ipad-lightning-portAn alleged photo of a tweaked new iPad sporting the smaller Lightning connector has popped up online, appearing mere hours after a separate report hit 9to5Mac further corroborating an updated larger Apple tab is indeed on the way. There’s not much else to discern from the above photo, like what we can expect on the inside, though improved internals are a possibility. It’s certainly odd to see the iPad without Apple’s signature 30-pin port connector, but we’re coming upon a new dawn of proprietary Cupertino kit, and it makes sense for Apple to jump onto this now rather than waiting until next year.
