Gadgetwise Reviews: An iPad 5 Case Hints at Design Changes

Shortly before the iPhone 5 was announced, the first case for that phone arrived at my desk. It was made by Gumdrop.

Not resting on its laurels, Gumdrop is even further out front this time, releasing covers for the iPad 5, a device that is not expected to be unveiled before this week, although some predict it will be much later than that.

The new case provides some clues about the design of the new iPad. If the size of the case is correct, the new pad will be thinner and narrower. Information tracked by MacRumors places the dimensions at 15 percent thinner and up to 33 percent lighter than the current iPad.

International Business Times Reviews: Apple iPad 5: Case Maker Still Confident In Specs, Despite Being Wrong About WWDC 2013 Release Date

Tim Hickman, the CEO of Oakland, Calif.-based Gumdrop Cases, says he will not pull the recently released iPad 5 cases from his store, even though he had predicted the iPad 5 would be released at WWDC 2013 this week, which obviously didn't happen.

"Gumdrop iPad 5 case debuting ahead of the Worldwide Developers Conference was a complete gamble, but we’ve been right four out of five times," Hickman said in a statement to IBTimes. "Even though Apple didn’t announce the iPad 5, we are confident that the dimensions we have are correct."

CNET Reviews: iPad 5 coming next week? Gumdrop Cases is betting on it

Tim Hickman, founder and CEO of Gumdrop Cases, has made it a tradition to announce cases for major Apple products ahead of their launches. He's currently batting 4 for 5, only whiffing badly in 2011 when another of his companies -- Hard Candy Cases -- released an iPhone 5 case in advance of the iPhone 4S launch and it didn't fit. It wasn't even close.

Now Hickman is stepping up to the plate again, trotting out new cases for the iPad 5, which he expects Apple to unveil at next week's 2013 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco. Rumors and leaked images of a new "large" iPad with a trimmer design have been circulating for months, but the time frame for its launch remains up in the air. Initially, some Apple watchers thought the company would unveil the product at this year's WWDC, but other reports had the launch being pushed to this fall.
