    Upon checking firmware downloads from this site, I noticed there's a "Wi-Fi" and "Wi-Fi 2012" version for iPad 2.

    iPad 2 (Wi-Fi):
    iPad2,1_7.0.4_11B554a_Restore.ipsw

    iPad 2 (Wi-Fi 2012):
    iPad2,4_7.0.4_11B554a_Restore.ipsw

    I'm not quite sure what's the difference. I've actually just encountered the "Wi-Fi 2012" version. What is it?

    The 2012 version is the slightly revised version of the iPad 2 that was released after the introduction of the iPad 3 in the spring of 2012. Choosing the correct firmware download is important as the two firmware files are not interchangeable.
