The front panel from Apple’s upcoming fifth-generation iPad tablet leaked earlier this week and now, high-resolution photos of the redesigned rear housing have emerged. Sonny Dickson on Thursday published a hands-on photo gallery of a silver rear shell said to be from Apple’s upcoming full-size iPad refresh. The housing pictured is in line with an image that leaked back in January, which showed the “iPad 5” case in black. Apple is expected to debut a brand new version of its full-size iPad in October that has been redesigned to compliment the look of the newer iPad mini, which is also expected to be refreshed in October with a modest spec bump and a Retina display. Several leaked images of the iPad 5 housing follow below.
