Apple Kills Off iPad 2 and Brings Back iPad 4 – 30-Pin Connector Almost Dead

Today Apple has discontinued the iPad 2 and replaced it with the, now re-released, iPad 4 at the same price. This kills off one of the last iOS devices that still used a 30-pin dock connector and also one of two iOS devices with a non-Retina display. Only the iPhone 4S still uses the 30-pin connector, and the original iPad Mini still has a non-retina display. Both of those should be gone later this year when the next generation of iPads and iPhones launch. 

Apple also released an 8 GB iPhone 5c yesterday in international markets to hit a lower price point.
