A couple of pictures have surfaced online which show off gold iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 purported casings, both new tablets are expected to be offered in this color.
The first gold colored product Apple offered is the iPhone 5s. Prior to its announcement on September 10, it was consistently rumored that the next generation iPhone would be offered in gold color. Come launch day, Apple finally made this official. The company is yet to confirm if gold color will be offered for the new tablets as well, but these leaks casings hint at that possibility. Though it doesn’t mean that Apple will really offer this color, that’s up to it to decide.
The purported iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 gold casings seen in these pictures are no different from the purported casings of both tablets that have already been leaked multiple times. The iPad 5 shows off design similarities with the iPad mini like it is supposed to, whereas the iPad mini doesn’t show off any design changes, it isn’t expected to have a new design this time around. Still, there’s no confirmation of both tablets being offered in gold when they’re announced, these purported casings just might turn out to be fake.
Apple is rumored to announce the new iPads on October 22, but so far it hasn’t said anything about an event on this date. So it remains to be seen exactly when Apple intends to finally unveil its next generation iPads.
