Now it looks like the company won't be releasing a refreshed, higher resolution iPad mini this year at all, according to Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Brian White, who recently met with several electronics manufacturers and suppliers in both China and Taiwan. His sources backed up claims that Apple is having issues getting the refreshed iPad mini to the market.

The original iPad min faced supply issues thanks to manufacturing difficulties, with Apple facing deja vu over the refreshed iPad mini.
