Technology titan Apple is likely to announce its next generation iPad in September as rumoured before.

According to a report published by Taiwan-based Digitimes, the fifth-generation iPad could come in September while plans for iPad mini launch are yet to be finalised. It was also mentioned that the next iPad is likely to come with a very thin bezel which would in turn allow for a wider viewing area. Previous rumours also suggested that the next generation iPad would come with a slim design.

Suppliers have reportedly begun the pilot production of the 9.7-inch iPad and are yet to receive any order for mass production of the device from Apple. Earlier in June, a French website leaked the blueprint of much anticipated device which it having a thickness of 7.9 mm, almost 1.5 mm thinner than the current model.

"Although suppliers have not yet received a firm mass production schedule from Apple and are mainly shipping products for pilot production, the sources pointed out that pilot production is already able to satisfy demand for the initial launch," stated the report.

It was also said that the launch of iPad mini would be delayed further as there are still issues regarding the Retina display. Apparently, Apple has asked suppliers to make the bezel of 7.9-inch iPad mini more thinner similar to that of big-sized smartphones from Samsung and HTC.
