Our sources are saying that not only will there be a newly designed iPhone coming in the fall, but there is going to be a new entry into the iPad family as well. As hard as it might be to believe, the new tablet is said to sport a double resolution screen (2048 x 1536), and will be dubbed the “iPad HD.” The idea behind the product is apparently that it will be a “pro” device aimed at a higher end market — folks who work in video and photo production possibly — and will be introduced alongside something like an iPad version of Final Cut or Aperture. This product is specifically said to not be the iPad 3, rather a complimentary piece of the iPad 2 line. Think MacBook and MacBook Pro.

Our sources tell us that the company has been testing the new components in old iPhone cases, for obvious reasons.
sources also reports that iPhone 5 will most likely be completely redesigned as iPhone 4 design has fallen out of favor with Apple executives.
We can’t wait to find out what Apple has in store for us later this fall. What do you think about the possibility of iPad HD and a completely redesigned iPhone 5? Please share your views in the comments section below.
