Pre-production iPad, iPad mini, and iPhone 5 casings vs. iPhone 4S

MacRumors reader Michael Rou has managed to get his hands on both a pre-production iPhone 5 case and a pre-production iPad mini case and posted comparison photos on Flickr,” Arnold Kim reports for MacRumors.

“The cases were created by case manufacturers in anticipation of the upcoming models,” Kim reports. “Designs are based on leaked specs coming out of Foxconn factories.”

Kim reports, “The photo does a great job showing the relative sizes of the various devices.”

Check out the photo comparison in the full article here.

  1. There were many cases shown before the 4s came out ‘proving’ it would be thinner/tapered/teardrop shaped, yada, yada, yada…
    I have a Kickstarter order for a highly protective, impact resistant case for the iP5, and they won’t even think of producing a prototype until they have a physical example to measure. These have got to be pure speculation, probably run off on a 3D printer in a local Maker fab.
