MacRumors reports on some new pictures that have appeared on the web of what is claimed to be cases for the next iPad, which they are calling “iPad 5”. One set of images comes via Tactus, and shows both the current iPad and the iPad 5, as well as a plastic dummy version of the iPad 5 displayed for the purpose of showing how it is similar in design in some respects to the iPad mini. Engadget also featured some other photos that emerged in Hong Kong, which very neatly show a blue iPad 5 case on top of a gray iPad 4 case, making it clear how much smaller the next iPad will be in comparison to the current iPad. As MacRumors notes, there’s no way of knowing whether or not either or both of these cases are genuine, but going by past experience, and recent rumour and speculation about the next iPad being more like the iPad mini, they may well be the real deal.
