If there is one thing that we can all agree on is that Apple knows how to keep a secret. The company has not revealed yet anything regarding its upcoming lineup, however, thanks to some leaks here and there, at least we can have a rough idea. The iPad Mini seems to be scheduled for launch after the iPhone 5, with its release date set for October.
iPad Mini Release Date
Now we do not know anything as a fact, however, according to the latest rumors going around, it seems that the iPad Mini will hit the market in October. This would mean that the first upcoming Apple event (it looks like there will be two such events) is dedicated to the iPhone 5 entirely. We already heard some rumors regarding the iPad Mini release date being scheduled for October, so everything seems to be already set up.
Up until now, the rumored specifications for the iPad Mini include a 7.85-inch display with an alleged resolution of 1024 x 768. We don’t know much else apart from this, along with rumors suggesting that we will be getting a camera as well thrown into the mix.
The reason for this delayed release is mostly connected to the iPhone 5. It is apparent that Apple does not wish to understate the importance of the iPad Mini by launching it at the same time as their iPhone 5. October seems reasonable, as this could lineup with the introduction of the latest products from the company like their iPod lineup.
This would make sense, since this would highlight the iPad Mini when put next to the rest of the gadgets launching at the same time, while still leave enough room between it and the iPhone 5. We already saw a few images with cases appearing for the iPad Mini and some leaks regarding its design, but nothing official just yet.
Thanks Mobile Syrup for letting us know how, according to rumors, Apple will handle the iPad Mini release date.
