“Taiwanese Apple-focused forum Apple.pro has leaked what appears to be an iPad 3 part,” Christian Zibreg reports for 9to5Mac.
“The machine-translated description mentions a part labeled ‘821-1259-06’ which looks a lot like a dock connector with the accompanying ribbon cable attached to it,” Zibreg reports. “The ribbon cable itself makes a 90-degree turn whereas it was straight on iPad 1 and 2.”

Zibreg reports, “This in itself indicates some design changes of the next iPad’s internals. For comparison, the iPad 2′s dock connector is labeled ‘821-1180-A,’ the site observes… The component is said to be sourced from Apple’s ‘internal inventory’ and leaked by an unnamed source.”
