The Apple iPad Mini launched almost nine months ago. The Apple iPad Mini 2 will likely feature a high-resolution Retina screen made by Samsung and is expected to arrive in Q4 2013.
According to The Wall Street Journal, Apple is also going to offer multiple color backplates for the iPad Mini. Some of the colors that it is expected to have include slate, silver, purple, pink, yellow, green, and red.
Apple will either test this feature internally and will release the Retina iPad Mini this time or the non-Retina and Retina version will be launched at different price points. The new Apple iPad Mini is expected to have an A6 based chip that will have faster load times.
