Reports are currently pointing out to Apple's early release date of the iPad Mini 2 with Retina Display and iPad 5 on April 2013. According to iMore, Apple is seriously thinking about the April launch of the famous iPad devices instead of the rumored October release date.
Apple has this capability to surprise the device enthusiasts since it released the iPad 4 last October 2012 which is only 7 months after the iPad 3 launch.
"iMore has learned that Apple is planning the release of the next generation iPad, presumably the iPad 5 and potentially the iPad mini 2 as soon as this April. Apple may also debut the iPhone 5S for this summer, currently for August," Rene Ritchie of iMore stated.
The April release date of the iPad devices even supports the recently leaked casings for the next generation tablets. However, the reports did not exactly provide information on the upcoming iPad devices. Features, specifications, price, battery life, size and weight concerns may require the Apple engineers and designers to extend a longer time frame for the remarkable developments on the iPads.
iMore further shared details on the upcoming iPhone 5S aside from the rumored August launch. The Apple smart phone will reportedly have the same iPhone 5 design but with a faster processor, fingerprint sensor below the home button and enhanced camera features like the "Smart Flash."
"Apple's next-generation iPhone will apparently focus on imaging. It's also expected to keep the same look and feel as its predecessor, making it yet another incremental update from the world's biggest tech brand," iMore reported.
