After yesterday’s report of a second fall Apple media event, scheduled for mid-October, new images have surfaced of what are allegedly iPad Mini parts. Today, UkrainianiPhone posted numerous photos of a back housing and a white glass front panel (the digitizer assembly).
Additionally, the site included an image of the proposed iPad Mini’s LCD – however, the display appears highly reminiscent of the screen used in Amazon’s Kindle Fire.
UkrainianiPhone also annotated the top image to highlight certain portions of the rear housing including the following, a headphone jack on the top left (instead of adopting the iPhone 5’s repositioned bottom headphone jack), a plastic piece on the top for cellular connectivity, an area designated for Apple’s new lightning connector port and a nano-SIM card slot.
Aligning with earlier rumors, the white front panel depicts a narrower side bezel to conserve on overall device size.
As previously mentioned, Apple is reportedly planning to send invitations to select members of the press on October 10th for a media event, which may be designated to revealing the rumored iPad Mini. Stay tuned for complete coverage on Apple and any media events they might have scheduled for October.
