Apple's iPad 5 New Look
The iPad 5 is due to come out this year, inspiring curiosity as to what the new tablet from Apple will look like.
One of the more popular rumors is that the iPad 5 will have a smaller bezel on the side – making the overall size of the device smaller without reducing the size of the screen, according to MacRumors.
It’s also believed that the iPad 5 will sport the black aluminum backing featured on the iPad Mini that came out last year. Pictures, allegedly taken at a China-based accessories manufacturer and sent to 9to5mac, seem to back up this rumor.
While early speculation had the launch of the iPad 5 coming in March, it’s beginning to look more likely that it won’t hit shelves until October. It appears that Apple is gearing up to release a new fourth-generation iPad model first, which will have 128GB of on-board storage.
For those seeking a sleeker iPad rather than one with more storage capabilities, it might be worth it to hold off on upgrading until the iPhone 5 comes out. "The fifth-generation iPad will be smaller in every dimension than its predecessors," reported iLounge. "As it will have the same chamfered edges and curves, calling it a 'stretched iPad mini' is very close to entirely accurate."
