The iPad cover Lock/Unlock setting is the same on the New iPad as it is on the iPad 2, both have the on/off option.

Sir, I bow to you. You are right! Why didn't I see the option before? Was it necessary to attach a smart cover for the option to show up? We did not see it before and the clerk went to an Ipad 2 and looked at it came back to mine and said I was right the option wasn't there. We tried the smart covers and they worked and now I see the option on my settings general/ etc. when I didn't see it before. How strange. I must be blind.

In Christ,

E.

Alan Charles Gielczyk:

With all this talk of storage space on this thread I would like to point out that some apps that have been updated are taking as much as 5x the storage of their iPad 2 counterpart. This will increase as more and more apps are updated to take advantage of the retina display. I think the typical app is 2-3x the size. I took this into consideration and went with the 64GB New iPad.

thanks for pointing that out, Alan.  I actually stopped by an Apple store last night to check them out.  Everyone is right, that fonts are sometimes light/fuzzy on ipad2.  I started wondering about moving up to 3, even though I really can't afford the 150 dollar increase (over a refurb).  But, I was working the angles.  After what you said, knowing I couldn't afford more than a 16gb, I think I will go with the ipad2.  I just don't want to prematurely run out of room, even with measures to keep storage needs low. (cloud, not using it for storing movies, etc).  But I am a little worried about eyestrain and annoyance since I will mostly use it for Logos and reading . . .

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

I know this will vary for everyone but I routinely use my iPad2 for reading in Logos for two hours or more each day and don't find it any problem at all.

Yeah, I have read quite a bit on my iPad 2 over the last year and have not noticed much strain. It should be fine for reading, although I am enjoying the retina display on the new one.

Ive had the Original iPad (identical displays as iPad2) since it release and have had no problems at all. I use it 3-4 hours daily. To be honest, if the iPad3 didn't have the retina display id actually still consider it "crispy."

If you have the financial means to afford iPad3 I would go for it. However, i wouldn't be worried about the iPad2 display. Its plenty good!

getting ready to pull the trigger, but having a hard time deciding about 16 vs. 32 gig.  i don't really need to download my library, but I would like a lot of it.  And . . . wanting to let the family use it for homeschooling.  Anybody here use it for homeschooling and have an idea what space might be needed for that?  I'm thinking my kids might want to make movies, too, alhtough I know it can be transferred via itunes.  Dang, just think I talked myself into a 32.  Wink  thoughts?

Looking at it as more of a long-term investment (you want upgrade with every iteration) and additional use by family members, I would be inclined to go with the 32GB model. You don't need talking into it but rather confirmation of the talking you've given yourself. Wink

lol. very perceptive.  and I need . . . another $49 bucks.  (plus $ for a good cover).  sigh.  I'd almost talked myself back down to the 16 GB, Wink

I would delay the cover instead of giving up an extra 16GB. Obviously, you will have long-term whatever storage you begin with (amazingly insightful, don't you think? Smile). If I understand the situation correctly, the upgraded apps for the retina screen will not differentiate between the iPad 1 or 2 or 3rd gen., so those with earlier iterations will (may?) see their precious storage used quicker than they had anticipated.

Perhaps more knowledgeable iPad users can chime in on the potential storage loss.

wow.  hadn't thought of that. I kind of assumed there'd be a difference, but it makes sense it is "all or nothin."

They're required to do this in states in which they have a physical presence (e.g. retail store, warehouse).

thanks.  I guess I could have my mom, in Iowa, buy it . . . (and that would save me $449 dollars, too).  oh welll.

I bought my iPad2 in Iowa...however, I didn't buy it online. I patronized a "local" Walmart and got the 32GB...shoulda got the 64 Sad but I went through the other night and cleaned out some stuff. I almost had my entire Logos library downloaded to the iPad, but decided to only download the "essential" stuff (15 or so Bibles, multiple dictionaries and most commentaries)...[:0]

You'll never regret the purchase and it makes reading fun again because I can scale up the font size for these old eyes.

For those with iPad 2's and New iPads:  Does the Logos app show "more content" on the new screen, or does the increased resolution just go to packing more pixels into what was shown before.

 I.e., does more text show on the new one?

I don't have either, but I feel pretty comfortable answering this question. Apple has designed the OS to be able to seamlessly scale the apps. As you describe, it just "packs more pixels" into what was shown. This change is similar to what happened with the older iPhones & the retina display ones. Old apps just look better, but they look best when optimized for the new pixels.

Spot on answer from alabama.  The Logos app on the new iPad does look great, without the need for Logos to update the app.  Tim Cook of Apple did say that this would be the case when he launched the latest iPad.  He also said that when app developers update their apps to intentionally take advantage of the "Retina display", the results will look even better.  I'm looking forward to finding out...
