Hi-res photos show iPad 5 rear housing

Updated

Another rear housing for the fifth-generation iPad has allegedly been leaked in very clear photos, which appear to be legitimate. The images suggest again that Apple has at least contemplated a rear microphone for this model, as a centered rear hole appears to be located behind the front-facing camera. Notably, a rear-facing mic was taken out of the iPad mini before release, and some early iPad 5 cases omit the hole.

The report claims the fifth-gen iPad bezel is “now measuring at 3 mm” around the edges of the screen, but it’s impossible to tell if this is true without the front piece of the device. As with prior leaks, there is no space for a rear flash on the device. [via FanaticFone.com]
