    Basically what I want to know is how much more advanced do you think the iPad 5 that will be released at the end of 2013 will be compared to the iPad 4?

    Depends in what you going your mom is going to use it for. In all likelihood, the 4 or even the iPad 2 would be plenty for her.

    I think going with the 4 is a solid choice. The 5 is most likely still 5-6 months away. The big improvements coming this year will be on the iPad mini. It's a safe bet and solid choice to go with the best current iPad available.

    I think it all depends on what the advances are. Any rumors out there?

    Siri is HUGE for her for her iPhone. Without Siri, she wouldn't be able to text. Better displays are important for her, too. Speed, too.

    There are no apps out there that need more power than the 4 has to offer. I don't think the screen will get any better-it's already fantastic.

    The rumors on the 5 are more on the body and shell (more like the mini) than the processor or RAM although it will undoubtedly increase as well.

    unless you are 1 month before the new release date. 6 months, well that is different when they release 1 a year.

    I haven't looked at the mini because it is too small for her. What are the advance in the mini?

    If the mini is too small for her, then get the bigger iPad. All I meant is that the mini has a much thinner body and smaller bezel, and those changes are rumored to be coming to the next full size iPad.

    Im going to say to wait for Christmas.

    Largely because I'm all for giving gifts to your mother, but an iPad for mothers day is a bit excessive.

    Spend the day with her, take her our for lunch, buy her some flowers. That should suffice

    we do go to brunch or dinner on mother's day but we give gifts, too. I was going to split it with my sister and brother.

    well, my general philosophy is to not buy old technology because the new technology becomes outdated fast enough.

    I don't think ipad5 will be much advance then the ipad 4. But some new applications and processor layout can be changed in ipad5, and there is no more possibilities that it will release in end of 2013. so i think you should go for ipad 4.
