I guess these hardware leaks may have proven me wrong. I’ve had my doubts about the iPad mini’s existence, but these new parts could turn out to be legitimate.
9to5Mac reports that Ukrainianiphone.com recently got their hands on these parts from “a source who visited the factory in Asia.” These parts certainly look like the real deal, and it was also rumored that Apple will be sending out invitations to an iPad mini keynote on Oct.10, 2012.
According to 9to5Mac:
Notables include the plastic spacer bars, which Apple has traditionally used for 3G and 4G radio equipment, and an Audio jack at the bottom like the new iPhones and iPods and nano SIM tray that “broke off during disassembly”.
What do you think about these parts? Does the iPad mini exist?
