A report is claiming that Apple is getting ready for the production of the follow-up to the iPad Mini. The report also says that the difference between the current iPad Mini and its follow-up is a retina display.
The news comes to us courtesy of the Wall Street Journal. The business news site reports, “Apple Inc.’s suppliers are gearing up for mass production of a new iPad Mini in the fourth quarter that will likely feature a high-resolution screen fromSamsung Electronics Co., people familiar with the matter said, a sign of the difficulty Apple faces as it seeks to reduce its reliance on its biggest rival.
“Apple is working with suppliers in Asia on its next iPad Mini with a high-resolution “retina” display, unlike the current iPad Mini, which comes with a lower-resolution screen, the people said. The size of the new tablet is expected to be the same as the current 7.9-inch model, which was released in November. The U.S. company also has been thinking about offering multiple colors of back covers for the new tablet, they said.”
Since Apple is yet to officially announce details on the successor of the iPad Mini, treat this like any other rumour for now. Stay tuned for further updates.
