    Bought the Apple3, but according to Apple I could well have the latest iPad

    Even though people call them Apple 3 and Apple 4 for easier identification when discussing iPads, Apple have never ever used those model descriptions. Both the 3 and 4 they call the The iPad with Retina Display.

    In fact, my iPad3 seems to have disappeared entirely when I look at Apple's iPad specs in www.apple.com/ipad/compare/. You see Apple1, Apple 2 and iPad with Retina Display, comparing the"2" only with the very latest iPad. So I can't help feeling there is a message somewhere there by Apple, like "don't go sweating about upgrades and their timing. We are selling our iPad and will make changes of our choosing and our timing and all our customers will all own the "iPad with Retina Display" no matter the specs.

    The next incremental improvement may very well come out next March with let's say a USB port. Apple will not call it Apple 5 (but could officially call it the Apple3?&#128541 So we will all be happy campers and own "an iPad with Retina Display"? Will certainly cause problems in people advertising the different models for sale.

    Sorry but I disagree...
    Apple executives themselves at the Oct 23 "Special Event" called the two iPads with the retina display 3rd Generation & 4th Generation.

    Sorry but may I also disagree with the disagreements?👻 My post was not concerned with "generations". My point was that Apple has never, ever, officially, called their tablets iPad3 and iPad4

    The iPad 3 was officially the New IPad and the iPad 4 is now being touted as iPad with Retina Display. Bit of a mouthful I think

    It doesn't matter to me what I call it. Just give me the one with the latest guts.

    Ok.........I'm so confused.
    Are we both correct or both wrong?

    Guess it really doesn't matter anyway............I was just repeating what the big shots said.
