Is This The iPad 5's Cover Glass Surface?
Surfacing on the web today are new images of what is purportedly the top cover glass of Apple's next generation tablet, the iPad 5.
French blog Nowhereelse.fr was the first to obtain and publish what looks to be the front glass and bezel assembly for Apple's iPad 5. If the images are accurate, it suggests a noticeable physical redesign of the popular Apple tablet.
Although the authenticity of what you're looking at can't be promised, the appearance of a thinner bezel is consistent with earlier reports hinting that the next-generation iPad will be smaller despite the unchanged 9.7-inch display size.
The French blog refers to this photo as "the first concrete evidence that the production of the iPad 5 actually launched."
Just yesterday, however, Digitimes reported
that the iPad 5 would not enter production until after the iPhone 5S launch in June or July. This is said to be Apple's strategy for helping to avoid overwhelming the supply and manufacturing chains responsible for churning out these devices.
