Default Apple TV Next and The New iPad Tech Specs Pages Post - Single Core A5 in Apple TV

Finishing off their special iPad and Apple TV announcement, Apple has just set the tech specs pages live for both the iPad and Apple TV, and the only major surprise is inclusion of a single core A5 in the new Apple TV.

Considering the die size (and thus cost) of the A5 SoC, it isn't altogether surprising to see Apple go with an A5 with one Cortex A9 fused off for the new Apple TV. This is likely a die harvesting move, and I wouldn't be surprised to see an iPod Touch show up with a similar single core A9 A5 SoC at some point in the future.

As predicted, the iPad next contains Apple's A5X SoC which we suspect is a 32nm A9MP2 and SGX543MP4, up from the A5's SGX543MP2. The rest of the specs on the new iPad page get a modest bump to, including a spec bump on 802.11a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 likely alongside use of Broadcom's BCM4330 module just like in the iPhone 4S. Battery also is considerably larger, at 42.5 Whr compared to the iPad 2's 25 Whr.
