Rumors have been floating around lately that Apple is planning on remodeling the iPad to be lighter and thinner than its predecessors. Japanese language blog Macotakara is also predicting a March 2013 launch dated, making the fifth-generation iPad the fastest Apple device remodel of all time.
If the rumors are true, Apple will release the fifth-generation iPad within six months of the release of the previous model. So far, the fourth-generation iPad was the fastest remodel due to Apple launching the updated device only eight months after its predecessor. From Macotakara:
“According to my inside source, iPad(5th) may be released in March, 2013. Source said the design of this new iPad will be like the iPad Mini in detail, and be thinner and lightweight.”
