iPad mini 2 in Gold: slate appears with Touch ID

All the way upstream in the wild west (or Wild East, if you prefer) of secondhand parts stores sourced from what's supposedly Apple's own assembly line appears a Gold colored iPad mini 2. This device follows with the release of the iPhone 5s in Gold and the suggestion that the iPad's 5th generation release will kick out the Gold as well. Here a set of up-close photos also suggest that this model will be released with Touch ID - aka the fingerprint sensor delivered with the iPhone 5s as well.

iPad 5 in Gold: three color SIM trays appear in repair shops

Now that the iPhone 5s has been unveiled, the 5th generation iPad is up for the big leaks show, appearing this week with three different color SIM card trays. These parts appear to be popping up in a manner not unlike the parts we saw earlier this year that indicated the Gold iPhone 5s as well as what we'd assumed was Gunmetal - that turned out to be called Space Gray. Now the iPad 5's SIM trays are showing up in the same three tones: Gold, Space Gray, and White (silver for white, that is).

iPhone 5c 3D printable cases incoming with bigger bubbles [UPDATE]

Supposing you saw the iPhone 5c and didn't find Apple's own official cases to be appealing as you'd wished, this week you may be in luck. Industrial Designer and 3D illustrator Martin Hajek has created a set of NURBS models for customization of this basic case, allowing users to get creative as they please. The first thing Hajek did was to open up the center column of holes along the backside of the iPhone 5c case to reveal the iPhone logo.

iPhone 5S and 5C rumor round-up

Tomorrow an Apple event will play host to the launch of what's expected to be more than one new iPhone device as well as the formal public release of iOS 7. This mobile operating system update to the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch device family was introduced earlier this year at Apple's yearly developers conference WWDC.

iPhone with 6-inch display tipped for testing at Apple

iPhone with 6-inch display tipped for testing at Apple

Just as Apple is set to show of their next round of iPhone devices with 4-inch displays - like the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, for example - word has it that they're in testing with handsets as large as 6-inches. A report from the the Wall Street Journal today suggests that sources familiar with the matter have informed them of Apple testing displays for iPhones anywhere from 4.8-inches all the way up to 6-inches diagonally. This would place Apple squarely up against the likes of the HTC One (with it's 4.7-inch display) and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (with it's 5.7-inch display) for a battle that wont begin until next year (at the very soonest).

iPad 5 hardware panel appears vs iPad mini 2

There's a 5th generation iPad in the works, and a set of photos this week (once again) provides clues suggesting the size and shape of this device likely appearing in full later this year. With the success of the iPad mini comes Apple's redesign of the iPad - here rolling out in (more) unofficial images from China-based leakster Xubo Long with rounded edges and a smaller bit of area for bezel on all four sides. While we've just got the back panel here (alongside an iPad mini 2), the front panel needs only be imagined to see the full device.

iPad mini 2 housing leaks aside iPad 5

iPad mini 2 housing leaks aside iPad 5

Though the changes appear to be few, the next-generation casings for both the iPad 5 and the iPad mini 2 appear to be hitting the factory floor with bits and pieces all their own. This double dose of Apple hardware - if it does indeed prove to be legitimate, shows the iPad family to be making a few aesthetic changes while it improves its innards - innards which we've been hypothesizing are getting incremental updates this Fall. The first of these changes comes in the Apple logo.

iPad 5 specifications leaks produce HD mock-up

With the iPad 3 - aka the Retina display-toting iteration being taken-over in silence by the iPad 4, what with its first implementation of the Lightning port, the 5th generation appears to be aiming for a whole new form factor. What we're seeing this afternoon is a series of mock-ups of this new device based on previous specification sheets leaked several weeks ago. In short - this device is not just short, but thin and a bit smaller around the edges, too.

While Apple hasn't directly confirmed the existence of the iWatch exactly, a whirlpool of rumors, tips, and reports on the matter paint a rather interesting picture of a watch that's not just an accessory to play second-fiddle to the iPhone.
