Gold-colored iPad 5 SIM trays leaked online today after being spotted at a repair shop ahead of the device’s official launch. The new photos appear to suggest that Apple’s fifth generation tablet will come in the same three colors as the iPhone 5s: Gold, Silver and Space Grey.
The iPad 5 is expected to feature a slimmer design similar to the iPad Mini, with sharper edges and a thinner bezel. The 9.7-inch tablet will also likely sport Apple’s new A7 processor, but otherwise offer the same specs and button layout. We don’t expect an improved display or camera, though Apple did offer some incremental updates to its smartphone lens with the iPhone 5s.
Apple is expected to unveil the iPad 5 alongside the iPad Mini 2 at a special event most likely taking place next month in California. The second generation 7.9-inch tablet is rumored to include a Retina Display screen and the same A7 processor introduced in the iPhone 5s. Apple may also touch on OS X Mavericks and maybe even a new iPod during its upcoming presentation. Stay tuned.
