Reuters: Retina iPad mini may slip to 2014

Apple’s second-generation iPad mini with Retina display won’t get a wide rollout this month, and might not even launch until 2014, Reuters reports. Sources in Apple’s supply chain say the company is just now readying production for the new iPad mini. If the device actually is released this year, it may only be available in limited quantities. While the exact reasons for the delays are murky, one source said “strict power-saving requirements” postponed Apple’s certification of panel producers. Two sources claim Apple is looking to reduce costs, and the company might also release an 8GB version of the new iPad mini. An August report claimed Apple would release both the fifth-generation iPad and second-generation iPad mini this year.
