iPad 5 In Space Gray Gets The Hands-On Treatment In New Videos

We’ve been seeing leaked parts for the next-gen iPad and iPad mini for awhile now, so you should already have a good idea of what the devices will be like. Expect a thinner and lighter fifth-gen iPad with faster specs, and the second-gen iPad mini will most likely have a Retina display. Apple’s media event for the tablets is expected to take place sometime this month.

Since the release of the iPhone 5s, leaks suggest that Apple will bring the iPhone’s updated color options to its iPads as well. A new round of hands-on videos take a look at the iPad in Space Gray.

The first video comes from Lewis Hilsenteger, who has shown off unreleased Apple parts before:

And the second video is from iCrackUriDevice, another source that has leaked parts in the past:

The first video shows the Space Gray iPad with a black front bezel, which lines up with the Space Gray version of the iPhone 5s. We haven’t seen any substantial leaks for gold iPad parts yet, but Silver and Space Gray look like a sure bet at this point.

    No smart cover would be a drag [lack of magnets mentioned in the first video]. I think the smart cover has kind of become synonymous with the form and function of the iPad.

    You’re paranoid. Millions of these devices are currently in production, and anonymous sources in China get payed big money to acquire components for third-party accessory manufacturing. Why do you think you can find a cheap plastic case for the newest generation of Apple products [on eBay] on day one? Do you honestly think Apple is just handing out tech specs for unannounced products to these barely established third parties? No. Out of the tens of millions of employees building these products, there’s bound to be a couple bad eggs in the bunch willing to extort such information for a pretty penny. Apple doesn’t have to lift a finger.
