    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?

    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.

    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.:confused:

    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?
