The 5th-generation iPad is rumored to be lighter and smaller sized than its predecessor, and it’ll include a thinner bezel like the iPad mini, if any of the formerly leaked images can be trusted.
The iPad mini 2 should likewise get a bump in specifications and get its first Retina screen. Apple fans who’re still wishing for a more cost effective iPad mini model need to prepare themselves to be disappointed. Apple showed its disinterest in producing ‘low-cost’ devices with the launch of the iPhone 5c.
It’s also unidentified if the new iPad lineup will be as colorful as the new iPhone lineup, but that did not stop Apple concept artist, Martin Hajek from developing pictures of a gold iPad mini and space gray iPad 5. You can see his mockup image posted above, and his complete gallery here.
Apple is also expected to announce numerous brand-new Macs, OS X Mavericks, and an upgrade to Apple TV sometime prior to completion of this year.
