New images have surfaced on 9to5Mac that hint the development of Apple’s iPad 5.
Obtained from an iPad accessories maker in China, the images show a prototype back piece for the fifth-generation iPad with a 9.7-inch display.
The back piece has a black & slate design and has been reported to be as thin as the iPad Mini.
“While we cannot confirm that the above image is legitimate, it does provide a solid representation of Apple’s next iPad will likely look like,” wrote 9to5Mac.
The site also said that the iPad 5 was originally rumored to be launched in March 2013, but recent reports have suggested that the next-generation iPad will only be launched in October.
Apple is also rumored to be launching a new 128GB version of the iPad 4.
