iPad 3 shell shots spied on web

Snaps point to bigger battery. Possibly

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Snaps are circulating Apple and iPad fansites revealing that the upcoming iPad 3 will hold a larger battery than its predecessor… probably.

One shot, from repair site Fix-iPhones, shows the inside of what's claimed to be the back of the iPad 3's casing. The site infers that the re-sited screw holes and such mean the new tablet will contain a different sized motherboard in order to make room for the bigger power cell.

A larger battery has been mooted before, primarily to support the tablet's anticipated 2048 x 1536 display but also for the LTE support the gadget has more recently been said to feature.

Indeed, LTE is proving something of a battery hammerer where it has been implemented in smartphones in the States, so it's no surprise Apple would want to pack in as big a power pack as possible.

Past rumours have claimed the iPad 3 will be fractionally thicker than the iPad 2 as a result. Heavier too, we suspect.

The snap shows some slight differences in the positioning of the iPad 3's rear-facing camera, but nothing that will seemingly make any practical difference when the product is available for use. Expect a similar-sized speaker as the current model sports.

A second shot, this time posted by Asian website Apple.Pro, shows the external face of the iPad 3's rear, which reveals the differences between it and the iPad 2's backplate are of the 'blink and you'll miss them' type.
