There’s not a moment’s peace to be had for the Apple secrets police. After suffering through dozens of iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C leaks in the lead up to last night’s launch, we’re already getting clear-as-day alleged leaks of the new iPad 5 tablet.
And they’re from a credible source, being from the camera of serial leaker Sonny Dickson. He’s grabbed over 100 high resolution shots of what he claims is the new iPad, some of which place it side by side with an iPad 4.
Looking very similar to Dickson’s video leak from a few days back, the shots show an iPad notably smaller than the iPad 4, with a thinner edge bezel that seems inspired by the iPad mini design, while retaining the full-size iPad’s 9.7-inch screen.
With the iPhone 5S now revealed, it’ll be interesting to see which of its new features make the jump to the iPad 5. The Touch ID fingerprint scanner for instance would make a perfect fit for the tablet, though Dickson’s photos do little to suggest its inclusion.
Apple’s next big launch event is expected to be in October, which would likely be the showcase for new tablet tech. We’ll be keeping you up to speed with all the latest rumours and leaks until then, so keep checking back for more whispers.
