The first case allegedly for the redesigned iPad 5 has surfaced online and it features a design similar to the iPad mini, reports MacRumors who was sent the pics by MiniSuit.
The iPad 5 case is slimmer than the fourth-generation iPad case, which supports rumors that the next iPad will share design similarities with the iPad mini, most notably featuring smaller side bezels. The back of the case depicts an extra hole, which is for the microphone. The current fourth-generation iPad's microphone is located at the top of the device, but Apple has relocated the microphone to the back of the iPad 5, as noted in leaked photos of the rear shell of the device.
MiniSuit believes that the redesigned iPad 5 will be released in June but a recent report from iLounge said Apple is planning to released the iPad 5 in October.
