Apple To Release The iPad Mini 3 In A Matter Of Weeks?

Apple could release the iPad Mini 3 as soon as October - if sources are to be believed.

Trusted Reviews reports that an analyst at KGI Securities, Ming-chi Kuo has confirmed his suspicions that Apple will launch the next iPad Mini much sooner than expected.

“We previously thought Apple would not release a new version of the iPad mini this year, but we now think Apple will launch an upgraded version with the same form factor,”

It's believed that Apple will unveil a new iPad Air as well as an upgraded version of the iPad Mini with Retina Display.

Suspicions are that Apple will launch a new iPad Mini Air and keep the current iPad Mini with Retina Display on sale until the end of 2015.

This would allow Apple to make significant changes to the current one while still hitting the lower price point that Apple manages with its non-Retina iPad Mini.

There's no word on specs but expectations are that Apple will make the new iPad Mini Retina much thinner while still retaining the same 7.9-inch Retina Display.
