Thanks.

 

One more thing: Does the video quality in this update just changed on the front-facing camera or also on the back-facing camera?

The video quality should work on both, front-facing and on back-facing camera.

The Ipad 3 has a Retina dispay. Is it's resolution still not enough?

 I hate to go on about this but it looks like the display or resolution is not why the Ipad 3 can't run HD but because the Ipad 4 has a better front camera. 

"iPad 3 vs iPad 4: screen and everything else

One thing that hasn't changed is the Retina screen. The fourth-gen iPad sticks with the same 2048 x 1536 resolution, LED-backlit IPS screen."

It looks like it is not resolution or Retrina it is in fact that the Ipad 4 has a better front camera. as below.

 

"The front camera is now a 'FaceTime HD' part, with support for up to 720p video and 1.2Mp photos. This suggests it's the same as the iPhone 5's camera. It's a big step up from the iPad 3's VGA camera, and useful for taking the odd self portrait, as well as providing the person at the other end of your FaceTime or Skype call with better quality video."
