Rumor: The Retina iPad Mini May Not Be Coming Until 2014

If you are someone who has held off on buying an iPad Mini because you are waiting for Apple to release a version of the small tablet with a Retina display, this news may disappoint you.

A report out of Taiwan-based Economic Daily News and recapped by MacRumors is suggesting that a shortage of Retina display panels is pushing back plans for an iPad Mini Retina until at least early 2014.

According to MacRumors, analysts still suspect that Apple will release an update to the iPad Mini this year, with the new version being a slightly thinner, non-Retina version, but a new Mini with an ultra high-resolution display likely won’t be coming out for a few more months.

    The retina mini is here, but I’ve noticed that it’s a little too thick for my Mini 9 keyboard case. Does Zagg plan to make another version that allows for the extra width of the new retina mini?
