Apple released the iPad 3rd Gen 4G on March 16, 2012. Changes include the new A5X processor, an upgraded 5 megapixel rear-facing camera, and a higher resolution 'retina' display. The iPad 3rd Gen 4G includes 802.11n wireless and 3G and 4G capabilities (service is subject to carrier and local availability). This iPad model was offered in 16, 32, or 64 GB capacities with color options of white or black.
After only seven months of official availability, the third-generation iPad was discontinued on October 23, 2012, following the announcement of the fourth generation iPad. The third-generation iPad had the shortest lifespan of any iOS product. It is also the last iPad to support the 30-pin dock connector, as the fourth generation iPad and later use the Lightning connector.
