Just recently, we reported that a 128GB version of the iPad may be coming. We guess that the 5th-gen Apple iPad is just around the corner as the back plate leaks – and from it we can get an idea of what it will look like.
It shouldn’t be a surprise to most people that Apple will be using its new-found color scheme, seen in the iPhone 5 and the iPad Mini. The photos suggest that the next gen iPad will look very similar to its smaller sibling. This includes the color, the thickness & the less tapered edges. The leak also includes the space for where the radios should be, which will definitely mean 4G capabilities.
Again, we played around with the aspect ratios and made size comparisons which led us to a conclusion that these images, if real, show that the next iPad will be at least 13.26% narrower & 3.5% shorter. If so, then that means the rumors of an iPad with less bezels are true. We did a render of what it may look like and it ended up looking just like an iPad Mini.
