Chinese-language paper Apple Daily reports that Apple will release a new 9.7-inch iPad this summer with new thinner design using IGZO technology.
Apple is almost certainly not releasing a new iPad this summer. Still, Digitimes, a Chinese-language paper dubbed Apple Daily, is saying just that based on sources.
The new iPad would use Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide (IGZO) panel technology to make the iPad 4 thinner and enhance battery life. It could be true that the iPad 4 coming in 2013 will use IGZO. I could more likely see Apple releasing a new 7-inch iPad Mini this summer to start going after the $199 7-inch tablets from Amazon and Google.
