Earlier today, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo issued a new research report where he has made his predictions on what Apple will launch in 2013.
Designer Martin uit Utrecht, who created the 3D renderings of the iPhone 5 based on the leaked parts is back. He has created some amazing 3D renderings of what the 5th generation iPad will look like based on the rumors. He writes:
According to sources the design of the new iPad will follow the design language of the iPad mini.
This 3D model was based on the accurate model which I made of the iPad mini but keeping the same display size as the large iPad.
iPad 5 vs iPad 3/iPad 4 dimensions:
height: 4mm less
width: 17mm less
thickness: 2mm less

Utrecht expects iPad 5 back casing to come with the same kind of anodized aluminum coating used in the 5th generation iPod touch and iPad mini, with the lightning connector and the iPad mini-like speaker grille.
