    I don't really know if someone posted that already.

    Apple Online Store Mini Dock
    And for those who want to see pics, here we go.
    Pictures :)

    I wouldn't say its fake but what do you say guys?
    I am quiet satisfied with the design & colors of the converters but I prefer the silver model ;)

    And by the way, that would be the first official pic of the next gen iPhone published by Apple Inc. :D isn't it?

    It's about time Apple gets rid of that huge, bulbous, ugly dock connector. Pretty hypocritical of them to cling to it for as long as they did.

    talk about lack of security if they are leaking these things on their own website.

    It's fake. It's a too perfect leak. Also notice the smaller iPad in the bigger iPad: Apple will use two separate icons for that. An iPad mini wouldn't be a third generation iPad mini - it would be a first generation iPad mini.

    Also, the link he provides (http://store.apple.com/us/product/MD594ZM/A) doesn't work. You could argue Apple has taken it offline, but Googling the URL shows that it's fake: Google is quite accurate and would normally have cached the webpage (their search bot works really, really good).

    I agree. And when's the last time someone posted a video just to show a website? Clearly fake. They knew if they posted screenshots it be obvious that it's a mock-up, so they went one step further to video-trickery to make it seem real.

    Also, wouldn't that adapter be blocking the speaker & microphone (not saying that makes it fake but does seem odd)?

    EDIT: It's supposed to be US version of the Apple site but the UK word "Colour" is used instead of US "Color". Could be a typo on Apple's part, but we already know this is fake.

    I didn't really see such a big difference on there but thats only cause there is no iPhone 4S for comparison next to it. I would say the iPod Touch 6G is also in the same screen & body size so its hard to see any difference.

    I can't imagine they would accidentally leak something like this..

    Would it be difficult to fake a video of a webpage like that?

    So it just so happens that an unknown blog is the only 1 who stumbled upon this "leak"?

    Riiighhtt. They're trying to get their name out there. No one else found this but them.....

    Looks SUPER real tho.

    Not saying this is all real, and not faked. Just arguing that it's plausible, and could happen.

    Who's to say it's called 'iPad Mini'. It could very well be simply called "iPad" with 7.8" screen.

    There are already several rumors that the iPad 3rd gen will get a minor refresh. New dock connector to speed integration, new IGZO display to reduce power consumption and thus battery size and be thinner and it will return to the iPad 2's thickness.

    So this falls inline with that. iPad (3rd generation) (late 2012) (7.8" and 9.7")

    I was referring to the fact that a smaller iPad is shown (I just called it iPad mini (I'm not saying it will be called like that)), and it says "3rd generation". A smaller iPad wouldn't be a third generation iPad.

    We have 3rd gen (early 2012) and rumored 3rd gen (late 2012) that adds new dock connector, Sharp LCD, and smaller screen variant. It doesn't really seem far fetched.

    I'm talking about that SMALLER iPad. It says the smaller iPad is also the third generation.

    IT IS NOT - Have you seen two generations of smaller iPads? I don't think so.

    It'a fake, sorry bud.
