Normally, we wouldn’t put much stock in an Apple rumor like this one. After all, Apple just released two regular sized iPads last year. However, Rene Ritchie at iMore says that a new iPad may arrive in April. Rene Ritchie has been good with Apple rumors in the past, so it’s worth consideration.
That’s not a for sure thing, he says that “April-ish” is getting “serious consideration,” but that he’s “not sure what to make of that yet.” The new iPad is rumored to take a design cue from the iPad mini. It has a reshaped back panel and a thinner side bezel. At least that’s what the rumors say.
The other rumor, which would be very disappointing if true, is that Apple is releasing an iPad mini 2, but it won’t have a Retina display. That would be very uncool, and we hope his source is very mistaken on that one.
