iPad Mini 2 Release Date Delayed

A new report claims that Apple won’t release its second-generation iPad mini with a Retina display until next year. According to Taiwan-based news site Economic Daily News, shortages with Retina display panels have forced Apple to delay the next iPad mini’s launch. Apple was originally planning to release its second-generation iPad mini in the fourth quarter this year according to the site, but the smaller tablet is now reportedly on track for an early 2014 debut. Economic Daily News also suggests that Apple may release a non-Retina iPad mini alongside the high-resolution tablet at a lower price point. Earlier reports suggest that the second-generation iPad mini would be equipped with Retina display with a 2048 x 1536-pixel resolution, a dual-core A6X processor and an 8-megapixel rear camera.
