Apple To Release iPad 3 In March And Donates $100 Million To Charity
It was all set that Apple was going to release its next generation iPad in February but a new Japanese report just came in that clarified that Apple will hold an event in February, but it won’t be an unveil of the new iPad because the iPad will be released in March and not in February.
It was said the unnamed iPad and iOS 5.1 will be released in February but that has been corrected saying it was just half of the truth. One Asian tech site said that Apple will hold a mysterious event in February and won’t be launching any products on that day. However the site didn’t said exactly what was going to happen. It seems even they know only the half side of the truth.
It very much presumed that the February event will be just like last month’s release of iBooks Author and iBooks 2 where they just released stuff related to software. So maybe even this event is related to the iOS 5 update and may be news of the new Apple TV!
Even Bloomberg reported in January that the new iPad is going to be launched in March, as it will be the same month where the iPad 2 was launched. There were even reports that the next generation iPad will have higher resolution with ~254 pixels and maybe it will even have Retina Display, LTE compatibility and A6 chipset which will be equivalent to quad-core processor.
Another news came trailing behind this: The CEO of Apple, Tim Cook has donated $100 million for a charity. Last week Cook did a generous act by donating $100 million to charity.
He made the announcement in the celebration of Apple’s Q4 results. He donated $50 million to Product RED, other $50 to Stanford Hospitals, $25 million for a new children’s hospital and the rest $25 to a new prime building.
It seems the new CEO of Apple has been following Bill Gates footsteps, as we know Steve Jobs always against giving away any money or even awarding to his employees.
But the new CEO has also been giving discounts on their devices and has organized charitable program that befits all its employees up to $10,000 every year.
All this came after the reports came about extreme working conditions in a Chinese factory for manufacturing iPads. To which Tim Cook replied, “We care about every worker in our worldwide supply chain. Any accident is deeply troubling, and any issue with working conditions is cause for concern. Any suggestion that we don’t care is patently false and offensive to us”
