The processor was introduced for the iPhone 5S. It's new for the iPad, but not new for Apple. So was the M7 and the camera improvements. Again, there is no new technologies, except for MiNo. All "new" technologies were already introduced in other Apple products.

He took a lot of crap here from certain posters about that trade-off "excuse" for not doing larger hand-held retina screens. "If Google could do it with the Nexus . . . " etc., etc.

I thought they were maybe committed to an energy-saving screen technology like IGZO to do a retina iPad mini without sacrificing weight, thickness and battery life. Turns out they were committed to getting a new processor in production, the A7, and presumably new software to go with it, iOS7, in order to compensate for the retina screen's demands on the mini's batteries.

I recall you had a lot to say about their inability to do a retina screen on the mini. How did you think they were going to solve the problem? Do you now appreciate the complexity of their solution, and the accuracy of what Tim Cook was saying?

 

Do we know which screen tech are they using with the mini and the ipad 5
