The end of last week saw the leaking of several different parts that were all said to come from Apple’s forthcoming iPad 3. Now, 9to5 Mac reports, parts reseller Eye Lab Factory has put all of the leaked parts together and found that they all fit. Apparently, the 2,048x1,536-pixel display, which is made by Sharp, fits perfectly into the back plate’s screw holes, which leads Eye Lab Factory to conclude that the Sharp display is, in fact, intended to fit said back plate. Apparently the display’s cable folds and fits the base plate perfectly as well. And, as you might have guessed by now, it turns out that the third part that was also allegedly leaked last week, a dock connector, also fits the base plate, which is apparently slightly thicker than that of the iPad 2. Looking more and more like those parts are genuinely from Apple’s next iPad.
