New, detailed iPad mini photos emerge ahead of expected launch date

The photographs of an alleged iPad mini are 'most convincing yet'

As we approach the expected launch of Apple's rumoured iPad mini, new photographs of what is claimed to be a leaked model of the 7-inch tablet have emerged online.

The photos, published by Sonny Dickson on his Twitter, match with many of the previously leaked parts, and include a rear camera, lightning connector, and rear microphone.

Business Insider calls the photographs the 'most convincing' yet, and we would have to agree. However, none of the photographs show the front of the iPad mini, so we are led to believe that Dickson has only got his hands on the back plate of the device.

The latest iPad mini rumours suggest that Apple will issue invitations to its launch event this week, and the on sale date could be 2 November.

Recent leaks suggest that the iPad mini could have an anodized back plate, and could come in a Black & Slate model like the iPhone 5.

A graphic designer has created photorealistic renderings of the rumoured iPad mini, revealing what the device could look like if Apple makes it available in the colours of the new iPod touch models, which are expected to ship this week.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
