Out The Box: How Can You Tell The Difference Between 'iPad 2' and The 'New iPad'?


 Out The Box: How Can You Tell The Difference Between 'iPad 2' and The 'New iPad'?
topic by Get Familia - 06-06-2012, 06:35 PM - Boxden > BX Tech


So, finally i've succumb to using an Apple product with my morning delivery of the 'New iPad'.

Not only is this my first Apple product, but itt's my first tablet of any kind.

Anyway, whilst noticing that the operating system is 5.1.1 which i believe is the latest IOS, i simply could not tell if i have been conned....as for all i know i could be holding an 'iPad 2' in my hands.

So could someone simply explain and point out what i should look for, which signifies that i have the latest model of the iPad...because i simply can not tell.

The box says nothing about 'New iPad', however it does state 'iCloud' (does it say this on the iPad 2 box also?).

It all looks the same and it think it's ridiculous that Apple doesn't state the actual name of the product on packaging or anywhere on the iPad itself.

Help me out with this trivial issue....thanks.

thats about it
if you are a non traditional user which most of us are in regards to browsing the net, listening to music and taking pics then you will see no big difference even compared to the ipad 1
if you are a gamer, graphic designer or producer then you will notice a difference

The model number doesn't say much...it's just a bunch of numbers & letters.

The back of the iPad just states 'iPad 16GB'.

I'm sure someone who copped online or somewhere in China would've been tricked in to thinking they purchased the 'New iPad', but actually got handed an 'iPad 2'.

If you've never seen or experienced an 'iPad 2', then it's preety difficult to the tell difference. The packaging states nothing obvious.

If u have a 4g model it'll be easy to tell...just look at your cellular data plan. "Wifi only" is tricky and I dont know why Apple wouldnt discreetly label the back of the iPad or even the packaging. And with this "New iPad" moniker it'll only get more confusing in the future. The only way to tell the difference for sure is to identify and match the serial numbers for the New gen of iPads. I cant tell the difference just by looking at the screen...even if its on.

Google the serial numbers to look for.

I agreed with FrankAndBeans, Google is your best friend. However, you can also go on to the Apple Store website and there is a link in the Support section to check your registration status an such. As for the telling the difference in the way it works/looks. Not much to differentiate. If it gets really really hot while playing a high performance game, it's a "New iPad".

You cant tell the difference because Apple just changes the name of its products and releases the same thing
