New images have surfaced of what appears to be a new Apple iPad Mini that features the new anodized color that has is featured on the iPhone 5S. The new iPad mini also features the same Touch ID fingerprint scanner we saw on the recently released iPhone 5S.
Other than the color change and new fingerprint scanner, the pictured iPad Mini appears to be of the same form-factor and trim of its predecessor. With Apple's recent trend of rehashing existing products with minimal changes, this is no surprise. Apple will be hosting an event on October 15 during which it is expected to launch a new iPad and iPad mini, so all will be revealed then!.
