CUPERTINO - (AP) - Apple is revealing a new iPad model. New features include a sharper screen and a faster processor.

It will go on sale March 16.

Prices aren't changing from previous models. They will start at $499. Versions capable of accessing cellular networks will cost $629 to $829. For the first time, the iPad will be able to access the faster 4G cellular networks.
