Is This the Rear Shell of the iPad 5? [PIC]


Over the past few months, multiple sources have reported that Apple’s next-generation iPad will have a design similar to the successful iPad mini. After last week’s image leak of the iPad 5 mould, Tactus has come back with more juicy information, what they claim to be an image of the iPad 5 rear shell and alleged tech specs.


The image seems be in line with what 9to5mac obtained back in January, and as you can see from the above image, it shows for the first time a full view of the entire rear shell’s interior.

Although the blog goes on and speculates that the iPad 5 will sport an A7 chip, and that Apple will use an IGZO display with their retina resolution screen, which will contribute to a much thinner and lighter design consuming less power, we are kind of skeptical about this at the moment. Tactus even mentions a camera upgrade to a 8 MP rear-facing camera.


To stick with image leaks, the Japanese part shop Moumantai has leaked fresh images of the iPhone 5S nano-SIM tray. As you can see from the above image, the part seems to be identical with the one used in the iPhone 5.


  • Considering all the iPad 5 case leaks we’ve seen so far;

    1. I wouldn’t be surprised if that is the rear shell
    2. I wouldn’t be surprised if the iPad 5 debuts in June @ WWDC.
