How To Find Out Which iPad You Have (UPDATED)

ipads How To Find Out Which iPad You Have (UPDATED)

Apple go to great lengths to confuse us when it comes to iPad’s don’t they? We were happy enough with the iPad 1 and iPad 2, and then came the next iPad.

This is where things started to get a little messy so bare with me here.

The iPad 3 was launched but it was officially named “The New iPad”, the iPad 4 was next on the list but again this was officially labelled as “The iPad with Retina Display”.

However the funny thing is that the iPad 3 (aka the New iPad) already had Retina Display, so really the iPad 4 (aka The Retina Display) should have been labelled as The iPad with Lightning Connector.

Right, take a deep breath; make yourself a cuppa, that’s the hard bit done with. We will now break down each iPad for you and show you how you can tell the difference between them.

Finding out the Storage

If you are unclear on what GB capacity your iPad holds then there is one easy way to find out. Flip your iPad over and take a look at the back.

Near the bottom under the Apple logo, and under the words ‘iPad’ you will see “16GB”, “32GB” or “64GB”.
