Apple iPad case manufacturer expects 5th-generation slate to be unveiled next week
U.S. accessory manufacturer Hard Candy Cases has already introduced two cases for the fifth-generation Apple iPad. The company says that it expects to see the tablet unveiled during the keynote speech during the June 10th opening of the annual WWDC developer conference. The two cases are called the ShockDrop and the Squish which can be pre-ordered at $35 and $50 respectively.

The cases do appear to match what is expected from the next 9.7 inch Apple slate including thinner bezels, but there is a question as to the timing of the tablet's introduction. Other reports say that the fifth-generation iPad will start mass production this month or next, and be introduced in September. Next week, we expect that the WWDC buzz will be all about the redesigned UI of iOS 7.

Both cases ship on June 12th. The ShockDrop is available in black or black/red while the Squish is available in black, pink, lime or blue. Hard Candy Cases says that it is confident that the cases will fit, but if they don't, they will be replaced by ones that do.

because iOS does not need so much perfomance has android.

if you see the iPad 4 can run the games much smother than nexus 7 and Nexus 10.

De best apple Ipad to own is the Ipad 3. You don't have to worry if Apple releases Ipad 5 or 7? The screen will still be the same. It won't feel very much faster than your Ipad 3 plus you will get ios7 in less than a week. Lol
That's one beauty about apple but I still love my note2.lol

Respectively would mean the ShockDrop is $35 and the Squish is $50 but the pictures show it's the opposite.

If it has the styling of the mini, which is by far the best looking tablet I've ever seen, it's a no brainer. With the apps, business support, and overall Eco system the iPad is about the best there is.
