Rumour: New iPad Minis Getting "Space Grey" Custom Paintshop Jobs

By Gary Cutlack on at

Thought the non-stop drip-drip of Apple leakages might finish now the iPhone 5S and 5C are out? No way. It's now time for people in China who don't care about their job contracts to start sending out furtive photos of the new iPads, with one spy shot suggesting the iPad Mini 2 will see similar colour options to the iPhone 5S.

The particular image shows the backside of an iPad Mini 2 in Apple's newly invented "Space Grey" colouration, the exciting new colour that many commenters on the internet have taken to calling "grey." There's no word on an official champagne version yet, though.

The vague rumour that Apple may announce some new tablet and desktop hardware on October 15th still stands, so there's perhaps just one month to go to eBay your current-gen iPad Mini before prices plummet. [Nowhereelse via 9to5Mac]
