According to multiple sources Apple will launch the long awaited Retina iPad Mini on November 12. The screenshot above “which has been shown to service providers” shows that Apple plans to launch the tablet in the United States, Australia, China (Wi-Fi only), Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, and Singapore.
It is already November 12 in a number of countries and Apple didn’t send out any press release, announcing the launch of the Retina iPad Mini.
While the quiet release of an iPad is unusual for the company, it could be due to reports of severe supply constraints of the Retina iPad mini. According to reports, display problems have caused serious production issues, and it is unlikely Apple will have enough supply of the tablet to meet demand.
The new iPad mini is a little bit thicker and heavier than the original iPad Mini, due to the Retina display with a 2048 x 1536 resolution, along with an A7 processor. The entry-level 16 GB Wi-Fi model Retina iPad Mini will sell for $399.
