Apple’s forthcoming 5th gen. iPad rear case design reportedly leaks (with photo)

“Over the past few months, multiple rumors have pointed to Apple’s fifth-generation iPad being in development with a design akin to the recently launched iPad mini,” 9to5Mac reports. “That design would likely feature the black & slate/white & silver design language, thinner casing, chamfered edges, and a smaller overall footprint.”

9to5Mac reports, “Today, we received an unverified image from a purported China-based iPad accessories maker, an industry that seems to frequently tip off Apple’s future product designs, of the back plate for the next iPad… We were told this is a prototype back piece for the fifth-generation iPad with a 9.7-inch display. We were also told that the casing is almost as thin as the iPad mini’s back.”
