Amidst the reports of iPhone rumors, many people might have forgotten that Apple is also expected to reveal its iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2. Even though we have spotted many other rear shells of both products in the recent past, high resolution images were missing till now. Thanks to Sonny Dickson, we now have the high resolution believable images of the upcoming iPad Mini 2.
Sonny Dickson has proved to be a reliable source as it has regularly leaked high resolution images on Apple products in the past. The site also leaked high quality images of iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S. The images leaked by Sonny Dickson shows a cellular variant of iPad Mini 2 with the top area of the shell covered in plastic in such a way so as to improve the strength of the signal.
The image of the inside of the shell also shows the SIM tray, volume buttons, power buttons, lightning dock connector and camera hole in the casing. Specification details were not revealed by Sonny. Earlier rumors suggested that iPad Mini 2 might come with a Samsung Retina display. iPad Mini 2 is expected to feature a 7.9 inch Retina display and will run on iOS 7. Apple has not officially revealed anything in this regard, but it might reveal something in its September 10 event. Earlier rumors suggest that we might see iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 sometime in October.
In a related report from Mac Rumors, iPhone 5S is expected to come with A7 processor which is said to be 31% faster than the current processor in iPhone 5 and will be a 64-bit processor. It is also expected to sport some motion tracking technology whose details and purpose is still unclear.
According to 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman:
We’ve independently heard claims that some of the iPhone 5S internal prototypes include 64-bit processors. It’s unclear if 64-bit will make the cut, but it’s been in testing. We’re told that the 64-bit processing will make animations, transparencies, and other iOS 7 graphical effects appear much more smoothly than on existing iOS Devices…
iPhone 5S is expected to feature a same design as iPhone 5, but it will have a faster processor, more RAM and is expected to run on iOS7 out of the box. Both iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C are expected to be announced at an Apple event on September 10 and could go on sale as early as on 20th of September.
