Apple are widely expected to unveil the iPad Mini shortly and new rumours suggest they'll also be introducing a revised version of the iPad.
The iPhone 5 supports 4G LTE and the Guardian are reporting that Apple will introduce a revised iPad which adds support for the high-speed network. We presume it'll then be available in the UK from Everything Everywhere , but we doubt it'll support the spectrum the other UK operators will use to provide 4G LTE in the UK.
The price of the iPad is likely to increase if it supports 4G LTE because the required chips are pretty expensive. However, the benefits will be more than worth it because internet speeds could be up to 5 times faster .
The same source also reported that this revised version of the iPad will also include the new "Lightning Dock" connector , which debuted on the iPhone 5. This isn't a surprising revelation , but it does mean that anyone with old accessories will need to buy a converter to use them with the revised iPad.
The Guardian also reported that Apple are set to unveil the iPad Mini very soon. They also added that they expect it to only support WiFi, so you won't get 3G connectivity let alone 4G LTE support. This decision would make sense because Apple are very keen to keep the cost down to compete with the Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire.
