    Default Purported Fifth-Gen iPad Shell Supports Previous Rumors


    There have been multiple rumors pointing towards Apple’s fifth-generation iPad being in development with a design similar to that of the current iPad mini. The folks over at 9to5Mac recently received unverified images from a purported China-based iPad accessories maker, showing off the back plate of the supposed new iPad. Based on what is being said in the industry, the pictures seem to check out as the back piece for the fifth-generation iPad mimics that of the iPad mini very closely in terms of design cues.

    The design cues include the iPad mini-esque bezels and chamfered edges and curves. The folks at 9to5Mac had the following to say about the whole ordeal:

    What does it look like? Well, it’s a lot smaller than one would guess was possible: in portrait orientation, picture a 9.7” screen with virtually no left or right bezels, and only enough space above and below the screen to accommodate the mandatory camera and Home Button elements. Beyond that, it’s noticeably thinner, as well, which is to say the the fifth-generation iPad will be smaller in every dimension than its predecessors. As it will have the same chamfered edges and curves, calling it a “stretched iPad mini” is very close to entirely accurate.


    More and more parts for upcoming Apple products seem to be leaked nowadays, which makes sense as its more of a common occurrence as the Asian supply chain grows larger. Whether or not the images are providing valid information is something we’ll find out in time.

    I'm so tired of apple pooping out products every couple of months. Why can they not put a crap load of thought into one epic and amazing product that will be 1000x different from the last update? My iPad mini that I bought the day it came out will be so outdated within no time whatsoever.

    Can we get rid of the "side bezels" and have a narrow ipad like the ipad mini? The touch, or hold recognition software works so well on my ipad mini I don't see why it can't be used on the normal ipad and reduce the size making it easier to hold, use and even lighter??

    But tim cook said the reason they took the sides off the iPad mini was because you can hold the device in one hand. iPad 4 you can not

    Just because its not the newest product doesn't make it outdated. My iPad 3 is running great and I have no intention to upgrade in the near future and same goes for my 2007 iMac. Maybe that's why growth is slowing. Their products last too long!

    It comes down to competition. If Apple releases once a year then they are ahead of the competition for a short period and then the competition catches up or passes them in specs. So Apple wants to make sure they are still at the top of the relevant lists when it comes to specs so that they are not painted as the "old" product even though old may equate to a few months. You should buy a product for how it matches your current needs and not worry that the next product out will obsolete the one you just bought. If it still meets your needs then you are still ahead of the game.

    So, back to the general look/shape of iPad 1? Only thinner, faster, lighter? Oh, and safe, reliable and boring like a Toyota Camry. The more things change, the more they stay the same and, OH WHO AM I KIDDING, iPad 5, 128gb, WiFi in black, the minute its available. Darn you Apple, you tech crack dealers. Sayin...

    Didn't I see you posting on Nissan's forums too?
    "Why do you have to make a new Nissan Maxima every year? My Maxima I bought the day it came out will be so outdated within no time whatsoever."

    but when they release they're still behind in technology. i used to like apple products until they stopped advancing in technology. ever since the iphone 4 apple products have been the same. there aren't any new capabilities that you can't get with an update. you can't really feel the speed difference unless you jailbreak.

    I hope I can get one with that HIGH SPEED TAPE on the top holding it together...
