iOS 5.1 Beta Reveals Plans for iPad 3 with Quad-Core A6 Chip

Posted on January 6, 2012 by

Most likely Apple will release a new iPad in the next few months, and it’s pretty obvious they will put a new version of their processor in it, rumored to be a quad-core A6. 9to5Mac found some more evidence today to support this rumor. Hidden inside iOS 5.1 beta, there is updated processing-core management software that quad-core processing. It is believed that iOS 5.1 is currently being tested on the yet-to-be-announced iPad 3, and will probably ship with it too.

So not really much new information, just more evidence that Apple is still planning on releasing an upgraded iPad this year….which is pretty much common sense.
