Schematics for Apple iPad 5 leak and reveal that the tablet will borrow its looks from the Apple iPa
Schematics have leaked for the fifth-generation Apple iPad and reveal that the next iteration of Apple's full-sized tablet will be taking much of its design from the Apple iPad mini. The edges of the next iPad match those of Apple's 7.9 inch slate and will be less tall and less wide than the current 9.7 inch model. It would also be about three-quarters as thick as the fourth-gen model. According to the leaked schematics, the 5th-generation iPad comes in at 232mm long, 178.5mm wide and 7.9mm thick, although when the glass is added to the frame, it will add a few mm to the dimensions.

The leak of the schematics, from a source that has been characterized as being reliable in the past, dovetails perfectly with earlier leaks of the tablet. Industry sources have said to expect the next full-sized iPad to resemble the iPad mini and be lighter and thinner. Last month, a picture of the slab's front panel was leaked confirming talk about the narrower bezel, another trait found on the mini.

The fifth-generation iPad is expected by the source to be launched sometime between mid-September and the end of October, and will come to market at the same time as another Apple iPod and/or an new Apple iPod touch.
