Sources say iPad 5 will be thinner and lighter than fourth-gen model

Apple to start iPad 5 production in July?

DigiTimes has reported that production for the iPad 5 will kick off in July-August 2013.

The publications says that sources within the Taiwan-based supply chain makers claim that the new iPad will be thinner and lighter than the fourth-gen one and will adopt the slim bezel design of the iPad mini.

This in in keeping with a report back in January made by Analyst Brian White, although White put the release date as early as last month.

The sources say that yield rates for key components, such as touch panels, will be a ‘major concern for smooth production’.
