Next up from Apple (AAPL -0.8%): An updated regular iPad (Apple calls it 4th-gen). The device features an A6X processor (2x as fast as A5X), faster Wi-Fi, a Lightning connector, similar battery life, and unchanged pricing. And the iPad Mini: it sports a 7.9" display (as expected), is 7.2mm thick (23% thinner than regular iPad), and weighs just 0.68 lbs. Apple also announced a revamped iBooks app - the education market clearly figures prominently here. (live blog, webcast - available on Safari)
