Apple could (unsurprisingly) release a new 9in iPad 5 this September according to TrendForce.
The market research firm believes that the new iPad 5 will feature the same thinner touch module and narrower bezels found on the iPad Mini to help reduce the new iPad 5's thickness and weight.
The iPad 2 is also expected to gracefully bow out of the Apple roster – and with cost reductions in the new iPad's display panel, we could even see a price drop across all versions to boot.
Unexpected? Perhaps not, but it would be nice to wrap our hands around a 9in Apple tablet with a fresh-faced makeover. Roll on September!
