Just a week ago, Apple made a couple official launches – the Apple iPhone 5, and its new operating system – the iOS 6. But Apple’s products do not come into the market like a flash, as the story about the launch, the rumors, speculations keep spreading all round the year. Just as the trend continues, there have been several talks about the Apple iPad Mini, and now there are some exclusive leaked pictures of the same. It’s similar to the normal iPad, but just made smaller.
The images spoke out almost everything, except for a mysterious black spot on the back panel, and the operating system version which seems to be the previous one although Apple recently launched the latest iOS 6 operating system. The bottom part has got the slot for the new Lightning port that Apple has introduced for the iPhone 5 recently. The news about the iPad Mini has kept the users happy after a quite disappointing launch of the iPhone 5, which had nothing much to boast about.
The expected launch of the iPad Mini would be in 2013, as Apple has got an event in the end of the year but that is usually meant for the upgrades and announcements, but the gadget launches are expected to be done in the start of the year. There is a black spot on the back panel on the top left corner, which could be the camera in a similar placement as in the Samsung Galaxy Tab, 7-inch version.
Though these are the leaked pictures, there is no official word from Apple on whether there is actually something the company is working on, or whether these pictures are of a real working tablet device from Apple.
The recent event by Apple saw the launch of the Apple iPhone 5, the Apple iPod Touch 5th Gen, and the Apple iPod Nano 7th Gen along with the refreshed version of the iOS, i.e. the iOS 6.
If Apple is coming out with the 7-inch version of the iPad very soon, that would be the lone strong competitor against the Samsung Galaxy Tab, which currently holds a strong position, thanks to the below-average 7-inch tablet devices by many manufacturers who attempted but couldn’t bring out one well productive device.
