It was just a couple of days ago that Apple sent an invite to the media, inviting them to the unveiling of the iPad 2. The event is scheduled to take place next week on Wednesday i.e. on March 2.
Now, one of the highly reliable sources of Engadget reports that Apple may also preview the next version of iOS (v5, in all probability) and may even release the SDK to developers. At the moment, it is unclear as to what all changes the next ‘major’ version of iOS will include, but hopefully a new notification system will be on-board.
Apple will release the new iPad with iOS 4.3 which will feature new four or five fingers based multi-touch gestures for easier multi-tasking. Along with the new multi-touch gestures, iOS 4.3 will also bring mobile hotspot to the iPhone and the iPad (hopefully).
Engadget also reports that due to Engineering issuesthe iPad 2 won’t ship with a higher resolution screen. The microSD card slot has also been shelved from the iPad’s successor.
With a slew of Android 3.0 Honeycomb based tablets being released to the public, the iPad 2 sure needs to have more than beefed up specs to attract consumers.
