After the unimaginable success of the original iPad, Apple released a thinner, faster and smarter iPad 2 in the March of 2011. What was to be Steve Jobs’ penultimate keynote, he described the product as ‘magical’. This magic was echoed in the fact Apple sold 30 million units in the nine months following its release. After testing the waters with the original iPad, Apple built on everything consumers loved about the original, and more.
The 2nd generation iPad had the same 9.7 inch, 1024x768, 132ppi screen as its predecessor. It looked similar, only slimmer and sleeker. The model was 33% thinner, moving from 0.53 to 0.34 inches. Whilst the size and shape was not markedly different, Steve Jobs and users alike emphasised how these small changes made huge improvements to how it felt. It felt slimmer, and slightly lighter – weighing 1.33lbs compared to 1.5. The emphasis on detail and feel are just one the reasons we here at Zapper admire Apple product design. Every detail matters. But how about the functionality of the iPad 2?
Well, despite being thinner and lighter the iPad 2 was considerably faster. It used a new Apple A5 chipset combined with dualcore 1GHz ARM Cortex A9 processors, dual-core PowerVR graphics processors and a whopping 512MB of RAM (over double the original’s RAM). Impressive? Well, the iPad 2 managed to perform GPU tasks NINE times faster, and CPU tasks twice as fast. This illustrates the way Apple saw potential for the iPad concept having released the original, and then remarkably improving on its processing capabilities – genius.
One of the biggest additions to the iPad 2 was the introduction of cameras. The model packed two cameras – a rear-facing 1.3 megapixel camera and a front-facing 0.3 megapixel. This allowed users to use popular apps such as FaceTime and PhotoBooth. The most impressive feat of all? The iPad 2 cost exactly the same as its predecessor.
