Those who are waiting for the next iteration of the iPad Mini with Retina display might just have to wait a little longer as reports are saying that it will come out in the third-quarter of this year.
According reports, Apple is already preparing to release, not one, but two iPad Minis. The first one, which will come out in Q3 of this year will have the much awaited Retina display. The second one, which has a speculated early 2014 release, will also have a Retina display but with the addition of an updated processor.
“We see two refreshes coming. One in the second half of this year, then one in Q1 of 2014. The Q1 device will have a Retina display plus an updated processor.” says NPD DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim. Shim also speculates that Apple will utilize the iPhone 5’s low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) display technology for the next-gen iPad Minis.
