Product information

Apple’s fourth generation iPad, iPad with Retina display comes complete with iOS 7, a fast Apple A6X chip, iSight and FaceTime HD cameras, up to 10 hours of battery life and a stunning 9.7-inch Retina display. And with a vast library of over 500,000 apps and games available to download from the App Store, you can do almost anything.

Retina display
The 9.7-inch Retina display features 3.1 million pixels that help to deliver rich detail in images and sharp, clear text on websites and in eBooks. Broad colour saturation brings images to life with vivid colours, delivering incredible visuals that almost leap from the screen. The responsive multi-touch display allows for smooth swiping tapping and pinching, bringing the world of iPad to your fingertips.

Seamless performance
The powerful A6X chip brings your apps and games to life, delivering smooth performance whether you’re simply browsing the web or racing through your favourite driving game. The A6X includes quad-core graphics, so it can provide incredibly detailed visuals in 3D games without monopolizing energy. This means you’ll still be able to enjoy longer lasting battery life, even when playing power hungry games.

iOS 7- simpler than ever
iPad with Retina display will arrive in your hands with iOS 7 installed. iOS 7 has been redesigned with a beautiful new look, easy-to-use interface, amazing features and improved security. Smarter multitasking, Control Centre and AirDrop combined with iCloud makes using an iPad even simpler than ever. And with apps like iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote free to download, you’re in a better position than ever to enjoy the best of iPad.

Preserve special moments
Dual cameras on iPad with Retina display give you plenty to smile for. The front-facing FaceTime HD camera is great for online video chats, with a next-generation backside illuminated sensor with larger pixels helping to brighten your calls and selfies, even in low-light.

Fabulous product as always from Apple Bought this Apple iPad for my husband for his birthday. He loved it and feel it is still the best table even though there are many now on the market, but if you want a 10 ins screen then Apple is the best. John Lewis as always had fabulous service, I used the order and collect service so I could collect at my convenience, no added fee and my husband was totally unaware. 18 November 2013
Excellent product. Bought this for my son for Christmas.I have the iPad 2 which he uses quite a lot.Now he will have his own and I can use mine a little bit more. 09 October 2013
Superb What a great piece of kit and so easy to set up. I am now considering going Apple everywhere as I am getting fed up with Windows and everything freezing up after 2-3 years of use. My next purchase will be an iMac. Great products and lovely to look at and use. Now I just need a case. 07 October 2013
Amazing Apple To be honest I was a little concerned we'd actually use an ipad but I was very wrong. Simply one of the best tech products we have ever purchased. Watching catch-up or live streaming tv programmes whilst kids watching cartoons - amazing!!!! 18 September 2013
Love my iPad I have loved using my iPad, the screen display is great and crystal clear. I get so much use out of it! 22 August 2013
Present for 78 year Mum Only had a week, my Mum was using an HP laptop before but has taken to the Ipad very well. She loves the weight/size and the fact it is on as soon as she rolls back the lid. She is still getting use to Safari. Finds the camera really easy to use but we were surprised that there is no flash. Went for JL because of the 2 year warrenty 03 July 2013
Great Expectations It's a bit like when someone tells you that you have to see this film, or read this book, and finally you do, and you think, 'What was all the fuss about?' So many of my friends have told me I must buy Apple, that's it's the only technology to have, I decided I had to dip my toe with an Ipad. Well, what was all the fuss about? 'Incredibly instinctive?' Not my instinct, I'm afraid. 'Well made'? Yes, I agree, but so different from the others? Not enough to justify the price. The wi-fi is very poor (and friends now confess to me that, 'Yes, that is true'). Time and time again my mobile or old laptop picks up where this doesn't. And now it's frozen on me, and has been for the last few days. Sooooo unimpressed! What was that children's story: 'The King's New Suit of Clothes'? This is not a gift from the Technology Gods, just a bit of above average, very fashionable hardware. There are alternatives, and this is going back to John Lewis asap. 24 March 2013
Fantastic Quality iPad I bought this iPad for my daughter for Christmas and it has been brilliant. The quality of the images is amazing, very simple to set up and use. The internet connection is amazingly fast and she is very pleased with it. Only downside is my son now wants one too! It is lightweight and having purchased an excellent cover from John Lewis it feels fully protected. 31 January 2013
