Rumor Mills have started a new rumor about possible changes in next year’s Apple product lineup. iLounge reports that one of their trusted source has spoken of three things which will be on display next summer. The first on the agenda being, iPad 3 will be slightly thicker than the iPad 2, secondly, The iPhone 5 to be released as a 4-inch device, and finally, a new look MacBook Pro line will be launched.
Firstly, we shall discuss the iPad 3 being slightly thicker than iPad 2 scenario:
iPad 3 is rumored to be 0.77mm or about 8% thicker than iPad 2. This is required to install the twin light bar system needed to illuminate a 9.7-inch Retina Display. Makes sense to us, as does iLounge’s claim that the iPad 3 would be released in March but shown off for the first time in January which would give developers ample amount of time to update their iPadapps to the new Retina Display.
