iPad 3 and 4 are thinner than the iPad 2, and that's why some cases don't work

What about the new Lightning port on the 4?  Does that case accommodate for that?

Is the width, height, depth, size same????????? or is the size a little different?

 

The physical dimensions are the same and all cases that work with the iPad '3' will also work with the iPad '4'.  The center of the Lightning port is in the same location as the 30-pin dock connector center so while the opening may be larger than necessary when a '4' is placed in a '3' case it will work fine.

The reason that some iPad 2 cases won't work with iPad '3/iPad '4' and some do is two-fold.  First, the iPad '3'/'4' is a bit thicker which may cause a tighter than optimum fit--depending upon the case style.  Stretchable cases won't be much of a problem, hard shell cases could be.

 

The second reason is because the iPad 2 only has a position requirement for the magnets to engage the on/off function, it does not also have a polarity requirement for the magnets as does the iPad '3'/'4'.  If the polarity randomly happens to be a match it will work.  If not it won't.

 

So to sum it up, if it is advertised to work with the iPad '3' or '4' it will work with the iPad 2 though the fit might be a little bit loose with some case styles.  If it was built expressly for the iPad 2 it may or may not function fully with the iPad '3'/'4'.

Currently, any iPad 2/3 case that fits an iPad 3 will fit an iPad 4 (not every iPad 2 case will fit iPad 3/4).

 

The lightning port is much smaller than the 30 pin, so there ought not to be a problem. My iPad 3 case fits my iPad 4 just fine (Choix Coolermaster, best case I've ever used), and the extended bottom opening just exposes slightly more of the iPad's bottom.
