Apple expected to unveil the 2nd Gen iPad Mini at an upcoming event this month. The 2nd Gen iPad Mini widely said to be getting a Retina Display screen. The Retina iPad Mini will serve the users in larger numbers. The Retina iPad Mini rumors have suggested over time that Apple is working on the display of iPad Mini, and this year we will finally get a Retina powered iPad Mini model.
While, it has confirmed by sources that the 2nd Gen iPad Mini will feature a Retina Display. A new report surfaced this morning suggesting that Retina Display will require Apple to make some changes in iPad Mini design profile. The design changes are not significant, but similar to iPad 3 design profile changes. The Retina Display requires Apple to make a Retina iPad Mini bit thicker than original iPad Mini. The report comes from a Japanese blog, who has gotten their hands on several 2nd gen iPad Mini cases at gadget shows.
According to their report, the third-party cases are carrying different dimensions for 2nd-Generation iPad Mini. Yes, the thickness of 2nd Gen iPad Mini will increase to 7.5mm from 7.2mm. The vendor’s case also suggested that the new iPad Mini will 0.2mm wider from the original iPad Mini model.
If you ask me the couple of millimeters change in design profile is not significant for end-users, but the thickness is a worth note for us because Apple is tend to release slimmer devices, and they perform every step to eliminate the need of thickening a device from older dimensions. You must be wondering, why it will thick from older-generation?
A Retina Display? Or something else?
We say, the Battery!
The Retina Display on iPad Mini is going to juice more battery and power on iPad mini, and therefore Apple needs a powerful battery package in 2nd Gen iPad Mini to power a Retina Display on screen for users.
