Apple Posts iOS 6.0.1 Downloads for Cellular-Capable iPad Mini and Fourth-Generation iPad




Apple has just posted new downloads of iOS 6.0.1 for the forthcoming cellular-capable models of the iPad mini and fourth-generation iPad. The downloads, which arrive as Build 10A8426, signal that Apple is preparing to launch the devices, which are scheduled for a "Mid-November" debut in the United States. We've seen signs that Apple will be delivering pre-orders of these devices as soon as Friday, November 16.

The new downloads include:

iPad mini
- iPad2,6
- iPad2,7

Fourth-generation iPad
- iPad3,5
- iPad3,6

Apple posted downloads of iOS 6.0 for the Wi-Fi models of the iPad mini and fourth-generation iPad three days before they launched on November 2.

So this isn't for regular, non-cellular iPad Mini's? Why not? What features will those users be missing out on?

Looks like the Wi-Fi model already received this update...

As soon as Nov 16? I thought they were already out. I already got a chance to play with a demo unit in my campus tech store. Absolutely loved the design, and if it had retina then I'm sure I would've bought one.

You only have to wait less than a year, don't worry.

The WiFi-only models are out now.

The Cellular-enabled models aren't yet available.

The iPad mini should also be able to have phone service if it's going to possibly replace car systems.

I received the same notice! Mine was supposed to be delivered on the 26th, now it's bumped up to the 23rd. Black 32 GB AT&T for me.

Why is the forth gen iPad still using the 3,x identifier? They didn't make it 4,x? Just curious if anyone knows.

Interesting... mine (Verizon 32GB) says it'll ship within 5 business days, and delivers on November 21.

I am SO stoked!!!

Maybe i'm crazy but whats the point in an article that states downloads have been posted without actually explaining where they have been posted?
