Leaked Next-Gen iPad Casing Images Show "Space Gray" and Silver Options
A few high quality images purporting to show a chassis bound for Apple’s next-gen iPad hit the web recently. The images offer a peek at how the casing may look when dressed in the company’s new “Space Gray” color. The images come from the Australian blogger, Sonny Dickson, who claims the space gray and silver colored aluminum parts belong to the so-called “iPad 5,” which many industry speculators expect Apple to introduce alongside a refreshed “iPad mini 2” later this year.
The Cupertino California company first introduced the space gray color variation at the recent iPhone media event on September 10. Alongside the iPhone, the same color variation is also available as an option for the iPod touch, nano and shuffle products.
The recently allegedly leaked photos add to the growing mound of alleged next-gen iPad leaks, with the most recent being photos of a space gray “iPad mini 2” shell which was leaked last week.
For those of you who didn’t know, Apple is thought to be redesigning the 9.7-inch iPad with several design elements being taken from the current iPad mini. With the changes the device should be a little slimmer than its predecessor while boasting improved performance. The parts for both iPad models are said to be shipping to manufacturers at the end of September ahead of mass production and a fourth quarter release.
