‘iPad mini’ rumors have been there from couple of years regardless of the 7 tablet form- factor by Apple Inc. Well there are obvious limits to how close elements can be on the screen before users can’t touch accurately but the minimum specification is believed to be of 10 inch screen in order to provide a high- quality interface. It is yet to get clear why rumors of a smaller iPad having a screen about 7.85” still keep coming now and then. According to the reports Apple has received samples of 1024 * 768 7.85” screens and it is believe to commence mass production of the said device somewhere around this fall. Though people are hard to find any logic behind this speculated possibility by Apple but AppAdvice tries to divulge why the 7.85 “ size is not as logical as it seems.
As far as iPad Mini features are concerned, not much information is available right now but one feature which is also believe to be the most debated feature of iPad Mini is inclusion of IPS displays instead of Retina Display. Few people are expressing doubts over the superior functioning of iPad Mini due the lack of Retina Display but Apple discards any such possibility assuring that iPad apps would be able to run without modification and without any elements dropping below what Apple considers the minimal tappable size.

Apple seems to be in unstoppable mode by launching all possible variations of gadgets. The reports are surfacing that the price tag for a mini iPad will be under $ 300.
