Earlier today some images of an alleged iPad 3 home button from China were leaked – two comparison photos of an iPad 2 home button and the “iPad 3″ home button are embedded above.
At first glance, the changes between the two buttons might be overlooked but, upon closer examination, the alterations become apparent.
The most notable change is that the (alleged) iPad 3 home button’s back connector surface is smaller than its predecessor’s.
Additionally, the entire button is smaller and that in combination with the redesigned backing could suggest that Apple is trying to make room for a bigger screen on the iPad 3.
With that said, stay tuned for more news and rumors related to the iPad 3.
