Apple iPad 5 leaked photo shows iPad mini inspired design

Apple's new iPad 5 could look very similar to its iPad mini sibling. This photo, leaked from Chinese social site Weibo and posted by nowhereelse.fr, claims to be the rear casing of the next-generation iPad 5.

The image reveals that Apple has done away with the curved edges of the last iPad in favour of a more angular design like the mini. It's also added iPad mini-style speaker grilles either side of the Lightning port. Based on previous rumours, the front should also feature the smaller bezel of the mini.

And of further interest is that there might also be a newly redesigned iPad mini 2 in the picture. But if this is the Retina-display-toting mini 2, it's impossible to tell from this angle. We should know all this in September when the release of the iPad 5 and iPad mini is expected.
