Purported iPad 5 Front Panel Leaked (Updated)

What you’re looking at might very well be the front-panel for the fifth generation iPad. If it is, we can see that the rumors pointing to an iPad mini-like design (note the smaller frame) seem to be correct. It’s hard to tell with the copper border around the faceplate, but it also looks like there might be less bezel between the screen and the side of the iPad.

We’ve also recently seen two alleged cases for the new iPad and what appears to be the new back panel though, again, everything is a rumor at this point and we can’t be certain of the legitimacy.

Apple publicly said that we shouldn’t expect new products until this fall, so you may have to wait a few more months if you like what you see. The company will, however, likely discuss its next generation iOS operating system during WWDC on June 10.

Update: Well, now we know why it looks so much like an iPad mini. Apparently the image above is indeed an iPad mini front frame that has been altered to suggest it’s an iPad 5.
