Fifth-gen iPad schematics leaked?

Schematics of Apple’s fifth-generation iPad have allegedly been leaked, according to a new report. The fifth-gen iPad will apparently be 169.48 mm wide, as compared to the fourth-gen’s 185.8 mm width. It appears the height will be reduced to 240 mm from 241.3 mm, and the fifth-gen iPad will be 7.5 mm thick, a notable drop from the previous incarnation’s 9.55 mm thickness. As long expected, the next iPad will more closely resemble the iPad mini’s design.

Notably, this new report also notes “main elements of the device, including the home button,” will stay “largely” the same. There is no mention of Touch ID on the device, though a recent report suggests the second-generation iPad mini will have the feature. [via AppleInsider]
