Claimed leaked 3D CAD images support reports that iPad mini 4 will be as slim as iPad Air 2 (Video)

ipad-mini-4-cad

Claimed 3D CAD images of the iPad mini 4 supports earlier reports that the upcoming device will adopt a very similar form factor to the iPad Air 2, getting the thickness down from 7.5mm to 6.1mm. A video (below) of the CAD images was posted by @onleaks, a source with a good track-record … 

The generally-reliable Ming-Chi Kuo had earlier said that the iPad mini 4 would essentially be a smaller version of the iPad Air 2, stating that it would also get updated specs. It’s been suggested that these might include the same 8MP front-facing camera and fully-laminated display with anti-glare coating as the Air 2.

@onleaks had previously posted video and photos of the casing, which did not at that stage give any indication of dimensions.

New renders tease iPad 5 in Apple Store setting ahead of Oct. 22 unveiling

ipad5main

If you’re impatiently waiting to see the new iPad 5 in the Apple Store, your wait is over – virtually, anyway. Martin Hajek has created some new renders that show the new slimmer-bezel iPad 5 in an Apple Store setting.

The iPad 5 is expected to have the same slim bezel design as the current iPad Mini, to be thinner and lighter than the current model, available in the same colors as the iPhone 5s, be powered by the same A7 chip and to have a larger-aperture 8MP rear camera. It’s not yet clear whether or not it will have a Touch ID fingerprint sensor. It is due to be announced on 22nd October.

Rest of the renders below:

High-res photos claim to show iPad 5 front panel

Sonny Dickson has posted decent-sized photos of what is claimed to be the front panel of the iPad 5.

The photos are consistent with what we’re all expecting: essentially a scaled-up iPad Mini, with thinner bezels on the sides. The refresh is also expected to use the same film-based touch panel as the Mini, replacing the glass layer in previous full-size iPads, reducing both thickness and weight. We posted photos of what is believed to be the rear casing back in January and the display panel earlier this month … 

The launch date is not yet known, but is expected in the final quarter of the year. We expect the 10th September event to be iPhone-focused, however, so suspect the iPad will be unveiled later, perhaps in October.

Is There an Updated, Faster Version of the iPad 3 Coming? [Rumors]

This is interesting. MacRumors reports that an iOS developer found a new, unknown iPad device showing up in his app analytics. Though that usually means the next version of the iPad, the unknown iPad actually had the same footprint as the current iPad 3—but with the faster processor of the iPhone 5. Hmm... More »

Where To Get the New iPad for $50 Cheaper [Ipad]

Apple is now selling refurbished current-generation iPads for as cheap as $450 for the 16GB Wi-Fi only version. If you want more storage or 3G you'll have to pay a little more. That's $50 off the price of a new one. OK, so that's not a blowout out deal, but there's no reason not to buy a refurb given that Apple guarantees you'll be satisfied—you get the exact same warranty as with a new iPad. Yup, we love Apple's refurb deals. [Apple via Cult of Mac via 9To5Mac] More »

The New iPad Launches In China Without Incident

People queue up to buy the new iPad during its China launch at the Apple store in Shanghai

Apple product launches in China traditionally draw big crowds. Thousands of prospective buyers (and scammers) usually amass outside Apple Stores, all hoping for a chance to buy the latest iDevice. This time around Apple turned to a reservation lottery system to curb some of the chaos. It seemed to work. The new iPad launched in mainland China earlier today and there was nary an uproar.

As seen in the video below filed by Reuters‘ Jon Gordon, there was hardly a crowd at Apple’s flagship Beijing location. According to other reports China’s other Apple Stores saw short lines, too. Previous Apple launches drew huge crowds with some buyers waiting 8-12 hours for the devices.

Apple utilized a reservation system for this launch, which required buyers to select a model and input their government ID to be entered into a lottery pool. Winners were then notified that they won a spot in line. This was done not only to keep the crowds to a minimum but also reduce scammers and scalpers from taking advantage of unsuspecting buyers.

China is currently Apple’s second largest market. It remains to be seen if unscrupulous importers and dealers cut into Apple’s bottom line thanks to the new iPad’s delayed launch in China.

For the foreseeable future the new iPad will only be available in mainland China through this reservation system. That said, the new iPad has been available in neighboring Hong Kong since March, which could also be one of the reasons for the low crowds. Since Hong Kong’s launch the new iPad has been readily available through importers — but of course at a price higher than the MSRP.

Target offering $25 gift card with new iPads, $20 on iPhones. Best Buy has everything Apple on sale.

We have seen a lot of third-gen iPad deals recently in 9to5Toys offering the entry-level 16GB model, for instance, in the neighborhood of $460 to $470, approximately $30 to $40 off the normal retail price. Those deals usually go quick, but one big retailer plans to offer a similar deal this coming week. Starting July 15, Target will offer a free $25 gift card with the purchase of any iPad 2 or new iPad. The deal will last all week until July 21, and, as always, Target REDCard users can get an additional 5 percent knocked off their purchase, giving the iPad 2 an effective price of $355. New iPads will start at $450 with the discounts. Find a location with stock here.

Target will advertise the deal in its flyer this weekend, we are told, which features a number of Apple products on its cover (pictured above). Other deals include the 16GB iPhone 4S discounted slightly to $179, a free $20 gift card for the 8GB iPod touch priced at $195, and a free $10 gift card for the 8GB iPod nano at $129.

Additionally, this week Best Buy knocks a few bucks off of just about every Apple product in its catalog.

With Proview Settlement Done And Dusted, Apple’s New iPad Finally Comes To China July 20

New-iPad-logo

A little over a week after finally settling its iPad legal case against Proview to the tune of $60 million, Apple today is delivering some more good iPad news in China: it’s going to start selling the new iPad on the mainland starting July 20.

The Retina-display-enhanced model will be priced starting at $499 for the 16GB model  ($629 with cellular access) (3,176 yuan), $599 ($729 with cellular access) for the 32GB device and $699 for the 64GB version  ($829 with cellular access). At the same time, it has reduced the price of the older iPad 2 to $399. These prices are in line with what Apple is charging for the tablets in the U.S. — although given that the per-capita income in China is significantly lower, that price will feel a lot higher to the average consumer.

Still, that has not deterred people from buying Apple products so far: In its last quarterly results, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook called sales of the iPhone in the country “mind boggling.” In total the company’s revenue from China in the quarter totalled $7.9 billion, a three-fold rise over the year before.

As with its previous iPad models, Apple will sell the tablets online, through authorized resellers and in its chain of Apple retail stores, with reservations for pick up beginning on July 19. It is starting its reservation system with only a three-hour window between 9am and noon every day.

Previous launches of iPad and iPhone devices in China have sparked a crazy response from enthusiastic consumers, with huge crowds and aggressive scalpers causing Apple to actually halt sales at one point when it launched the iPad 2. Since then, Apple has opened more retail locations, and will have probably set up more careful systems to try to avoid the same thing happening again.
