Celebrating the 5th Anniversary of the iPad Release!

Celebrating the 5th Anniversary of the iPad Release!

It was five years ago when Steve Jobs, on a stage at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, unveiled a new product that would soon become a household name: the iPad. Released in April of that year, the iPad was available in six different models, offering choices between 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB, and connectivity options of either 3G or Wi-Fi.

Initially, some people were skeptical about its necessity. However, the sales figures quickly told a different story, with Apple selling 14.8 million units in the first year alone, signaling the start of the tablet’s influential journey.
