Just wait for next Tuesday and you will see the smaller version of Apple’s iPad called iPad mini, some improved features about iBooks, a few fresh Mac devices and may be an updated iPad 3 as customers in UK are waiting for an iPad that supports 4G LTE technologies for them. All this can happen on October 23 and I personally think that this is enough for a single day. However, people in the rumor-mill can’t rest and we are hearing new rumors about alleged iPad 4 to be available by mid-2013.
This time, the rumor is coming from Asia suggesting that Apple has instructed its suppliers to start preparing for the fourth generation iPad as they would like to launch it in mid-2013. It is also rumored that Apple has no intentions to change the manufacturing design of iPad 4 and it will most like look like the older versions however, specifications will be improved. They might simply the design a little bit more but it is still the matter of time.
The news has been leaked by DigiTimes, which may not be considered a very reliable source but when it comes to supply chain issues, their reports often turn out to be true.
According to reports, the new iPad will have the same design, size and dimensions but the hardware model will be simplified to make it look more elegant and easy to use. Many customers are not happy with the light produced by LED chips in iPad 3 so obviously, the iPad 4 will have a sufficient amount of LED chips used in it.
