Usually we get our iPad Mini leaks from Nowhereelse.fr or Macotakara.jp, but this time they come from Ukraine, via UkrainiPhone, that has some exclusive leaked photos of the new 7.85 inch iPad Mini. This is the first time we see the device pictured in black and the photos were supposedly taken by a source “close to the Apple production line”.
These pics match the previous ones, showing the Lightning dock connector, two speakers at the bottom and a 3G nano SIM tray this time. Just like on the regular iPad, the audio jack is at the top this time and there’s also a plastic cover for the WiFi antenna on board. The material of the back panel is just like the one of the iPhone 5, anodized aluminum, so the new device will adopt the design lines of the new iPhone. There’s also a pretty slim bezel to the sides of this smaller iPad.
Everything fits the leaks from before and considering how often we’ve seen such leaks lately, I guess we must be getting closer to the launch of the product. It’s rumored to happen sometime at the end of this month, or in early November, the latest. If everything goes as planned, Apple will have a hugely successful product selling this Christmas, one that’s not an iPhone.
