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.
