Apple discontinues iPad 2 and replaces it with the iPad 4

The Apple iPad 2 has been discontinued on the company's official website starting today, and has been replaced with the Apple iPad 4 which comes with a Retina display. The iPad 2 was previously sold at $399, as a cheaper alternative to the Apple iPad Air. Now its place and price has been borrowed by the 16GB iPad 4.

Apple doesn't seem to have plans to offer the iPad 4 in other storage variants (other than 16GB), but do have the cellular model for $529. The iPad 4 has a 9.7 inch display with a 1536 by 2048 pixel resolution, a two cameras and an Apple A6X processor.

The second-generation iPad seemed like a strange low-cost alternative to the iPad Air from the onset, as it was a few generations older - after all, Apple released the iPad 2 way back in 2011. So it’s only logical to finally see such an old product retired.

The iPad 4 was not the first iPad to feature a Retina display, the Apple iPad 3 which had a short lifespan after the iPad 2 was the first to introduce the high resolution display to the iPad but was since replaced by the iPad 4 which offered a new A6 chip, which is roughly twice as fast as the iPad 3's A5X chipset, better front-facing camera, and support for dual-band channel bonding Wi-Fi, which can increase connection speeds at home. It also adds extended 4G LTE support for international regions.

The iPad 4 also comes with the one  other important technological benefit - the new Lightning to USB cable. This leaves the Apple iPhone 4s as the only device in Apple's lineup to still have the legacy 30 pin Apple connector.
