New photos and a video alleging to show the rear shell of the next-generation iPad mini have appeared on French blog nowhereelse.fr. The accompanying description notes that the shell includes two rows of ten holes for the speakers on either side of the Lightning port, differing from the number of holes on the current-generation iPad mini. Notably, the report also indicates that the lock switch has disappeared and the new shell appears more similar to the design of the iPad Air 2.
