Expect the iPad 5 to be Thinner and Lighter

April 18th, 2013 | Posted by JThompson in iPad

thin-tabletApple’s next generation of iPad will be 15% thinner and 25% lighter than the fourth-generation model.

The reduction in its size is due to a handful of modifications. The battery is supposed to be 25 percent to 30 percent smaller and improvements on display panels and A-series chip technology, which now uses less energy. Apple also will use the same touch technology found on the iPad mini, which is thinner than what it currently uses on its full-size iPads.

This is just the latest in a series of rumors and murmurs pointing to a slimmer iPad. Apple’s used what’s effectively been the same outside design for the device for the past three versions, something of an abnormality when compared with the iPhone and iPod line.

The purchasing of an  iPad can be expensive, and unless you are planning on using it all the time, it doesn’t make sense to spend a lot of money on one or multiple of them. RentOurTablets.com provides you with the opportunity to rent a singular iPad or a large number for a period of time! For more information, check out our iPad Rentals and our iPad Mini Rentals
