It’s always good to think two or three steps ahead to prepare for any situation, and that’s obviously what Apple’s been doing when it comes to the iPad mini, and iOS 6.
As we told you about earlier, improvements needed to be added to iOS’ Multi-Touch in order to accommodate the smaller bezel of the iPad mini. With the mini, you no longer have the luxury of a half-inch bezel wrapping around the screen like the bigger iPad models.
That means that fingers and thumbs will now rest on the actual screen of the device instead of the bezel, and this would in turn result in a litany of false positive finger inputs. If the iPad mini shipped with iOS 5, such an issue would be a major problem.
