    Can't help but think if this was genuine and the screen is in place, they would have had it powered up to confirm retina & specs...

    retina, A7/M7, touch ID and i'm sold. hopefully, cuz ipad 5 can have the A7x/M7. i'm not sure if the mini will have the Touch ID. if anything it would go to the ipad 5 but i would love it to go to the mini 2. retina is a must too.

    i bought the gold 5s... can't wait for the mini 2. i would probably rock it in space gray.. just have those 3 specs and apple can take my credit card LOL. PLEASE.

    I'm sure the touch id will be across all iOS devices and possibly the Mac book pro.

    OP you beat me to it! ;)

    "And Yes Touch ID is coming to the iPad Mini 2
    — Sonny Dickson (@SonnyDickson)"

    Ok, assuming this report is true:
    It answers:Colors, Processor(A7/M7), Ram (2g IP5, 1g IPm2) and Touch ID in both lines

    What we still don't know: Price? (discontinuing 16gb), iPad mini Retina display?
    The two of the biggest questions I think most of us want to know!

    Here's hoping some leaks will spring up and answer these questions for us soon.

    I would be surprised to see all those improvements in just one generation. Plus, I don't think one year of battery technology improvements will be enough to handle all that extra hardware.

    The original iPad mini, I believe, was a very rushed product. I don't think Apple intended on producing a smaller iPad until they saw other manufacturers were doing it and having success. So they rushed a smaller iPad through design and production. They probably didn't have time to give it as much thought and care as they would have wanted, but they had to push it into market so they wouldn't lose share to other companies.

    Not so much rushed, just deliberately lower spec so they didn't over commit on a new product. Look at the iPad 1 - good product though it was, it lacked a bit with regards to RAM etc. Now Apple now the mini is an absolute success, I would expect them to flesh it out as a product. They will hold back on specs & features knowing full well if things take off that they can then bring out a higher spec device.

    Exactly, would seem like verification of a retina would be just as important.

    Does this mean the full sized iPad should get gold as well? Hopefully

    It looks beautiful, and while the effect might be accurate, I think the image is a rendering. The background is just so clean.

    I'm intrigued to see what they do to differentiate the mini and regular iPad. I've owned the iPad 1, 2, 3 and now I use a Mini. I love the mini as it's size works very well for me and it does all that I need, while retina is nice I've not (personally) felt it is critical.

    What strikes me is that there is differentiation between them right now, the full iPad has Retina, bigger screen and if I remember correctly a slightly faster processor. If the mini gets all of the goodies such that the only real difference is the size and 1Gb of RAM wouldn't mini sales significantly erode sales of the regular iPad?

    It'll be interesting to see what happens with sales if the full and mini are almost identical in terms of spec, will they still maintain the $170 price difference and will the Mini overtake the regular iPad?

    A7 on a Retina iPad doesn't make any sense; It has to be an X Version, because these have stronger GPU Units (IIRC they have more GPU cores). You need those for the 4 times more pixels. It could be clocked lower though, so it wouldn't use so much battery.

    If only it were true.... for myself I really hope it is (but of course I have about 1% confidence in this particular 'leak').

    I for one would jump at a retina mini in gold/white.

    Possibly not. I'm sure the iPhone 5 keynote said the A7 had twice the graphical power of the A6 and was on a par with the iPad 4. If this is the case the A7 could power a retina iPad. The A7x may be used purely in the iPad 5 as a flagship model.

    Wonder if it's possible that Apply is moving to 64bit apps in all of their lineup making it possible that the mini will support an A7 chip?

    The gold makes me think that their might be a C lineup which will be priced as the cheaper option, A7 and Retina upgrade only over current gen - plastic moulding might be the reason it will be priced like the current gen mini .... ?

    Well Kuo predicts an A7x for box iPad Mini and the full-sized, so that makes sense.

    We need to consider the possibilty that the new iPads may have home buttons that look like the 5s', yet may lack TouchID...
