Video Shows iPad 5 With Translucent Apple Logo, Thinner Bezels?

Posted by · 19841 views · Translate
A video has been posted on YouTube by Japanese blog Mac Otakara that allegedly shows a next generation iPad with a translucent Apple logo and thinner bezels.

The device seen in the clip has no internals. It's just the back cover and the front glass assembled together. While the thinner side bezels are in line with the expected design for the iPad 5, the translucent logo seems unlikely. Recent leaks of the back cover for the next generation iPads have shown a logo that is its own mold implemented into the rear housing but not translucent. Also, AppleInsider notes that this feature would be difficult to implement.

Such a feature would be difficult to implement, however, as adhesive is used to secure the tablet's large battery pack to the interior shell wall, a design that covers the Apple logo in both the fourth-generation iPad and iPad mini. In theory, a light pipe or some other mode of light transport could supply adequate illumination, but the added build and parts costs may be prohibitive.

Check out the video below and let us know what you think!

Adding a translucent LED back light wouldn't be hard to implement. It would be similar to the iPhone 4/4S backlight mod where you connect two wires to certain areas of the logic board that connect to a small LED. The clear apple logo allows the light to display out. You could do the same for any iPad model. It would be much more difficult though as you would need to cut out the apple logo from the housing and then figure out where to connect the wires. Nothing is impossible, only lazy people not willing to figure these things out say anything is impossible. This feature may or may not be in the iPad 5 but I can 100% guarantee you apple is testing this and some asshole that works for apple has an iPad he/she is currently using.

Recent leaks of the back cover for the next generation iPads *did* have translucent logo (at the post mentioned). So it seems to be more and more likely.

Google Denis Simachev iPad or iPhone and you will see that they`ve already made such illumination for the last at least 4years. I think it`s awesome to have such illumination without paying for it extra 300usd.
