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.
