There’s a fresh leak in town showing us the iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 yet again, in a bunch of very convincing shots. As usual, the images come from China and it’s interesting to notice that the iPad Mini 2 doesn’t get the fingerprint Touch ID tech.


The iPad 5 totally gets it and we’ve got a new screen tech inside the device, making it thinner and lighter than the current models. We’re also seeing a new ribbon cable leaked, yet another reason to see the Touch ID as confirmed. October 22nd is the date when Apple will make the big unveiling related to the new tablets and possibly new iMacs and MacBooks.

The iPad 5’s LCD display package has also leaked out and this may just be the first time we’re seeing it live. The screen is expected to use a single tube for lighting, making the display panel thinner and lighter. There’s also the aspect of the IGZO technology, that may or may not be used on said screen. We’ll have to wait and see…
