Chinese tech site Bolopad posted alleged pictures of the upcoming iPad Mini, which is currently in production in China ahead of an October release. While historically it was uncommon for Apple devices to be leaked to the media ahead of launch, the accuracy of the leaks for the iPhone 5 suggest that this might be the real deal, and the pictures may give us a glimpse of what’s to come with the iPad Mini.
As has been rumored previously, the iPad Mini literally looks like a smaller version of the iPad, complete with a 7.85″ display and iOS 6. The iPad Mini will utilize the Lightning connector Apple unveiled with the iPhone 5, and the rest of the chassis looks almost identical to the device’s larger counterpart.
Whether these leaked pictures are real or not, we’re just weeks away from Apple’s official unveiling of the iPad Mini. With a rumored October release, we should start seeing invites for the Apple iPad Mini launch event hit our inboxes in the next few weeks.
