New photos of internal components for the rumored Apple iPad mini have started to appear online. iPhone part seller witrigs has added a new listing on the site – ‘Earphone Jack Flex for iPad Mini’. The replacement part is made available in both White and Black color, igniting speculation that Apple could introduce iPad Mini in both the colors in a rumored event next month. In addition, the product description states that the parts are compatible with iPad Mini 8GB/16GB. Does that mean Apple will launch only two models of iPad Mini – 8/16 Gigs?
After close analysis, these parts lend credibility to the belief that Apple is ready to launch a smaller, potentially cheaper iPad.
This isn’t the first credible rumor we’ve seen suggesting a headphone jack for iPad Mini, as supposedly leaked parts also surfaced two separate times last month. But this part doesn’t sits well with them. We are, however, not 100 percent convinced that the part is legit. And, if you have an opinion on the above part, feel free to post it in the comments.
