Well-known Apple supply chain insider Sonny Dickson is once again back at his game, and this time, rather than leaking more iPhone 5C or iPhone 5S parts, Dickson has posted some fairly convincing high-quality pictures of what seems to be the front panel of the upcoming 5th-gen iPad.
The photos show more or less exactly what we expect to see after months of rumors and various reports. Assuming that the parts are authentic – and there’s no real reason to be suspicious that they are not, the 5th-gen iPad will essentially resemble a larger version of the iPad mini, with slimmer side bezels. The device will also likely be significantly slimmer and lighter than the previous two generations of the iPad.
Even better, the images light up with previous leaked components (including a rear shell that leaked clear back in January), further adding to their legitimacy. Every indication and reputable report this far have affirmed that a thinner, lighter 5th-gen iPad will be here sooner rather than later. The only question that remains is: Are you ready?
