How did the iPad get developed?

Updated on December 21, 2010

Is this a audio or visual media piece?

So you think you want an iPad! You got one for Christmas! You think you know what it is for and what you can do with it but just imagine........

Well, Apple thought you might have a need for an audio and visual media piece that could hold books, movies, music and games as well surfing the web. So in 2010, Apple announced they would take pre-orders for the tablet size computer. Now you and I were thinking the iPad was a stand alone product but when we look at the same operating system for both the iPhone and the iTouch units, it is obviously by design. The three units are controlled by the same multitouch display which makes the iPad very different from most of the other tablet computers in the marketplace.

Apple believed that mobile marketing would be the wave of the future. When the iPad was initially introduced, the skeptics believed that with the price of laptop whose cost was much less money ande included a full keyboard, DVD drive, USB jacks, camera-card slot and camera would render the iPad insufficient. Who was going to want to carry a laptop, a smartphone, and a third machine.

Wrong!!!! In late 2010, Steve Jobs indicated that for the prior fiscal quarter, the iPads outsold the Macs. What an accomplishment!!

Apple has successfully introduced a new kind of computing device but there are some things missing. Since it was designed with an exposed screen, without a camera or separate keyboard as well as memory card slots or USB ports, the product is built for assessories. Apple discovered immediately that the iPad users wanted more in their machine as the users downloaded more than one million applications from the company's App Store and more than 250,000 electronic books from its iBookstore.

A whole new industry will arrive shortly after the initial purchasers start to expect more from their iPad. As we have already seen, to have an app accepted by Apple for the iPad has been money to those who have demonstrated the imagination to develop new products. The purchasers of the iPad have indicated a willingness to spend over and over again on applications for the iPhone and iPod so it is expected to continue with the iPad. The potential is only limited by the imagination of the user.

Go to to start receiving the basic understanding of all the processes available for your new iPad. This machine will open a whole new generation of opportunities to communicate, visualize, and grow in knowledge through those books, movies, music and games both in the piece and the internet.
