If you haven’t picked up the fourth generation iPad yet, I’d keep on waiting. Leaked photos of Apple’s iPad 5 have surfaced and it looks very sleek. If these photos are real, the fifth generation iPad will have the same body style as its miniature brother.
According to 9to5Mac:
While we cannot confirm that the above image is legitimate, it does provide a solid representation of what Apple’s next iPad will likely look like. We were told this is a prototype back piece for the fifth-generation iPad with a 9.7-inch display. We were also told that the casing is almost as thin as the iPad mini’s back (pictured to the right). As you can see at the top of the purported iPad 5 backplate, this casing would likely be for an LTE model – as the black antenna cut implies.
I wouldn’t doubt that Apple would continue this new design on the next full-size iPad. The entire iOS device lineup has been updated with this design. The fifth generation iPad will likely be released in the fall, but other rumors point to a spring release. Either way, I think this is the full-size iPad you’re going to want.
