If rumours are anything to go by, Apple is to release iPad 5 in March, exactly a year after iPad 3 and six months after iPad 4. That will be three releases of iPads in a year. Apple is as usual keeping quiet.
All ideas about the new iPad are speculation as Apple tends not to reveal till the launch. It is expected that this will be an upgrade to the last iPad 4 which came with an A6 processor.The iPad is expected to have a black cover with curved corners. The screen display will almost cover the entire body leaving space to accommodate the camera and button.
The new ipad will have a power saving screen which has the Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide (IGZO) technology. The main feature of IGZO is that it takes 90 % less power. This slim screen will be responsible for the 7.2 mm thinness of the new tablet.The ipad 5 will have a bigger storage space at 128 GB for more files, photos and videos. This will make the tablet versatile.
The ipad 5 is likely to stick to a display screen of 9.7 inches. This screen with a retina display is likely to continue with a resolution of 2,048×1,536 which is somewhat less than Nexus 10. Apple will need to go in for a wider screen if it plans to have more pixels within the same resolution.The iPad 5 may have an antenna which indicates that it will have connectivity of 4G. This iPad is going to be lighter thanks to the Led back lighting system.
For all those who are expecting this iPad to be released next month may be in for a disappointment. It might get delayed by another six months. Let’s wait and watch.
