Well-known Apple supply chain insider Sonny Dickson is once again back at his game, and this time, rather than leaking more iPhone 5C or iPhone 5S parts, Dickson has posted some fairly convincing high-quality pictures of what seems to be the rear panel of the upcoming 2nd-gen iPad mini in the Space Grey color introduced with the iPhone 5S.
The ‘Space Grey’ casing is pictured from all angles – and a separate post on SonnyDickson.com even shows it alongside the 5th-gen iPad rear panel. A few highlights can be seen in the gallery above. To see the full collection of images – including additional leaked components, such as what appears to be the home button assembly, head on over to the original post at SonnyDickson.com.
Overall, the photos show more or less exactly what we expect to see after months of rumors and various reports – the design is almost identical to the current iPad mini, with the exception of additional color options. The device is likely set for introduction at a media event in mid-October, alongside a revised 5th-generation iPad. The only question that remains is: Are you ready?
