iPad 5: Release Date and More Rumored Features

It's drawing near to the typical refresh time for Apple's iPad. This time Apple is about to launch its latest iPad - the iPad 5. Many Apple fans are wondering when is the time to replace their old iPad with the brand new iPad 5 or buy their first iPad.

Rumors spread wildly and it points towards a possible release date of iPad 5 between April and June of this year. Some industry observers think it could be as late as October. However, what I care most is not the release time, but what iPad 5 gonna surprise us with this time. Here's our top list of stuff we expect to see in the updated iPad line, which details some iPad 5 features and specifications.

iPad 5 Release Date

iPad 5 Screens - Thinner and Lighter

Since the release of the thinner and lighter iPad mini on October, 2012, there have been predictions that Apple would turn around and release a thinner, lighter iPad 5 in early 2013. Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst for KGI Securities, expects Apple to pack "GF DITO" (or GF2) touchscreen technology into the speculative new iPad 5. GF2 is already used in the new iPad mini, which helps to make it 23 percent thinner and 53 percent lighter than its bigger brother.

Those screens may make the move to a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio if Los Angeles industry analyst Paul Mueller is correct. "I have talked to at least three people close to Apple who say that there are new iPad prototypes that have a 16:9 aspect ratio," Mueller told The Examiner in September 2012. That change would ideal for watching movies but as it would make the iPad taller and narrower, holding it in portrait mode would be a little awkward.

iPad 5 Cameras: Increased Megapixel Front and Rear iSight

No one would doubt that Apple is likely to use a higher-megapixel CMOS in the rear and forward iSight cameras. It would not surprise me to see 8MP in the rear and 2MP in the front, particularly for newer augmented-reality apps as well as high-definition Facetime and possible facial gesture recognition and security enhancements to Siri and iOS 7.

Besides, I expect some improvements in the lens elements to allow for improved image capture in lower-light scenarios, as well as improved image stabilization software.

System on a Chip: A7 Processor

This time Apple is going to show up with the introduction of the A7, a big improvement in Apple's product. Apple is now facing a lot of pressure from Samsung's home-grown high-performance Exynos 5 processor used in the Nexus 10 and the Galaxy S 4 smartphone.

Although the design of this chip is highly secretive, one can infer that the company is going to move to the ARM Cortex-A15 architecture for at least two CPU processor cores, clocked at a minimum of 1.7Ghz. It is possible that we're about to see a 2x or more boost in GPU processor power over the A6X, increasingly moving the needle closer to the capabilities of their PC and console counterparts and enabling the most demanding games on tablet hardware.

iPad 5 Charging: Inductive Power

Early in the beginning of 2013, it has been revealed that Apple is looking into equipping its iPad Smart Covers with induction coils so that you'll be able to charge your iPad simply by closing the cover, which has been filed by Apple as its patent in 2011.

The patent, called "Integrated inductive charging in protective cover," talks of "an inductive power transmitter arranged to wirelessly pass power to a corresponding inductive power receiver unit disposed within the tablet device."

Additionally, it is possible that we may finally see the introduction of Apple's own proprietary magnetic induction charging, incorporated in the form of an updated smart cover accessory.
