A designer has created a 3D model to illustrate what Apple's iPad 5 could look like, based on the latest rumours that suggest that Apple's fifth-generation iPad will be thinner and lighter than the iPad 4, adopting a similar design to the iPad mini.

Designer Martin Uit Ultrecht published his concept designs on 3DExport, explaining that the model is based on the accurate model he made of the iPad mini, but with the 10in screen size of the full-size iPad.

Earlier this week, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has correctly predicted Apple launches in the past, said that he expects the iPad 5 to implement the software used in the iPad mini to prevent unwanted responses when users accidentally touch the edges of the screen when using the device in one hand. This will allow the iPad to have narrower borders like its smaller counterpart.

While some analysts have predicted a March launch for the iPad 5, as Apple introduces a biannual product cycle, Kuo believes that the tablet won't be unveiled until the third quarter of the year.

Kuo's predictions also include a Retina iPad mini 2, which he will launch at the same time as the next generation 10in iPad.
