Purported images of next-gen iPad shell leak out
Frequent Apple leaker Sonny Dickson posts photos of what he says are parts for Apple's fifth-generation tablet.
Just days before the expected launch of two much-anticipated iPhones on Tuesday, more images have emerged of what's purported to be Apple's next-generation iPad.
Sonny Dickson, who is a frequent leaker of all things Apple, on Sunday posted an extensive gallery of alleged fifth-generation iPad parts, including an assembled shell that appears identical to previous image leaks. If legitimate, the photos appear to buttress previous and rumors that the iPad 5 will take many of its design cues from the iPad Mini, with a thinner profile and more rounded edges and corners.
Previous purported leaks from Dickson included images of whatof the iPad 5.
While Apple has planned a media event for Tuesday at which many expect new iPhones to be unveiled, company observers don't expect a new iPad 5 or iPad Mini to be announced at the event. "It contradicts everything we've heard thus far about Apple's fall iOS Device launch plans from our sources," 9to5Mac noted.
