace to clear your mistake. However, controlling the cursor this way can be challenging. For even more precise results, tap and hold on the text to make a magnifying loupe appear. As you drag the loupe around the body of text, the text insertion point will follow it – so you can easily position Autocorrect Type a wrong letter and the iPad will the cursor exactly where you want it. try to fix it.

  • 18. Feature: Getting to know the iPad 4Get to know ContactsDiscover how to add, manage and use contacts on the iPad 4 W ith the advent of Internet communication, the amount of contact information people have to remember has quadrupled. Phone numbers, email addresses, chat handles, usernames, aliases – needless to say, it can get complicated, fast. Thankfully, your device can store all of this and more in the Contacts app, which syncs across iOS to provide communication auto-completion across the board. To make sure your Contacts list is as up-to-date as possible, here are a few ways to keep things neat, organised and useful. Import contacts iTunes, in addition to syncing calendars, apps and email accounts, can also take care of your Contacts organisation. To sync your contacts, iTunes will require you to connect specifically with one computer. Syncing is also bi-directional – any changes made to a contact on your device will show up on the computer the next time you connect the two, and vice versa.

Feature: Inside the iPad 4Inside the iPad 4 Discover the amazing tech inside the iPad 4 By iFixit.comW hen you hold a iPad in your hands for the first time, you realise just how incredible a piece of engineering it really is. The iPad comprises an ultra-powerful display with a full Multi-Touch interface and a few slender buttons – all held within a superbly crafted (and incredibly slender) case.As when it first launched, the iPad does feel somewhat ‘magical’ to use. It’s not that you can’t figure out howit works (it’s a tablet computer, after all), but with so much contained in such a small space you find it hardto believe how Apple have managed to cram it all in. And, like most Apple products (in fact, more than otherApple products), the iPad is a sealed unit designed to keep your prying eyes away from its innards. So what does the iPad 4 contain? Our friends at iFixIt (www.ifixit.com) are experts at taking apart technicaldevices (and showing people how to fix them). They’ve taken the iPad 4 apart, stripped it downand discovered what hides behind the screen and what holds it all together. Let’s take a look inside… Tech specs Apple has stunned the tech world once again. A mere 7 months after the announcement of the iPad 3, the iPad 4 was introduced. Here are the tech specs: ● Dual-core Apple A6X processor with quad-core GPU ● 9.7 inch LCD, backlit in-plane switching LED with 2048-by-1536 pixel Retina display ● 16, 32, or 64 GB flash memory ● 5MP HD rear-facing camera ● Lightning connector 1: Lightning One of the major differences between the 3rd and 4th generation iPads is the connector.

  • 21. 5: New LG display As opposed to the Samsung display we found in the iPad 3, the new iPad LCD is manufactured by LG. Apple has reportedly been working to move away from Samsung as a primary supplier, so this LG display is not surprising. However, Apple often relies on multiple suppliers for a single component, meaning there are quite likely other LCD manufacturers lurking inside other iPad 4s.4: Opened upWith the adhesive out of the way, we open up the iPad. As expected,this stage looks no different from the previous generation.6: LCD cablesContinuing to examinedifferences in the LCDcables… well, Apple useda different colour Sharpie. 7: All aboard We lift up the LCD to reveal the battery. The battery is labeled with the same model number (A1389) as in the last round, so it’s no surprise that it’s another 3.7 V, 43 Whr package. Like the iPad 3, the battery is adhered very securely to the rear case. Since batteries are consumables that wear out, the trend of glued-in, hard-to-access batteries in iPads and other Apple devices is unfortunate. The Complete Guide to the iPad 4 21

Feature: Speed testing the iPad Getting quad The faster A6X processor ensures that the iPad 4 can run 3D games and complex visual graphics much quicker than the iPad 3 or iPad miniSpeed testing the iPad 4Fourth-generation iPad is faster, stronger, better By Mark Hattersley P ut a fourth-generation iPad down next to a third-generation iPad, and good luck telling them apart. In fact, the only difference between the two is what kind of cable you plug into them. The fourth-generation iPad joins the iPhone 5, iPad mini, iPod touch, and iPod nano in sporting Apple’s new Lightning connector. All the big changes take places internally: in particular the presence of the all-new A6X chipset. This contains a custom Apple designed 32nm 1.4GHz dual-core processor (based on the ARMv7) with quad-core GPU running at 300Mhz. Apple claims that this offers twice the performance of the A5 chip found in the iPad 3. (The A6 processor, found in the iPhone 5, incidentally is a dual- core, triple-core graphics chipset). Our iPad 4 GeekBench 2 test reported that the A6X was 1.39GHz with 1GB of RAM – 988MB for our exact sample. The GeekBench 2 benchmark results returned a new record of 1764 (the iPad 3 scored in the region of 759) and in the SunSpider JavaScript test the iPad 4 managed a speedy average of 840ms. Graphics performance on the iPad 4 was also considerably faster than the iPad 3. We performed a iPad 4 graphic benchmark using GLBenchmark 2.51. with a frame rate of 183fps (compared to24 The Complete Guide to the iPad 4

This is potentially good news for gaming on iOS, which could take a big leap forward in the coming year (especially as these boosts are also replicated in the iPhone 5). Some recent games on iOS are already looking on par with the previous generation of consoles (Xbox and PS2) and it won’t be long before they’re visually similar to the current generation. But here and now there’s little difference in graphical navigation, or iOS. Zooming around Apple Maps felt a little faster. Demanding apps such as iMovie and Garageband may also display notable improvements when rendering video and music. But on the whole we don’t think there’s a big difference between the iPad 4 that’s on sale, and the iPad 3 that it replaces: at least not for the time being. We also measured web performance, using Page Load, SunSpider and WebVizBench. The iPad 4 got the fastest score on two out of three (SunSpider and WebVizBench) although the new iPad mini beat it just slightly on Page Load (6.7sec for the iPad mini compared to 7.1sec for the iPad 4). Considering the iPad mini doesn’t have the Retina Display that’s a pretty good achievement, and the difference was only .400ms. On the whole the iPad 4 is manifestly the fastest iPad on the market, and the fastest one ever made. It’s high performance will ensure good compatibility with apps for many years to come.iPad and iPhone graphics, processor, and web tests Egypt Egypt HD Egypt Classic Pro GeekBench Page Load SunSpider WebVizBench Offscreen Offscreen Offscreen Offscreen iPad mini 756 6.7 1.44 3.6 86.7 14 49 145.3 iPad 4 1764 7.1 0.84 3.7 183.7 51 129 364 iPad 3 759 10.4 1.43 2.1 126 26.7 86.3 238 iPad 2 760 11.1 1.44 1.8 86.7 14 48.7 145.7 iPhone 5 1623 8.2 0.92 3.6 147.3 28.7 91.7 253GeekBench and WebVizBench results are scores (higher numbers are better).

  • 26. Feature: Faster browsing with 4G LTEFaster browsing with 4G LTE Discover how to access the next generation of mobile internet By Karen Haslam & David Price O ne of the disappointments about the third-gen iPad launch from a British perspective was 4G: a heavily hyped fast-internet facility that was no use to UK buyers, since the infrastructure wasn’t in place. (This was such a disappointment, in fact, that Apple was obliged to stop advertising its cellular-equipped iPad 3 model as ‘4G’ entirely.) And, when the infrastructure came along: it didn’t work with the version of 4G included with the iPad 3. The iPad 4 is equipped with the facility to use 4G internet (in fact a technically different facility, as is explained below), and this time things are looking up for UK buyers, since Everything Everywhere is offering a 4G service in this country. Here’s how to get 4G internet You should expect connectivity with your iPad 4, and answers to (hopefully) all your questions about 4G a typical speed of and the iPad mini. What is 4G all about? It’s the fourth- between 8-12 Mbps generation mobile internet network, which basically allows you to get faster, and more reliable, web access on your tablet than you’re used to at the moment. And it’s just been switched on, as part of the new EE (formerly Everything Everywhere) service. EE uses 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology which has a theoretical speed of 100Mbps (megabits per second). EE told us “Average 4G download speeds are likely to be between 8 and 10 megabits a second (Mbit/s), with possible instances of up to 40 Mbit/s. Typical upload speeds are between 5-6Mbit/s, with possible instances of up to 15Mbit/s. Typical 4G latency is only 60-70 milliseconds (ms), while 3G latency is typically 100-125ms. You can really appreciate the difference if you’re flicking through webpages or playing online action games. “ Who the heck is EE? It’s a new network in the UK being formed out of Orange and T-Mobile. EE is a new brand which will operate alongside Orange and T-Mobile – they will remain as brands and retailers in their own right. They will all use the EE network and therefore smartphones will display ‘EE’ instead of ‘Orange’ or ‘T-Mobile’ by Christmas. All existing Orange and T-Mobile stores will also be rebranded to EE and will serve customers of all three brands. Do I need an EE SIM? Yes, you’ll need to get a new Nano-SIM (that’s the26 The Complete Guide to the iPad 4

You’ll need a separate Nano-SIM to the one usedin your phone, and you’ll need to take out a contract with each one. Can I get it where I live? The initial rollout has seen a total of 16cities 4G-equipped. Here’s the list: Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff,Derby, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Hull, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester,Nottingham, Newcastle, Sheffield and Southampton. Beyond this EE said it will reach 70 percent of the UK by the end of2013 and 98 percent by the end of 2014. The EE website (explore.ee.co.uk/coverage-checker) has a coverage checker that you can useHow much does it cost? As we expected, EE is charging a premium forits new service, and iPhone 5 owners looking to use 4G will have to payconsiderably more than 3G contract owners, as well as take out a 12 or 24month contract with EE. The plans are organised by data usage from £21 per month (on a 12month contract) for 500MB. The monthly charges are: 500MB - £21 1GB - £26 3GB - £31 5GB - £36 What happens if I break the limit? EE has announced that if you go overyour data plan you stop getting Cellular data. They do not intend to chargeyou for exceeding the data plan (which is a good thing because the extracharges tend to be quite high). Which plan should I get? Your milage will vary depending on how muchyou use your iPad mini and what type of content you download. Bear in mindthat 4G internet is fast, which means you’re using more data more quickly.We find that 1GB is generally enough for one month’s worth of general webbrowsing, and email. But start adding iTunes Match and streaming servicessuch as BBC iPlayer, Netflix or Lovefilm then perhaps go up to 3GB; or 5GB. The Complete Guide to the iPad 4 27

Feature: iPad 4 accessories20 Hot iPad AccessoriesThe iPad is fantastic by itself, but there are plenty of accessoriesthat you can get to make it even better By Mark HattersleyI f you’ve been using an iPad for a while, you’re likely well aware of its wide variety of accessories. But if your new iPad is your first, you may be wondering about the best accessories and add-ons. The good news is that because the iPad 4 is nearly identical to the iPad 2 and iPad 3, so the market isalready packed with compatible accessories. The bad news is that, for the same reason, there are so manyoptions that you may not know where to start. Here’s a quick list of the most-useful iPad accessories outthere on the market. Some of these are more essential than others. A good case is a must, as it keeps your iPad safe fromscrapes and drops. Bear in mind that the iPad 3 and iPad 4 are both slightly thicker than the iPad 2. Whichmeans that while most iPad 2 cases will fit the newer iPads, those that are especially fitting – such that0.76mm of thickness would matter – may not fit. So when buying such a case, you should make sure that themanufacturer claims it really does fit the latest iPad before parting with your cash. Cases aside, there’s a wealth of speakers, earphones, TV tuners, camera connectors, and keyboards. Allmanner of items, in fact. So let’s take a look at some of the current kit on the market… Brunswick England Company: Proporta URL: www.proporta.com Price: £120 This all-leather folio should appeal to executives. It’s well padded and adds plenty of protection while on the move. A fold in the rear allows it to function as a stand in two positions: one raised up for presentations, and a lower one that’s for typing. All ports are easily accessible without removing the iPad from the case. It’s available in black or cranberry too. If you want a less expensive leather case, the Proporta Smart Recycled Leather version (£35) is also good. Studio Neat Cosmonaut Company: Studio Neat URL: www.studioneat.com Price: £15 If you’re looking to paint and draw on your iPad (with apps like Brushes) then you might want to invest in a stylus. The Cosmonaut, from US-based Studio Neat, was born out of the desire to create a great stylus that didn’t try to replicate the feel of pen on paper. The makers say the idea was to feel more like a dry erase marker, which should mean more responsive mark-making on iPad. Despite concerns about the size and shape, which resemble a child’s large crayon, we are still impressed. The Cosmonaut offers control and precision lacking from slighter, more traditional pen-like options, working well with not only the iPad, but iPhone and iPod touchscreens too.28 The Complete Guide to the iPad 4

The HoverBar from TwelveSouth is one such device. It’s a malleable metal arm with a clamp at one end and an iPad mount at the other, but it’s how it’s put to work that really counts. Attaching the clamp to any surface or object allows you to hover your device at any angle or height you require. Floating next to an iMac is an obvious solution, but the HoverBar works equally well from a bedside table, kitchen counter, car seat or anything offering an inch of available area to grip.

It’s not just apps that Apple has turned its hand to either; books are now a major part of the iPad 4 world. The fantastically sharp Retina display on the iPad 4 means that it’s great for reading on the go. You can pack hundreds of books into your phone and take them anywhere. Or, simply add to your collection from wherever you are in the world – no more hardback books to fit into your suitcase. The App Store and iBookstore are, as you might expect from Apple, beautifully designed and getting content from either of them is supremely simple. All that stands between you and millions of books and apps is a few taps on an iPad’s screen. Being able to get apps that enhance your iPad 4 or books to keep you entertained, wherever you are at any time, day or night, is amazing. There are restrictions that stop you from downloading the bigger apps over your mobile data connection, so you may need to be on a wireless network for some.

Well, now you don’t. iMessage is built in to KiT LiST: ■ iPad iOS and lets you send free messages to anyone else with ■ Contacts with an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. You can send pictures and iOS devices ■ Internet connection video, as well as just plain text messages, as long as the recipients are running an Apple device. Time required: 5 mins Difficulty: beginner The best part is there’s no setup involved. Your iPad will automatically detect if that person has a device with iOS and send the message to them using a system Apple calls iMessage, which you access using the Messages app. There’s often some confusion betwen the two: Messages is the App you use, iMessage is the name of the service that sends free messages to other iOS devices. So The Messages app can send iMessages (and also SMS text messages on the iPhone, but not on the iPad). You can send group messages, so if you need to let everyone in the family know what’s going on, just add them to the conversation and type away. You can see when the other person is typing a reply and there are delivery and read receipts so that you know when your message got through. All the messages are encrypted with the latest security software so there’s no chance your conversations can be read by anyone else. Also, thanks to the new voice recognition system, you can dictate messages direct to your iPad. This makes sending those short messages even faster, and it’s surprisingly accurate, too. Don’t worry though, you can still use the keyboard if talking to your phone makes you feel a little bit self-conscious.62 The Complete guide to the iPad 4

With Notification Center in iOS all this has changed and now your new iPad experience is much more streamlined. The Notification Centre lets you see far more detail about exactly what’s going on, and you can get to it from anywhere at any time. You can happily continue to do what you were doing, be that watching a movie, playing a game or editing a document, and your other apps won’t get in the way. You still get to see what notifications are coming in, but it’s on your terms. The Notification Center doesn’t have to be restricted to standard messages though. It will display the weather forecast and – if you’re interested – stock prices, too. All the notifications are kept hidden away until you really need them.

Too much information to scroll through and the usefulness of Notification Center is gone. Happily, you can manage how your notifications will appear and which apps will be able to use them.

Be aware though that your iPad needs to be connected to the internet in order to work: all the grunt work of transcribing your voice is done by Apple’s giant server farms, but it’s a small price to pay for not even having to train your device to recognise your voice.

Many people long to read in-depth articles, books (like this one), and classic magazines like Macworld all in a new digital form. Newsstand is designed to try and help bridge the gap between the print and online publishing worlds by combining the richness of published material with a highly convenient way of accessing that information wherever you happen to be, all from the comfort of your iPad (the best part is that you can also get the same content for your iPhone and iPod touch via the same app). You can choose to buy individual issues or subscribe for a set period of time. When you select the latter, new issues will appear automatically in your Newsstand without you even having to get up and pick up the mail. Newsstand isn’t an exclusive feature of the iPad 4. In fact, it can be used on any iOS device, even the earlier iPads, but the sheer quality of the iPad 4’s screen makes reading magazines and newspapers that much more of a pleasant experience since it feels like you’re looking at glossy print.
