update: Thanks to French  site NowhereElse now we know that this is a false rumor. The picture is in fact an iPad mini part taken from this part vendor’s website

Sometime this month, we reported on whispers of an alleged iPad 5 release date which has September 2013 clear in its sights, although nothing concrete has been confirmed just yet. Having said that, we also have also heard on the digital grapevine that Apple is working on an iPad that sports a massive 12.9” display, where it has been deemed to be the iPad ‘Maxi’. We are not quite sure what to make of that, but if you were to take this leaked photo of the alleged upcoming iPad 5’s panel into consideration, then it would surely rule out the above display from being a potential iPad Maxi.

Select sources from the supply chain did drop hints in the past that the iPad 5 which will most probably be released later this year will be almost a third lighter compared to Apple’s current best product, where it will sport a minimal side bezel, hence making it even more compact and comfortable to tote around, all the while ensuring the classic premium aluminum shell remains preserved.
