Wi-Fi + Cellular – this is now the title of the new iPad which was previously Wi-Fi + 4G.
The change comes about after pressure from consumer groups that the new iPad is not 4G compatible in most countries other than stateside.
Apple has now quietly changed its website to reflect the new name. In a statement they said,
“Carriers do not all refer to their high speed networks with the same terminology, therefore we’ve decided to use “Wi-Fi + Cellular” as a simple term which describes all the high speed networks supported by the new iPad. The advanced wireless features of the new iPad have not changed”
What surprised us most was that the change has also taken place on the US site, despite the device being compatible with the 4G networks available there and in Canada. It is currently still being listed as Wifi + 4G on Apple’s European websites.
