Apple’s second-generation iPad mini tablet is expected to be unveiled next month and according to a pair of leaked photos, the tablet will seemingly be made available in the same gold and white color combination as Apple’s new flagship iPhone 5s. Chinese-language ZOL, which is owned by CBS Interactive, on Friday published a pair of images it claims reveal the new Retina iPad mini in gold. The photos were first published by a user on the site’s forum, and they also seemingly confirm that the new iPad mini will include Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint scanner, also like the iPhone 5s. Earlier reports suggested Apple’s next-generation iPad and iPad mini would not include Touch ID and these photos certainly could be fake, but Apple undoubtedly plans to bring the technology to its tablet lineup at some point. Apple’s Retina iPad mini is expected to be unveiled alongside a new completely redesigned fifth-generation iPad early next month and both tablets are expected to be released soon after. We have also seen the tablet pictured in Apple’s new space gray color, so it looks like the new mini may indeed feature more changes than just an upgraded display. Images of the purported gold Retina iPad mini follows below.
