A microphone mic flex cable ribbon leaked earlier this month by TVC-Mall also suggests that the iPad 3 will feature a cosmetic redesign, which may include a thicker case in order to make room for a new high-resolution display.
The iPad 3 could launch as soon as March or April and the company is rumored to have an “iPad mini” in the works as well. A few more images of the iPad 3′s purported 30-pin connector follow after the break.

An image iPad 3 Display Panel Photo also was posted to a Korean Apple forum may represent the rumored high-definition iPad 3 display.
Recent rumors have pointed towards the iPad 3 featuring a retina-resolution IGZO panel, which is likely to be manufactured by Sharp and released in early 2012.
The image below shows the alleged pre-production iPad 3 Display Panel Photo as well as what is believed to be a comparison photo with the iPad 2. The show shows a new configuration of the ribbon cables which may indicate a new internal configuration for power or data transfer, necessary to support the increased resolution on the iPad 3.
