Leaked iPad 5 Compared to iPad 4 in New Photos

We’ve seen our fair share of leaked iPad 5 photos in the past month or so, but now the upcoming Apple tablet has shown up in a new batch of photos comparing the device to the current iPad 4. The pictures, which come from Australian leaker Sonny Dickson, match up with earlier leaks, but show the iOS slate in the highest detail yet.

The display and height for the iPad 5 will stay the same as Apple’s current model, while the new tablet’s side bezels are noticeably thinner. The headphone jack hasn’t moved, and neither have the new iPad’s physical controls, though the power button looks somewhat smaller. The redesigned tablet is also noticeably thinner that the iPad 4, and likely weighs less as well.

A handful of Dickson’s new photos also appear to show a fully functional iPad 5 running iOS 7 while sitting on top of the iPad 4. However, what we’re actually seeing is the new tablet’s front panel placed on top of a powered-on iPad 4 to demonstrate the two identical displays.

Apple is expected to unveil the iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 with Retina Display next month, though invites for any event still have yet to be sent out, and is set to announce two new additions to its line of smartphones at a special event scheduled to take place tomorrowTechnoBuffalo will be bringing you coverage of the announcement, but we don’t expect to hear anything about the new tablets until October at the earliest.
