iPad 5 to Be Released This March – Report

Analyst Brian White with Topeka Capital Markets has heard that Apple will introduce its fifth-generation iPad as well as a new version of the iPad mini in March.

White was reportedly told by industry sources at this week's CES event in Las Vegas that the new “iPad 5” would be lighter and thinner than the current-generation model, dubbed by the media as iPad 4.

As for the iPad mini, the second-generation diminutive tablet PC will reportedly have a similar form factor as the current version, but it will be equipped with a faster chip and other upgraded components.

The analyst didn’t specifically mention a Retina display for the iPad mini 2, but most analysts agree that Apple will include a HiDPI screen in the second iteration of its smaller tablet

It's been shared on the internet so it must be true.

Upping the processor a bit and the RAM to a Gig would be enough for me to buy one. I'll notice the low ppi but it's less of a deterrent than the low RAM.

Do you really notice the low 500+mb ram on the mini ?

Everything runs smooth on mine

I notice lags on my iPad 2, of which the mini is basically a smaller version. Historically iOS becomes a little more resource intensive with each generation so I would notice it even more on iOS 7.

I doubt it... because Apple hasn't a A7X core available.

No you can't tell me I won't notice any lag because you don't know which apps I use; how full mine is; how many photos I keep on it; what kind of image editing I do; which mail accounts I use and how full my inbox is; how graphics heavy the magazines I have in Zinio are; whether I view big PDFs; how often I switch between apps; how many tabs I keep open and how resource intensive the sites I visit are; etc.

So. While you don't notice any lag. I do notice some on my iPad 2 and since the Mini is a smaller iPad 2 with the same amount of RAM and a slightly faster CPU I will notice some lag on the current iPad Mini.

We all know Apple is moving their releases closer together to stay competitive with the other companies that release products damn nearly weekly...

...But still this seems awfully soon.

I for one can't wait for a thinner and lighter full size iPad despite getting a 4 in December. As it is, the iPad is somewhat of a fat whale and over time it takes a toll on your hands and wrists if you're holding it. I'll just sell the 4 on eBay and upgrade in March if that's how it's gonna be.

To fan the flames, iLounge has just put another report from "reliable sources" that the iPad 5 will launch in March with a thinner body, smaller bezels on the right and left sides like those found on the iPad Mini, and also sporting the new design that the iPad Mini has.

Analysts are the same people that claim we would have an Apple television set in 2011, then 2012, now 2013. Most analyst claims don't mean much. Analysts are basically paid to speculate. (Which I feel is morally wrong when it comes to peoples money, but thats another argument) And given Apples huge dip from 700 a couple months ago, It could be bait to keep investors "investing" to keep stock prices higher. Oops, there I go speculating.

There were some analysts which claimed Apple would launch the iPad mini. So while you have to take all rumors with a grain of salt, their speculation sometimes is correct.

A updated ipad mini will definitely not have a retina display in March.

I agree. Can you imagine the whine-fest that would happen if the Mini got Retina after only six months. The internet would drown in conspiracies about how retina was ready for the first one but Apple held it back just to make more money.

Obviously not you guys on here, I'm talking about everyone else.

Agreed. Just because Apple releases a new iPad doesn't mean the one you have suddenly becomes a paperweight.
