Here comes another storm of iPad rumors. It appears that iPad 5 cases with a mini-inspired design are beginning to hit Chinese websites. They’re even available for order. I wouldn’t doubt that Apple has plans to give the iPad 5 a new design, but aren’t we jumping the gun a bit here?
All of the cases contain holes in the bottom edge designed to accommodate a Lightning connector and speaker grilles on either side of the connector, as seen on the iPad mini. The current full-size iPad design contains a single speaker grille on wrapping from the bottom edge around to the back side of the device.
If you’re interested in ordering one of these cases, you can do so by clicking here and here. I’d order with caution though. Don’t expect to receive anything soon and don’t count on this case fitting your iPad 5 perfectly when it’s released later this year.
