    Rumor: New iPad 5 Arriving In March 2013

    Rumor: Apple readying minor revisions to new iPad battery, lens







    An unverified report out of the Far East claims Apple is planning to make "small revisions" to its third-generation iPad, such as an enlarged lens hole and changes to the battery to keep the device from overheating, later this year.

    Supply chain sources have indicated to DigiTimes that Apple will likely release the updated iPad "around the holiday season."

    "The sources said the new iPad's battery is being revised, which will help prevent overheating issues and could possibly make the device slightly lighter and thinner than previously designed," the report noted.

    No reason was given as to what Apple hoped to accomplish by enlarging the iPad's lens hole. The third-generation tablet, which was released in March, features a 5-megapixel rear camera and a front camera capable of VGA-quality photos.

    DigiTimes has a mixed track record and has been criticized for its willingness to report even the most speculative rumors from its sources. The publication did, however, correctly predict the Retina Display on both the new iPad and the new MacBook Pro.

    Given that the report remains unverified, AppleInsider is unable to vouch for the veracity of the rumor and is covering it here simply for the sake of discussion.

    Apple's new iPad took some heat from product reviewer Consumer Reports shortly after release because it felt "very warm" while running a game. Separate tests also showed the device ran hotter than the second-generation iPad, though one report noted that the tablet was not much hotter than Android tablets or notebook computers.

    For its part, Apple dismissed the concerns by stating that the new iPad operates "well within our thermal specifications."

    iPad Mini Will Be Officially Announced October 17th [Rumor]


    Apple is bound to make an iPad Mini someday soon, and for the last few months the rumors have been saying they’ll be announcing it in October. According to Fortune, Apple is set to mail out iPad Mini invitations on October 10th, which might suggest the actual keynote will be held on October 17th.

    Invitations for the iPhone 5 keynote were sent out 8 days before the keynote, so Apple may not hold the keynote until October 18th, with the launch following a week or two after that.

    We believe that iPad Mini pre-orders will follow the same path as the iPad 3 and 2, and the pre-order page will go up immediately after the event, placing the launch date as October 26th. However, Fortune estimates that the iPad Mini won’t go on sale until Friday, November 2nd. Guess we’ll have to wait and see how everything shakes out, but it looks like we might finally get a smaller iPad.

    I want it golden yellow like the new iPod Touch. :laugh:

    Btw, I wish they change the design a little. I'm tired of the fact that all the iOS devices look alike...
    Nor white, nor black. Just the passionate shades between...

    Apple will make it a mini size iPad, just like these words, a mini model of iPad, so appearance changing is impossible.

    Still waiting on this one! I'm pumped. Every device I own is Apple. Any new updates on a release date rumor for the iPad mini?

    iPad Mini, 13-Inch Retina MacBook Pro Both Delayed By Production Problems [Rumor]


    It seems right now like Apple has a lot of prospective new products on the horizon. The 7.85-inch iPad mini. The 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro. Updated iMacs. Yet despite the fact that all of these products have been highly rumored to debut this month in time of a busy holiday season, we’ve yet to see any of them. Now one report is suggesting a reason why: Apple’s having production problems on both the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro and iPad mini.

    The claim comes from DigiTimes, an extremely hit-or-miss purveyor of rumors sketchily sourced from the Far East supply chain, who says that Foxconn and Pegatron can’t get suitable yelds for the display and chassis of the iPad mini.

    The sources pointed out that although the iPad Mini’s chassis adopts a similar material as the 9.7-inch model, the iPad Mini’s design and tactile feel will be different from those of the larger model.

    In addition, DigiTimes claims that the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display is having similar production problems, having delayed the product’s launch a month already, with more delays possible.

    DigiTimes has previously reported on the rumor of low iPad mini yield rates, but this is the first time they have claimed that the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro is having similar issues.

    In a way, it makes sense. Apple’s products have become increasingly complex to design, with the iPhone 5 being so difficult to build that Apple has actually had to knock off production rates to keep quality assurance high. As these devices become designed to ever-increasing degrees of sophistication and precision, it’s going to take a lot longer to satisfy Apple’s standards, let alone the inevitable onslaught of consumer demand.
