Apple iPad 3 ( iPad HD ) Will Support 4G Network

According to the latest news from iMore website who has successfully predicted the Apple iPad event will be held today: Apple iPad 3 will support LTE 4G network. While The Wall Street Journal also reported few days ago that Apple will sell iPad 3 with 4G version through Verizon and AT & T in United States.

At present, iMore site reveals that Apple iPad 3 conference will include 4G LTE network support. Since 2012 we have heard of such news already: iOS device will support 4G LTE network, but it is uncertain whether it will be achieved with the arrival of iPad 3 ( or called iPad HD, it’s not sure yet ), in other words, Apple will keep it until the iPhone 5 in October this year.

Some media think it is very significant that iPad 3 supports 4G LTE network, which can be regarded as the judgement whether the next generation iPhone would support such a network or not.

Although there are predictions and rumors everywhere recently, it is more likely that we believe iPad 3 will be endowed with a quad – core processor. Whether it is true or false, the answer will be announced soon!
