How to Recover lost data on iPad

3 years after Steve Jobs introduced the first magical and revolution iPad, Apple has kept the same unbelievable price but once again set the bar higher when it comes to their most advanced technology. It's still 9.7-inches. It's still a Retina display. It still runs the over one million apps - almost half of which are now tablet optimized - in the App Store. But it's once again thinner, lighter, and faster. Only this time it's even thinner and lighter, and the speed boost? On paper at least, insane.

I can't even imagine the engineering skill and effort required to trim the full-sized iPad down to its new, Air-y size and weight. Every hundredth of an inch was no doubt a battle against the laws of physics and economics. Yet by all appearances, it looks like Apple won.
