As Apple's various hardware suppliers send more and more kit to Foxconn for the iPad 3's purported January production start, a few leaks are bound to bubble up. And this latest one's a beaut! MacRumors describes it in riveting detail:
The new part, when compared with iPad 2, shows a different arrangement in internal circuitry, hinting a major re-design. The tail end of the part makes a “U-turn”, whereas the iPad 2′s Microphone Mic Flex Cable makes almost 90-degree turn both ways. Except for few details, the leaked part so far doesn’t offer a tantalizing tease.No kidding. At least we know the next iPad will still have mic support. Quack, quack!
