The Evade3rs dev team has just released the first untethered jailbreak for the latest release of iOS, including devices that house an A6 or A6X processor. This means that owners of the iPhone 5, the iPad mini, and the 4th generation iPad can get in on the untethered jailbreak game. This means that you no longer need to connect to a computer each time you need to restart your device in order to maintain your jailbreak. That is good news!
We all expected the iPad mini to be announced today, but not many people figured we would also get a new, 4th generation iPad. However, that's exactly what happened, as Apple strayed from its usual yearly update cycle, announcing a new full-sized iPad just six months after the last update. So, what's changed with the new iPad? For starters, it now packs in a new A6X processor, which Apple claims makes the new tablet twice as fast as its predecessor. It also brings a new FaceTime HD front camera, the new image processor technology that debuted on the iPhone 5, dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, and more LTE connectivity (including Sprint's network.) Last, but not least, the iPad also picks up the new Lightning connector, eliminating the 30-pin dock connector from all of Apple's current products.
Pricing remains the same across the board, so you can get the 4th generation iPad for $499 for the 16GB, $599 for 32GB, and $699 for 64GB. If you want an LTE model, just add $130 on top of those prices. The 4th generation iPad will go on sale on November 2nd, and you can pre-order one this Friday.
