Report: Retina iPad mini 2 to Debut Alongside iPad Air 2

But now a new report from Mac Otakara [Google Translate] claims the second-generation Retina iPad mini does indeed appear set for an introduction alongside the iPad Air at this Thursday’s press event.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had expressed some uncertainty in the past about an iPad mini upgrade for this year, saying that it possibly might receive an update such as a Touch ID sensor, “if any.” Another report claimed the Retina iPad mini 2 would launch early in 2015, just ahead of the much-rumored “iPad Pro.”

If the report is correct, Apple may also update its Smart Case and Smart Cover line of accessories to include new colors and a tweaked design to ensure compatibility with the new tablets.

Apple is expected to debut the iPad Air 2 – and possibly an updated Retina iPad mini – alongside updated iMacs, including a 27-inch model sporting a Retina display, at their event, coming up on Thursday, October 16. MacTrast will be live-tweeting the event, with all the information about the announcements immediately following the event.

    Wait a minute. I don’t think I get this. iPhone users demanded a bigger phone, so Apple came out with two bigger sized iPhones; iPad users, however, wanted a smaller iPad so they created the iPad mini? This does not make ANY sense to me.

    Of course, now the bigger iPad is on the way (13 or something inches?) I guess now you can have a small, mid, and big version of everything. Just to “satisfy” the masses.

    Just wait a year or two! You will see a small, medium, and big size iWatch. Actually, they DO make two sizes already, don’t they?
