    So is the new iPad Aid display a new IGZO display? How did Apple reduce the battery size so much and retain the battery life. I know that they said that the A7 processor is much more efficient, but if it was that much better then the iPhone 5s would have even better battery life than it does. Did they go to the Sharp IGZO display which is far more energy efficient only needing one LED var to light it rather than two.

    We probably won't know until the tear down sites get their hands on one.

    If it is, I believe it will be one of the first with that new technology.

    I'm sure they would have said during the event.

    Which I can't wait for. Especially with the Mini.

    They don't always give the details of all upgrades unless it is their own developed technology. I guess we'll have to see what ifixit says in their tear down.

    Apple.com says it's an IPS screen. IGZO probably won't debut on Apple products until iPhone 6 next year.

    I'm really impressed that they were able to get the ten hour battery life while slimming down the iPad Air without an IGZO panel.

    Walt Mossberg said he got 12 hours of battery life from the Air after playing videos back-to-back over Wi-Fi and getting emails constantly pushed. He says that's the best performance in a tablet that he's ever tested.

    I can't wait to test it myself.

    Well perhaps it is IGZO after all. http://www.macrumors.com/2013/11/05/...ower-displays/

    I got over 15 hours on mine after the first full charge.

    I stand corrected. This is the first bit of news I've seen that Apple went to IGZO. I previously thought it wouldn't arrive until next year due to supply constraints. Makes sense though.

    Now I just wish they laminated the glass with the display like on the iPhone.

    Wow, I didn't get that much. I didn't run it down to zero either though. The battery life does seem good though.

    That was 15 hours of use on 2+ days standby. Mostly using apps that use wifi.
