Common sense tells us that a new iPad isn't far away. With last November's 4th-generation model being little more than a minor spec-bump, we're going on 16 months since the last significant update to the 9.7-inch iPad. Previous rumors have given us a pretty clear idea of what the next model will look like, and now we may also have a clearer idea of when Apple will announce it.
According to a report from DigiTimes, Apple is expected to announce the 5th-gen iPad this September. Apple has still only placed pilot production orders, but it looks like everything is running smoothly so far:
Although suppliers have not yet received a firm mass production schedule from Apple and are mainly shipping products for pilot production, the sources pointed out that pilot production is already able to satisfy demand for the initial launch. Therefore, the sources expect Apple to give its shipment estimates at the end of July or early August.
