What The Next iPad Might Look Like (If It Looks Like The iPad Mini)

Unsurprising reports about what the next iPad will look like have been coming out, parts showing off an iPad Mini-esque casing for the bigger iPad have been leaked and well, I'm no maths expert but one plus one usually equals two. If you want to get an idea of what the next iPad might, maybe, possibly, no guarantees here! will look like, we've got you covered.

Gizmodo friend and wildly talented Martin Hajek whipped up a few excellent 3D renders showcasing the purported next iPad (or at least what's being rumoured about the purported next iPad) against the iPad Mini and the current iPad. It's actually a really great look. You can see the bezel is thinner, which gives the iPad a slimmer feel, and that the back is black, just like the leaked backing we saw yesterday. If the next iPad looks just like this, I won't have much complaints (especially if it's significantly lighter). It'll be determined how the thinner bezel will effect holding the iPad.

But take a look at the 3D renders below from Martin and see more of his fantastic 3D work in full detail here.



    Apple: Same shit different year. I can tell you with full confidence that this iPad will ship with a slightly fast processor and iOS 7, it'll cost much more than the competition and yet still be inferior, and that mactards all around the globe will flock to enjoy their new piece of shiny iShit

    It might look like every other apple device

    Not sure if its only me... but isn't it a little to early for a new iPad?

      Given the 3 lasted 7 months before it was dropped, I'd say 7 is the new 12.

        The iPad 4 was a bit early I agree, but I reckon that was just because they wanted to speed up the adoption of the lightning connector - i.e. they don't want to be selling a product with a connector that's about to be phased out.

      Based on the fact that is was only 7 months between the release of the 3rd gen and the 4th gen iPad's, Apple could easily pump one out in the next few months.

    I don't think they'll reduce the side bezel on the full size iPad. You need that space on the larger one because you can't hold it in one hand. I don't think they can use the side rejection they have on the mini as well on the larger device.

    Then again I don't work at Apple.

      They could reduce the bezel to zero if they put a handle on the back of it. Apple could buy out one of those losers from the Vegas show, make it in graphene, patent it, say they got the idea from some recently discovered memoirs of Jobs, and then they'll again be seen by the world leaders in the field.

    When did Apple become the most boring design company ever?
    They're still excellent products though, don't get me wrong.
