Rumor: Supposed iPad 3 component suggest redesign

CydiaBlog has stumbled upon a supposedly leaked component from Chinese parts retailer TVC-Mall for the upcoming iPad 3, detailing a replacement microphone flex cable with a different design from the iPad 2.

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.

Component leaks aren't uncommon in the run-up to new Apple product releases, but as always, take this with a 9.7-inch grain of salt, as a lot of those purported parts for next-generation iOS devices don't always mean what they suggest.

It's also been rumored that the next iPad will come packed with a full Retina display. Given the chances of these new parts entailing an all-new design are about as accurate as flipping a coin, we'll just have to wait until Apple actually announces the thing.
