Yes . . Apple is likely to launch 7.8 inch iPad Mini on October 23… this is a breaking news if it is, especially when coming from trusted sources of AllThingsD.

Earlier, there had been rumors of its launch date being October 10 & then October 17 but none were true. Apple also might hold this event at their Town Hall Auditorium for comparatively less number of audience & its going to be for invitees-only.

iPad Mini will feature 7.85-inch liquid-crystal display, a new lightning connector and is expected to be thinner than its big brother. We shall know more details very soon or we can get them anyways on October 23rd. 🙂
