It looks like the release date of the highly anticipated iPad 5 is in November 2013 as new photos hint colorful tablets and many specs and features.
According to Forbes.com, Apple will announce the iPad 5, along with the iPad Mini 2 at "an event held on Oct. 22, which would mean the release date for both tablets would land on Nov. 1."
Lewis Hilsenteger of Unbox Therapy leaked a set of iPad Smart Covers that hint that the iPad 5 will be narrower than its predecessors. Along with the current red, pink, blue, green and light grey colors, the new collection will include true black, white, and orange.
Sonny Dickson, who posted accurate photos of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, revealed pictures of backplates that the iPad 5 will likely come in on his website: silver/white and space grey/back combinations, similar to the iPhone 5S.
Check out a video by Hilsenteger, which suggest that the iPad 5 will be thinner and narrower.
According to ExpertReviews.co.uk, the iPad 5 will have the same 9.7-inch screen size as the iPad 4, and will have Retina display. It will now use a GF2 touchscreen, which is the "same technology as used in the iPad Mini, and is 20 per cent thinner than the existing screen. With the new iPad likely to be as thin as 7.2mm, as reported by 9to5Mac, the new screen technology would make sense."
The iPad 5 may also have the Touch ID fingerprint scanner in the Home button, just like the new iPhone 5S.
Check out these LEAKED PHOTOS that hint that iPad 5 will have narrower bezels and be a lot thinner in general.
There may also be a 12-inch iPad in the works because MacRumors.com reported that Quanta Computer, the current supplier of MacBook Airs, is looking to bring in this new device.
The iPad 5 is said to have major upgrades, including a 8MP rear-facing lens, and even the possibility of a 12MP camera being added. IBTimes said that the 10-inch iPad 5 "will pack a 64-bit A7 processor and M7 GPU chip; fingerprint sensor; support for 4G/LTE connection; 5MP rear shooter and internal storage up to 128GB."© 2013 Fashion & Style.com All rights reserved.
