AUO already working on panels for this year's iPad mini edition
Apple is reportedly tapping Taiwan's AU Optronics for the display on this year's iPad mini edition. Some of the 7.9" tablet units are now equipped with AUO's AH-VA screens as well, but Apple also sources panels from other suppliers for its affordable slate.
Rumors abound that the 2013 iPad mini will feature a high-resolution screen, though the exact pixel density speculation is contradictory. Alternatively, Apple might just bump the resolution a bit without resorting to the Retina Display moniker, as there are many other areas it can tout as improvements in the iPad mini, such as a new design and a faster processor.
