Alot of rumors have been supplied by Digitimes, for upcoming products from Apple, though the accuracy always ends up being in the great debate. So far though, MacRumors reports that base don their findings, only 55% of Digitimes rumors are accurate, that could later on be confirmed to be true.
A finding of a codename discovered by 9to5Mac within the latest betas for iOS 5 shows and confirms that Digitimes was accurate within some of their reports of the iPad 3 that is being rumored to be released soon in 2012.
The mode being “J2″ corrosponds to another recent report given by Digitimes which is where they discussed two other prototype models that were codenamed J1 and J2, which Apple had been working on before.
Apple is currently giving two tablet PC projects codenamed J1 and J2 to its upstream partners for development. The sources revealed that the major differences of the new tablet PCs compared to the previous model are their size, specifications and technologies.
Since the new tablet PCs have a higher resolution, Apple has demanded the design of the light source to be changed from a single LED light bar to two LED light bars on the left and right sides of the machine, but since the method of adopting two LED light bars has created difficulty in shrinking the machine’s thickness, some vendors have come out with designs that only adopt one light bar, but are packing two LED chips into one package.
This vague report doesn’t touch up on any issues that have already appeared from any other sources aswell.
Issues of the higher resolution screen of the iPad 3 required a light bar secondly for the iPad 3 and was already reported by Digitimes too. It was then later on reported by iLounge that the newer iPad 3 be ending up being 0.7mm thicker than the iPad 2 specifically because of the need to incorporate a dual light bar system which would be the support for the higher-resolution display.
It was believed all throughout by us that Apple would be start working on the iPad 3 with a newer “Retina” display which would of been twice the size of the iPad 2′s current screen resolution. Rumors being persistent suggested that partners of Apple had difficulties already in creating such screens in the masses of production.
