Tapscape has reported again and again on the rumored 2014 iPad Air. However, the grapevine has been largely silent on 2014 iPad mini 2. That said, the lack of info indicated that Apple’s smaller Retina tablet wouldn’t be release until early 2015, alongside the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
Apparently, those rumors were wrong. Tim Cook et al plan to release, according to Japanese fan site Macotakara, an updated Retina iPad mini at their next Apple Event on Thursday, which will be streamed live.

IPad mini Retina The (2nd generation), the theory that 2015 second quarter release had been promising with 12.9-inch model iPad, but so far, seems to be two simultaneous product updates as well last year.
The color lineup of Smart Cover, color line-up and design of the Smart Case also seems to have been slightly changed.
For what it’s worth, the 2014 iPad mini refresh will look very similar — A8 chip, Touch ID and updated enclosure with aforementioned recessed volume paddles. Also, the 2014 iPad Air is expected to come in three colors — Silver, Space Gray and Gold — so the Retina mini 2 in said same hues won’t be surprising.
