Fifth-gen iPad in 3Q, next iPad mini later?

A new report from the spotty DigiTimes claims that Apple will release the fifth-generation iPad in the third quarter, but will delay the release of the second-generation iPad mini by a few months. The new iPad mini will allegedly be delayed for one of two reasons: to prevent the mini from impacting sales of the larger iPad, or due to Apple’s supply chain “being unable to meet the mass-production schedule.” Despite the supposed delay, it could be released for the holiday season. The report also claims that the redesigned fifth-generation iPad will feature a “thin-film-type touch panel solution” to reduce its weight.

Hopefully, if Apple is doing what people actually want, the delay will be because the second gen mini will essentially be the iPad 4 in a smaller form with the iPad 5 being a new trailblazer for iOS tablet specs.
