Technology Review

Released in November 2012 and weighing just 662 grams, the iPad 4 entered into the world. With dimensions of 241.2 x 185.7 x 9.4 mm, and a capacity of up to 128GB, it was truly a new era for the technology world. The three buttons are all clustered up on the top left corner. One for the volume up/down switch, the on/off power switch, and the orientation lock/mute switch, all within reach of a fingertip. Though it seemed useless and too big now, back then it was an amazing feature. It stopped selling in 2013, to be replaced by the Ipad Mini.

It has a retina display, and great camera uses. It can hold 1.2MP photos, load 720p HD video, FaceTime video over Wi-Fi/cellular, has face detection, backside illuminadownloadtion, and you can tap to control exposure for video or still images. It also has a microphone, a 3.5-mm stereo headphone minijack (the ones earphones usually work for), a lightning connector ( the smaller charger) and a built-in speaker so you donít have to attach one to play music.

The battery lasts for 10 hours of web surfing, video watching, or music listening. It can charge via power adapter or USB to computer system too. There is a lot to accessibility, including VoiceOver and Guided Access. Guided access is a small dot that sits in the corner of your screen where you can tap it and access a menu of easy-reach options. There is also invert colors, and full-screen zoom magnification. Inverting colors just makes it easier to read / see during the night time, and full-screen zoom magnification helps if it is hard to see small things on the screen. It was a truly great device back when it was released, but now it isnít as much.
