A designer named Martin uit Ultrecht recently took to the drawing board to create concept mock-ups of what the fifth generation iPad might look like. Obviously these are the creations of one person, not an Apple employee, but we do love seeing what the human imagination can come up with. Ultrecht didn’t go into the design blind, however: he built the mock-ups based on rumors that the “design language of the iPad mini” will be carried into the iPad 5.
In other words, it basically looks like a bigger version of the iPad mini, and a skinnier version of the fourth generation iPad. “The 3D model was based on the accurate model which I made of the iPad mini but keeping the same display size of the large iPad.”
The product looks pretty amazing to us, although we hope Apple tosses a few design surprises into its next-gen iPad.
