Over the past several months, numerous cases and physical mockups for Apple's rumored "iPad mini" have leaked, offering what many have believed will be a good approximation of what the device will actually look like. But according to a brief report from Mac Otakara, those case manufacturers may now need to shift gears as one company has reported that it has halted production on its iPad mini cases due to an unspecified design change.
Case designs have historically been quite accurate in predicting the overall design of Apple's products, with the major exception of 2011's tapered "iPhone 5" design that never came to pass as Apple ultimately released the iPhone 4S with essentially the same design as the iPhone 4.Large OEM mobile accessory maker has stopped their iPad mini case production, because the form of iPad mini seems to be changed.
Source told me the round shape seems changed, then case designed based on leaked iPad mini may be dropped.
