    The New iPad is what Apple called the iPad 3. The iPad 4 is the replacement for the iPad 3, and was announced a few days ago. It is available for pre-order. The iPad 5 is a not yet existent speculated replacement for the iPad 4.

    Ipad 3, 4 and 5! Someone please explain

    On October 23, 2012, Apple announced a new iPad (the next generation, iPad 4 ... whatever it's called). As a result, the original new iPad (the iPad3) is no longer offered for sale by Apple. You can only get the iPad3 from third party vendors or as new.

    So, technically, we have the iPad1, the iPad2 and the iPad4. There is no iPad 5 (unless people are speculating on what is coming in the future).

    As a side note, Apple no longer refers to iPads numerically - unless they are talking about the iPad2. That is the only one with a number. For the others, Apple just calls them "iPads."

    There, clear as mud! Regardless, hope this helps clarify.

    Is the iPad 4 the mini iPad? Or is that different altogether?

    Hello dmlaty, perhaps a picture will help? The iPad Mini is a different product. If you go to Apple.com, you'll find this picture. These are the three iPad models currently for sale by Apple. It is their iPad product line. Note prices quoted are US$.

    The iPad mini has a 7.5" screen, the iPad 4 and all other iPads has a 9.75" screen. They are two different devices that were both released on October 23rd.

    Ok thanks everyone, now I see how it works. So I bought recently "the new iPad" which in theory is iPad 3 but not officially named iPad 3.

    Is there much new on the iPad 4 from the one I have?

    It has an upgraded FaceTime camera, with 1.3 megapixels vs the old one at 0.3 megapixels. It has the faster A6X processor and the new lightning connector, introduced on the iPhone 5.
