The switching of rumors surrounding an iPad mini 2 release date has been pretty interesting the last couple of weeks, and the blog at the center of these apparent insider leaks has fooled so many websites along the way but certainly not consumers. The iPad mini 2 has never been delayed, even though one blog claimed to have insider information pointing to this, but has since reversed this very detail gaining buzz again from the original rumor they spread.
Most of our readers will know the blog we are talking about, which goes by the name of Digi Times, and as our readers have pointed out before this blog has become extremely unreliable. They continually state, “our unnamed source” and then at a later date these very sources deliver news that totally contradicts the previous statements.
This hasn’t stopped blogs and mainstream media jumping on the details they share, which they share in the form of almost fact. So, hearing that the same blog has now stated the iPad mini 2 release date will be in October around one year after the first generation hasn’t surprised us. This led to hundreds of blogs writing titles along the lines of, “iPad mini 2 back on track”.
We cannot help but laugh at so many websites grabbing every detail without questioning it, or at least adding their own opinion after some research. This has led to a lot of news reports claiming the iPad mini 2 would launch in early 2014, and now they say it is coming this year after all.
Personally, we have expected the iPad mini 2 to release in October all along, so our best advice is to ignore reports coming from sites like Digi Times, or at the very least have a read and laugh at how they continually contradict themselves.
You can expect the iPad mini 2 release date around one year after the first launch, so that’s in Oct/Nov. If you want to understand any problems with the Retina, then this iPad mini 2 article on Product Reviews will clarify any issues that in a nutshell are to do with battery life.
