Apple iPad 5 case photographed

Sonny Dickinson, a previously reliable source, has managed to snap some up-close shots of the iPad 5 front panel.

The reason parts keep leaking through this source is the same reason he hasn't named where they come from – people trust him. That said, it looks like the front panel will feature a smaller iPad Mini style bezel as previous rumours have suggested.  

This should hopefully mean we can expect a thinner and lighter iPad 5 that manages to keep the Retina Display. But one of the LED tubes will probably be dumped to accommodate these changes. Here's hoping it doesn't affect brightness too badly. Smart thumb recognition tech should also be on board now that those bezel sides have been trimmed down.

Expect to see the iPad 5 released in September.
