I would say ‘spoiler alert,’ but I’m sure it’s far too late for that. Photos of shells and components belonging to Apple’s fifth-generation tablet have been bouncing around the web since January of this year.
But these new images offer an extremely clear look at the so-called iPad 5—perhaps the best we’ve seen thus far. And they give us a really good idea of what we can expect to see from Apple later this month… Read More

Now that Apple has launched its long-rumored fingerprint sensor in the iPhone 5s, the next big question is: when will it make it into the iPad? A recent leak indicates we may see it in the new iPad mini this year, but what about the iPad 5?
While there’s no way to concretely answer this question until Apple unveils the tablet, a new video hit the web yesterday that aims to provide some insight. Apparently the 5s’ Touch ID Home button fits perfectly in a front panel for an iPad 5… Read More

Apple’s next-generation full-sized iPad is expected to sport a redesigned casing, similar to that of the iPad mini. It’s said to be lighter and thinner than the iPad 4, with an overall smaller footprint.

While it’s still unclear if the next-gen iPad mini will sport a Retina display, it seems that it will feature a Touch ID Home button and gold color option. That is, if this pair of leaked photos showing the alleged tablet are to be believed.
The above image, and one we’ve posted right after the break, surfaced on Chinese site DoNews this morning. And as you can see, they show what appears to be a 7.9-inch iPad with a gold-colored shell and Apple’s new fingerprint sensor… Read More

With Apple widely expected to unveil two new iPhones next week, folks have been wondering what’s going to happen to the current iPhone 5. Apple typically keeps previous models around to sell at a discount, but it may not have to with a lower-cost ’5C’ in the lineup.
In fact, some pundits believe that Apple is going to discontinue the iPhone 5 later this month. And today comes purported evidence of that theory, with a leaked carrier inventory screenshot showing multiple current-gen iPhones being discontinued on September 28… Read More

As the September 10 iPhone event draws nearer, pundits have begun to cast their final predictions for what features Apple’s next smartphone will possess. A faster processor seems like a given, as do a better camera and new gold colorway, but what else?
A lot of folks also think that the iPhone 5S will have a fingerprint scanner built into its Home button. It’s been reported by analysts on several occasions, and evidence of it surfaced in iOS 7, but we have yet to see any real concrete proof. Until now? Read More

It appears that Samsung is going to beat Apple to the wearable tech space this week. The company has an ‘Unpacked’ media event scheduled for Wednesday, September 4, where it’s widely presumed to unveil a new smartwatch.
Now, this category is still fairly new, so we really don’t know what to expect to see on Wednesday. But if these images from VentureBeat are legitimate, Samsung’s Galaxy watch will feature a 3-inch display and a chunky design… Read More

Some new photos hit the web tonight, showing what is believed to be an iPhone 5S shell in a gold/champagne color next to black and white versions of the iPhone 5. If legitimate, the photos reaffirm recent speculation that Apple will offer its new handset in three colors.

New photos of a rear shell believed to belong to the next generation iPad surfaced late last night. The images appear to show a silver casing, which is consistent with previous reports and leaked parts pointing to a smaller, thinner tablet.
We’ve seen a number of black/slate shells allegedly belonging to the new iPad on the web over the past several months. In fact, they first popped up all the way back in January. But this is one of the first times we’ve seen a white/silver shell… Read More

At this point, we’ve seen so many photos of purported budget iPhone shells that it’s hard to imagine Apple not launching the handset this fall. But just in case you are still skeptical, we’re adding more evidence to the pile this morning.
A new hi-res hands-on video of a yellow iPhone shell, believed to belong to Apple’s low-end handset, hit the web late last night. And it gives us an extremely close up view of both the outside, and inside of the so-called iPhone 5C’s casing… Read More

Though we’re fairly confident that Apple will be holding an event on Tuesday, September 10 to unveil a new iPhone, we’re still not exactly sure what it will present. Safe money is on a new iPhone model, the iPhone 5S, but what else?
It’s starting to seem more and more likely that the 5S will share the stage with a lower cost, plastic handset next month. We’ve seen dozens of leaked parts corroborating the theory over the summer, and today, we’re adding a few more… Read More

Back in January of this year, iLounge’s Jeremy Horwitz claimed to have seen a physical model of the fifth generation iPad. He said it was “a lot smaller than one would guess was possible” with “virtually no left or right bezels.”
Since then, all of the reports and part leaks we’ve seen have corroborated Horwitz’ description. We’ve seen rear shells of the tablet—more than once—and a few cases, and today we have new pictures of a black front panel… Read More

Most of the reports we’ve seen over the past 6 months have suggested that Apple is going to be releasing a new, low-cost iPhone alongside its iPhone 5S this fall. And the theory has been corroborated by a mound of evidence, including a barrage of plastic iPhone shells.
Adding to the evidence today is Michael Kukielka, also known as the DetroitBorg, who has posted a high quality video of what appears to be a white plastic iPhone shell. Kukielka gives us a clear view of the case and compares it to the iPod touch and other iPhone models… Read More
