When Tim Cook/Steve Jobs recently confirmed that Apple is indeed working on an iPad 2, speculation regarding how they would improve on the groundbreaking iPad was rampant. One of the main things prospective iPad 2 owners want to know is whether or not the same impressive battery life enjoyed by its predecessor will accompany the newest version of the iPad, especially when there will likely be significant upgrades featured by the iPad 2. So far there are already reports that the iPad 2 will have a 2058×1536 screen resolution. How will this affect the amount of time users get out of each charge?
Jobs made headlines the first time around when he responded online to a blogger who was openly questioning the run-time of the iPad battery. The head of Apple answered by simply saying “yes, we are getting 10 hours in 1.5 pounds. Sent from my iPad.”
The iPad battery did indeed live up to its lofty expectations. Can we expect the same with the iPad 2?
