Earlier this week, case manufacturer Tactus shared a photo of a case reportedly designed for the fifth-generation iPad, once again showing that the device is expected to be smaller than the existing iPad and take design cues from the iPad mini.
Yesterday, the company shared some photo's of what is said to be the rear shell of Apple's rumored lower-cost iPhone. In line with previous rumors, the part appears to be manufactured from plastic.
The part fits with all the rumours about it's size, shape and that it is made from plastic. Case manufacturers have a record of manufacturing cases based on rumours and not necessarily information from Apple, however they have been correct at times.
