Just a few hours are left before Apple unveils its next generation tablet, dubbed iPad 3. Apple is ready to make a splash with its upcoming tablet and crush rising competition in the market. Here are the top 5 anticipated features that will help Apple stay ahead from any competition.

Retina Display

Retina Display is the best feature of iPad 3, and why not? No tablet in the world features such a clear display. Apple can draw in a lot of attention by bringing out their next-gen tablet with Retina display. If Apple doubles the screen resolution in iPad 3, the new tablet will pack a whopping 2048 X 1536 pixels. The upcoming tablet could even be called iPad HD, instead of iPad 3, to draw attention to the true HD screen.

Faster Processor

Quad-core tablets are new in the tablet market but soon they will make dual-core tablets eat dust in terms of performance. iPad 2 may not be the best tablet at the moment in terms of performance because there are zippier Android tablets around. But, expect Apple to strike back quickly with its iPad 3, featuring a quad-core A6 processor.


Apple’s Siri has grown to be an entertaining as well as a useful app. Controlling a device without even touching it opens up a whole new world of possibilities. However, some people have criticized Siri for its limitations. After iPhone 4S, iPad 3 is going to feature Siri in an improved version. The Siri in iPhone 4S is the beta version.

Better Camera

Camera department is where rival tablets outpace the iPad. The mere 0.7 megapixel camera fails to capture required amount of detail. Apple is most certainly going to bump up the camera sensor to 5- or 8-megapixel. Rumors are buzzing that iPad may have same camera module as found in iPhone 4S. There could also be a secondary HD camera for FaceTime – the video chat app.

Better Battery

Quad-core processor and Retina display are going to flood-out all the charge from tablet’s battery in no time. Apple fans want a better battery in the forthcoming tablet. Fulfilling the demand of users, iPad 3 will be powered by a bigger, better battery.
