Leaks shift from mockups to actual parts

An online parts vendor is claiming to have headphone jacks and flex cables for Apple's unreleased iPad mini, notes Nowhereelse.fr. The jacks notably come in black and white versions, suggesting that Apple plans to offer two colors for the device as it does for the iPhone and full-sized iPad. They also appear to solidify a transition in the nature of leaks for the Mini; whereas early ones revolved mostly around mockups, people are now claiming access to production parts.

On Wednesday the Wall Street Journal backed up reports that the new tablet is already in manufacturing. Apple is expected to announce the hardware as soon as the 17th, and release it by early November. Little has been revealed in terms of specifications, but it should have a 7.85-inch screen, and use the Lightning connector introduced with the iPhone 5 and newer iPods.
