Leaked Photo of the Upcoming iPad 5's Back Plate?

A leaked image claims to show the back plate for the iPad 5. The image was sent to 9to5Mac by a purported China-based accessory maker.

While we cannot confirm that the above image is legitimate, it does provide a solid representation of what Apple’s next iPad will likely look like. We were told this is a prototype back piece for the fifth-generation iPad with a 9.7-inch display. We were also told that the casing is almost as thin as the iPad mini’s back (pictured to the right). As you can see at the top of the purported iPad 5 backplate, this casing would likely be for an LTE model – as the black antenna cut implies…

The leak falls in line with a recent report that Apple is working on an iPad 5 with a similar design to the iPad mini for release in October.

I use iPhone from first generation to its 5th one and I'm still using iphone but few days back I spent two hours playing with samsung galaxy noteII and I loved it. its more fun to use it than iPhone to be honest. I think apple need major changes to its smart phone. its good to expand app store and its app but they need to look at their customer demands from smart phone which is changing as mine already did.

That, my friend, would be called a new SIZE, not a new design. A new design would be round with square corners ;)

I'm so happy that by the time my iPhone 5 arrived in the mail i heard so many bad stuff about it that i did the hardest thing ever, never opened it and sold it for almost double the price. i have no idea how you guys handled an un jailbroken boring Apple device for half its life time, no wonder that Apple lost so many customers to samsung, now that there is a new jail breaking team i'll buy the next iPhone and iPad as soon as they come out! i really feel for you guys and hope the jailbreak will be released soon! Myself i still don't know if i should upgrade my 5.1.1 iphone 4S and ipad 3 because i don't see anything spacial enough to upgrade to 6.1 and Apple probably will come out with 6.1.1 to block the jailbreak and then restoring back to 6.1.0 will be a problem because apple made things really hard on ios 6, right now every time i have a problem because of installing hacks that dont behave good together redsn0w let 5.1.1 restore back but not if u upgraded to ios 6, so i got to have a chat with Pod2G ask him if its worth upgrading also most hacks dont work on ios 6 ( yet anyway) problems problems problems ( lol ) here is another problem sinse installuos went out of buisness there is no Appsync for iOS 6 and i got hundreds of cracked Apps on itunes. what to do???????? Well still got some time till the jailbreak be out, time to think about it........
