Apple will hold a special event on October 22 to mark the coming of updated iPads. The iPad 5 is expected to be slimmer and a lot thinner than its predecessor. On the other hand, the supposed iPad Mini 2 is said to have thicker body due to the fact that it might pack Retina Display.
Whether iPad Mini 2 will have HD display or not is one question on everyone's mind. The rumor mills have been going strong. Some have speculated that, users won't get see the iPad Mini 2 with Retina Display on October 22.
The upcoming Apple iPad Mini 2 is said to be marginally improved over its predecessor. Few days back, a leaked image of the case made for the next-gen iPad Mini showed that the iPad Mini 2 would get a thicker body.
Now according to a new leaked image appeared from China, it appears that the iPad Mini 2 will likely to be thinner than the iPad Mini. The Apple iPad Mini 2 might not have Retina Display, giving off the wrong signals. The current-generation iPad Mini is 7.1mm thick, while the forthcoming iPad Mini will be 6.81mm in terms of thickness.
That indicates that the iPad Mini 2 will be even thinner than its predecessor. Hence, there are very little chances to see the iPad Mini 2 having Retina Display.
Meanwhile, the street is abuzz with rumors of Apple planning to introduce the iPad Mini 2 in Gold, Silver and Space Grey colors. Moreover, it would not be a surprise to see the iPad Mini 2 to sport the TouchID fingerprint scanner.
Apple's special October 22 event will primarily be centered around a new version of iPad 5, iPad Mini 2 and MacBook Pro with Intel Haswell processor. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
