Federico Ciccarese works up some concept imagery based on the latest leaks
An Italian graphic designer who has previously released accurate mockups of unconfirmed Apple devices is outdoing himself with some concept imagery featuring the upcoming fifth-generation iPad.Reported hardware leaks have revealed that Apple is applying the design of the iPad mini to its full-size iPads starting with the upcoming iPad 5. Both the fifth-generation (9.7-inch) iPad and the second-generation (7.9-inch) iPad mini are slated for October, pundits say.
The very first (potentially) accurate images of the iPad 5 are now available courtesy of Federico Ciccarese and MacRumors. Pictured above is a mockup of the upcoming tablet computer (left) next to the existing iPad mini.
Apple is said to be narrowing down the screen bezel, while also making the device thinner and a lot lighter. More photos, showing a comparison with the existing line of iDevices from Apple, can be found below.
