There is more indication that the second-generation iPad mini won’t launch until the third quarter of this year. CNYes is reporting that Apple has not seen a significant decline in iPad mini sales since it debuted late last year. As a result, Apple has no reason to release a new model at this time. The next-generation iPad mini, which was originally expected this spring, will almost certainly include a Retina display. However, its form factor is expected to be largely unchanged. CNYes suggests that the fifth-generation iPad will launch alongside the iPad mini. This model will include a redesigned aluminum alloy metal chassis, with a thinner bezel and lighter frame, according to the report. On Friday, CNET reported that the much-rumored iPad mini with Retina display would launch during the second half of 2013. Others had predicted that a new iPad mini would launch in March or April. As usual, we’ll keep you updated. See also: Leaked Rear Panel Images Suggest The iPad 5 Will Look A Lot Like The iPad mini.
