iPad Tech Specs: External Buttons & Controls

Share This:


As part of our iPad Basics coverage, it would be useful to lay out the tech specs of the device.  You can of course go to this Apple page to review them all, but I figured it might be useful to share them in more bit-sized chunks, as there are a lot of them.

So here are the details on the iPad’s external buttons and controls, as well as Input an output:

As you can see in the screencap above, the iPad’s external buttons / controls are the same as those on the iPhone.  That’s fine by me, I’ve never hankered after any additional buttons on my iPhone.

Here are the details for Input and output on the iPad:

  • 30-pin dock connector
  • 3.5-mm stereo headphone jack
  • Built-in speaker
  • Microphone
  • SIM card tray (Wi-Fi + 3G model only)
