According to leaked photos of a blueprint for the iPad 5 suggests that the next-generation iPad will have a design similar to that of the iPad Mini.
In addition, the size of the device is smaller than the iPad 4 in terms of length, width and thickness.
Specifically, it could be 7.9mm thin, 232mm long and 178.5mm wide, as compared to the current version which is 241.3mm long and 185.8mm wide.
At the same time, the frame around the display of the next iPad could be thinner.
Previous reports claimed that the iPad 5 might be launched from mid-September to late October this year.
