Apple producing iPad mini Retinas at similar volumes to original iPad mini

Apple producing iPad mini Retinas at similar volumes to original iPad mini
Assuming that we are a bit under a month away from the announcement for the new iPad mini Retina, that would put us safely in the window where Apple has already ramped up production in order to meet demand when the device actually hits store shelves. It is widely assumed that the September 10th event will be iPhone 5S (and probably iPod) only, leaving the iPad mini Retina to an announcement later in September or in October.

It seems that IHS iSuppli has been taking a look at the production line for Apple's new tablet and has been generating some data on what we should expect. And, IHS iSuppli has told CNET that "Based [what] we are seeing in the [production] pipeline...The volumes are similar to the iPad Mini that we saw in Q4 of last year." 

This is especially interesting, because it could point to when Apple will release the device. If Apple has produced about the same volumes as we saw last year by this point, it could mean Apple is aiming for the same November release for the new iPad mini Retina. 

The iPad mini Retina is expected to match the current 9.7-inch iPad 4 in resolution at 2,048x1,536. On the iPad mini's 7.9-inch display, that would equal a pixel density of around 332PPI, which is about the same as the new Nexus 7.

Not "revolutionary", as with all Apple products, just improved screen resolution. They'll just need to rely on the iFans, who don't have a tad bit of clue about technology, to keep buying anything with the bitten apple picture on it.

You sound upset bro. Tell us how you really feel. Did you get bullied by an Apple genius while inside an Apple store? Do you get nightmares about it at night?

" Did you get bullied by an Apple genius while inside an Apple store? "

Actually, I have never been in the Apple store, I don't waste time looking at and buying products which Apple has been ripping off from other companies. They did not revolutionise at all.

"Apple genius" is an oxymoron.

You sure waste a lot of time posting. It's really funny looking at these apple haters. They LOVE posting on every apple article.

I was being a bit more generous than the Apple fans. They actually think that the Apple products are the best in the category when they're far from that, and start hating other companies/brands, etc. That's not the only reason why I hate Apple.

So they don't improve their products to better the overall user experience? No software updates, spec updates, nothing? Their entire concern is to sale over 1 million? Lol! I sure hope that the 80 attached to your user name is not the year you were born lol.

That 80 is the market share of Android. He should have put 14, instead.

What part of the article talks about the mini being revolutionary? It's a well welcomed and needed upgrade which will also include upgraded internals to make it more competitive in the mid-sized tablet arena. As for people only buying it because of the name and not knowing anything about tech.....ignorant comment. I own an iPad tablet along with my HTC One and Nexus 4 and I wouldn't have it any other way. IMHO the iPad offers a better tablet experience and that is why I love my it. On my phones, I love Android for it's flexibility (different screen sizes and OEM UIs). So you should get a clue. People have different motives for buying whatever but it's their money so worry more about yourself and your money and mind your business about what everybody else doing.

Apple should move to 16:9 aspect ratio...it'll make iPad mini little thin and easy to hold in one hand.

I know, all the hype about how amazing it is to hold this thing in one hand and it looks extremely uncomfortable to hold in comparison to a 16:9 or 16:10 7 incher. They do it because it works better in both landscape and portrait though.

if the ipad 5 has a lower PPI than the next-gen ipad mini, then i am going to go and buy the upcoming nexus 10 (even though i love my ipad 2).........
