It has been a great 2012 for Apple fans. First came the iPad 4, then the IPhone 5 and lastly they gave us a pleasant surprise in the form of IPad Mini. Even the iPad 4 was a surprise given that iPad 3 was released only seven months before that. And, given that the iPad Mini was released only sometime back, the big question is about when iPad 5 will be released and what are the new things that we can expect to see.

Analysts say that Apple might want to go in for an early 2013 release given the dynamics of the tablet market. iPad now sees stiff competition with Microsoft releasing Surface and Google releasing its Nexus 10. Therefore, it is being said that Apple needs to reinvent the iPad to ensure they remain well ahead in the race. Of course, it goes without saying that the next generation iPad has got to be the best with respet to looks, design and specifications.

We bring some of the possible features that might be added to the iPad 5.

Display: The iPad 3 and iPad 4 displays have remained almost identical. Although at the moment, the iPad display is as good as it gets, in the iPad 5 we might desire better readability, brightness of screen and better power efficiency.

Processor Capabilities: The iPad 4 is still in a dual core stage just like the iPhone 5 and continues to run on Apple’s A6. Although A6 is supposed to be twice as fast as A5. However, running the iPad 5 on A6 with a slower processor capability will cause problems like heating when you run high memory applications. Therefore, it has become quite imperative for Apple to introduce a quad core in the iPad 5.

Camera:The iPad 4 and iPad Mini brought with it front and rear cameras. Including the front facing camera gave a much better Facetime and Skype experience to users. Both versions have the same 5MP camera on the rear side. The iPad 5 might be better with a higher resolution front facing camera for better Facetime. Also, in the iPad 4 users have noticed shaking issues due to image stabilization while taking a picture. Apple should iron out these issues in the iPad 5.

A/V Output: The new iPad 4 brought some better audio and video output capabilities. Despite that, it does not have stereo speakers like the ones in the Macbook. A great addition to the iPad 5 would be stereo speakers for a better A/V experience. The iOS 5 saw a feature called Airplay to make the gaming experience greater than the pervious versions. However, in the iOS 6, the Airplay hasn’t improved greatly. This is also because iOS 6 did not have the best transceivers to support better Airplay.

These features will still want Apple fans to want more out of the iPad at the same time stunning them with what it can offer.
