Apple’s Parts Leaks

Everybody complained that the iPhone 5 announcement was boring because all of the rumors were correct. And that’s because all the rumor sites had access to parts coming out of the Chinese manufacturers.

So answer me this: if there is, indeed, a new smaller iPad coming out in the next month, why haven’t we seen any of those parts leaking yet?

Does the iPhone just overshadow everything and we will start to see those parts appearing next week? Is there no financial incentive for the Chinese manufacturers to “leak” those parts yet? Did Apple learn from the iPhone and found ways of “doubling down on secrecy” for the new iPad?

Or, if I may put the tin foil hat on for a moment, is there no new iPad?

I doubt it’s that last option but, hey, you never know.
