10 Recent Apple Milestones That Would Make Steve Jobs Proud


The New iPad

Just like the iPhone 5,

Apple's third-generation iPad successfully maintains that minimalistic design that became synonymous with Steve Jobs.

Released in March, the new iPad has a faster processor and brighter display than Apple's first- and second- generation tablet, but its screen size is still 9.5 inches and the placement of its ports and buttons remained relatively unchanged. Put simply, there's no learning curve for Apple fanatics already in love with the product.

Aesthetics aside, Jobs would likely be pleased with how the new iPad is selling; Apple reported during its third-quarter earnings announcement in July that it sold a whopping 17 million iPads during the three-month period, marking an 84 percent unit increase year over year.
