Redesigned iPad, iPhone, MacBook Pro Slated for 2012

iPhone 5 mockupBefore we head into the weekend, Buffalo, we wanted to share with you the latest iRumor coming from a “most reliable source.” Reliable sources are never wrong, right? Not that this rumor is particularly new, it at least offers up a few interesting details. According to an iLounge source, Apple plans to redesign its iPadiPhone and MacBook Pro lines in 2012. Yes, I think I’ve heard this one.

The source reveals that Apple reportedly plans on launching a slightly thicker (0.7mm) iPad come March, and that the device will incorporate a dual light bar system for its much rumored higher-resolution display. Can it be? The Cupertino-based company has already started to receive displays for its next-gen tablet, according to DigiTimes, so perhaps the puzzle pieces are falling into place.

Moving on, iLounge’s source claims the next iPhone is being readied for a Summer 2012 release, and that the device will sport a 4-inch display, aluminum casing and will be 8mm longer than its brethren. And yes, LTE is planned for the next iteration – Apple is said to be hard at work addressing poor battery life concerns that plagues the technology.

Finally, that thinner MacBook Pro rumor is back once again. The MacBook Air laptops have been a huge success for Apple, so it would hardly be a surprise if the company takes their beefier laptop line in the same direction. Will it happen? The reliable sources point to, “Yes.”

Out of the three, which would you rather see?
