More images of the purported fifth generation iPad and iPad mini 2 were leaked by C Tech. The new images show the front of both iPads, revealing more interesting information in the process.
The photo of the alleged iPad mini2 shows that the tablet will feature the same design of its predecessor. In an earlier report, we highlighted that the thickness of the iPad mini 2 has been reduced from 7.2 mm to 6.81 mm. However, this new photo suggests that the iPad mini 2 will not support Apple’s latest Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
The image of the fifth generation iPad indicates that it has adopted the long rumored iPad mini design. And in this case, there appears to be a Touch ID fingerprint sensor in the Home Button.
In other news, the same blog posted more photos of the purported fifth generation iPad. This time the thickness of the iPad 5 was measured to be 7.35mm compared to the 9.4mm of third and fourth generation iPad.
Apple is widely expected to unveil their next generation iPads at a special event on October 22.
