A new video has been released comparing some of the leaked parts for the next-gen iPad to the older models.
The clip was released by Chinese parts supplier sw-box.com who made the video using the slate-gray back plate. It basically details the physical differences between the 4th-gen and 5th gen models.
The iPad 5 release date should be coming soon as parts from the device have been leaking more frequently. Pictures of this gray rear shell used in the video were posted by Australian write Sonny Dickson last week. The leak seems pretty legit as Apple just launched its new iPhone 5S in this same exact color.
A shell for the next-gen iPad mini also leaked in this same color two weeks ago. The release date for that device could be as early as next month as the company is expected to unveil the new device in October.
There have been several leaks of the tablet's rear shells over the past few months, with most of them being a silver color. A Japanese parts retailer posted up the first picture of the component in a new space grey color earlier this month.
Another report from C Technology claimed that the new iPad mini will be coming in this color. It also stated that the full-sized iPad will also be released in this color. Both devices will also come in gold and silver.
A recent research note published by KGI Securities Ming-Chi Kuo stated that the full-sized iPad and iPad mini 2 will come with Apple's new A7X chip. This is a significant upgrade for the smaller model that used an A5 in the original version. The chip will also help support the Retina display that will be found in both new models.
