iPad 5 to be released in March and set to be thinner and lighter
The iPad 5 will take influences from the iPad Mini and will be announced in March
The iPad 5 will be announced in March acording to sources and will be smaller and lighter than the iPad 4.
According to macotakara.jp, the new iPad will be 4mm shorter than the iPad 4, 17mm smaller in width and 2mm thinner. These are rough translations of the Japanese website by 9to5Mac, which also says, 'According to my inside source, iPad(5th) may be released in March, 2013. Source told that, design of this new iPad will be like iPad mini in detail, and be thinner and lightweight.'
The report also says Apple is working on an iPad Mini 2 which will include a Retina Display - specs we were already aware of.
An announcement in March is maybe a little earlier than we were expecting, especially after the recent iPad Mini and iPad 4 announcement.
