Pro-oriented iPad HD, redesigned iPhone 5 coming this fall?

Apple plans to introduce an iPad HD alongside an iPhone 5 sporting a new design later this year, according to a new report. Citing multiple unnamed sources, This is my next… reports that the iPad HD will sit in the iPad family alongside the iPad 2, and will be aimed at the higher end market, sporting a 2048 x 1536 display and possibly launching alongside “something like an iPad version of Final Cut or Aperture.” The product is said to not be the iPad 3, but instead a compliment to the iPad 2 line, much like the relationship between the MacBook and MacBook Pro.

The report also states that the next-generation iPhone will carry the iPhone 5 moniker, and will sport a new design, as the iPhone 4’s design is said to be out of favor at the “highest levels of the company.” As for the “iPhone 4S” rumors, the report blames the confusion on the fact that Apple has been placing iPhone 5 components inside a casing that looks nearly identical to the iPhone 4 — since the components are designed for a thinner enclosure, they are said to easily fit — and using these as test units.
