iPad 3 will come up with some very significant changes compared with the previous version. Here is the leaked photo, allegedly as part of the iPad 3 casing, as well as comparison with iPad 2, as reported by RepairLabs below (click to enlarge).
Photo captions (as quoted from RepairLabs):
- The mounts for the logic board are very different, which means the logic board shape will be different.
- More battery. The width of where the logic board sits on the iPad 2 appears much larger than that of the iPad 3.
- The camera is different than on the iPad 2.
- LCD will be different.
It has been reported that Apple has chosen the first week in March as the release of iPad 3. The event will be held in San Francisco, USA, and most likely located in the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts which is a favorite spot for Apple's big event of this kind.
