Apple's latest iPad to be thinner, lighter, sans TouchID

gadgets Updated: Oct 22, 2013 02:38 IST

The wait for the latest iPad5 is about to get over, with Apple unveiling its product late on Tuesday. The gadget will have a sleek new design but lack the most-hyped fingerprint scanning feature of iPhone5S.

The iPad5 is speculated to have the high-definition Retina display while its smaller version iPad Mini 2 will be lighter.

According to Mirror, the latest tablets won’t come in gold colour, as introduced in the latest iPhone5S range, and will be without the high-security finger scanner feature, as speculated earlier.

Sources claim that the iPad 5 will be 20% thinner and lighter than the current model, and will have the same narrow bezel design as the iPad Mini.

iPad 5 is also likel to have an 8 megapixel camera, while the iPad Mini 2 will have a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, rivaling Google's Nexus 7 II and Amazon's Kindle Fire HD.

Despite lack of the gold colour and the finger scanner, the new iPads are expected to have the M7 motion tracking chip.
