Apple iPad Mini 4 leaked, indicating major changes in design

WASHINGTON: It has been a quite year from Apple so far but now thing are getting bit spicier as Apple’s next generation iPad Mini has leaked indicating major changes.

The iPad Mini is expected to launch later this year but if we take a look at the leaked image, it looks like Apple is all set to launch the device in a few months rather than waiting for the fourth quarter of the year.

Snapped by @onleaks and shared by, the photos show a metal frame with an Apple-shaped cut-out and several clues to what’s in store next for the iPad mini.


Just like the iPad Air 2, the next iPad mini apparently won’t have a mute/orientation switch, previously located above the volume buttons and replaced by a small microphone hole.

The newly designed frame of the device may not have big changes but a few are expected.

Apple loves to add small touches and bump the price up, but this chassis might be for a true next-gen iPad mini.

Unfortunately simply staring at the tablet’s metal shell doesn’t tell us much else for sure. The large cut-out is apparently for an LTE modem, and the holes for speakers and the lightning port are where you’d expect them.

Apple has no major events coming up – that we know of at least – but if there’s one thing the company has proved, it’s that it’s hard to predict. You never know where the new iPad mini might pop up next.
