Apple Typo Touts Implausibly Thin iPad 4

When it comes to gadgets, we all know that thin is in, but this is just ridiculous.

According to Apple's website, the latest version of the regular-sized iPad, unveiled in October, measures a wispy 0.37 millimeters. That's approximately a quarter of the thickness of a U.S. penny, or three pieces of paper stacked on top of one another. But if you've ever seen a fourth-generation iPad, you know for a fact the device is thicker than the spec printed on Apple's site. Woops!

It seems Apple has let a typo slip through onto at least one part of its website, as pointed out by an eagle-eyed user on Reddit.

The iPad is actually 0.37 inches thick (or 9.4 millimeters). For the sake of comparison, the iPad mini, with a depth of 0.28 inch, is the thinnest tablet Apple makes.

We've captured an image of the typo below, since Apple will surely get around to correcting it soon. At the time of writing, the goof was still visible on the "iPad Design" overview page.
