DigiTimes changes course, claims Retina iPad Mini will launch in fall
It looks like DigiTimes is reversing course on its earlier report and now reporting the Retina iPad Mini will be released in October, basing that information off of the timeline for LG’s new Retina displays that would ship with the new device.
The sources also added that LG is reportedly making new headway in producing Retina panel technology for use in the next-generation iPad mini, and expects to ship about 2-3 million units a month in preparation for Apple’s expected October release date.
At this point, it looks like we have no solid information about the release date, despite this report’s claim of October 2013. DigiTimes has been extremely hit-or-miss, so it would be unwise to take this as complete verification.
