Partially Assembled iPad 5 and 'iPhone 5C' Appear in New Videos

Following a report from earlier this week that appeared to show photos of the iPad 5's silver rear shell, Mac Otakara (via Sonny Dickson) has released a brief video that allegedly shows the front panel and back shell of the iPad 5 assembled together for the first time.


Unlike the rear shell shown in photos earlier this week, which was reported to have a silver Apple logo, this part appears to have a transparent or translucent logo. Apple's fifth-generation iPad is expected to launch as soon as next month, with a new iPad mini with Retina display perhaps following soon after.

A second video from Mac Otakara shows alleged rear shell and front bezel parts from Apple's lower-cost iPhone, which has been rumored to be called the iPhone 5C. A similar pairing surfaced in high-quality photos from Techdy last month with a full display assembly rather than just the bezel, although it is unclear if those parts were indeed genuine.

Apple better stay focused on the iPhone. I have a feeling that this is the year they fall WAYYY behind. 5C is great for what it is, but I'm not the slightest bit interested.


"WAYYY behind"? Geez, exaggerate much? Or just wishful thinking? I can't think of a single Android, Windows, or BB phone that has so leapfroged the iPhone 5 that Apple has to do a massive upgrade just to keep up or iPhone users are going to jump ship en masse... I mean that is what happens when a product becomes that "WAYYY behind" its competitors.

5C doesn't interest you. Great. Ever consider maybe you are not the target demo for it so it's not suppose to interest you?

I hate the iPad's chunky bezels. IF this video is true, I think I will finally get me a sleek looking iPad!

The 5S is the flagship device for 2014 and i hope it's a bit more then rumors suggest. A better camera, and a FP sensor isn't gonna cut it. Competition is closing in from all angles. They can't afford to stumble with the 5S. 2
