Rumours: Apple to launch thinner iPad 4 this summer.
According to the Chinese-language Apple Daily, cited by DigitTimes, “The upgraded iPad is said to feature indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO) panel technology to allow the device to feature an even thinner design and longer battery life. Panel supply will be shifted from Samsung to Sharp," the paper reportedly said.
The current IPS (in-plane-switching) displays used in the third-generation iPad require more space and more battery power to light up their three-million-pixel canvas to provide a good viewing experience.
