It was believed that Apple would introduce iPad Mini along side the iPhone 5 on September 12. Unfortunately, we didn’t saw any iPad Mini on the Media Event. Before the Media Event could take place, we were hearing about another Media Event is lined up after the iPhone 5’s one by Apple. In that second Media Event, the iPad Mini is highly expected to take the stage with some musical concert after it is unveiled. The second media event is hinted towards October 17 with issuing of October 10 Media Invites for selected journalists by Apple.

Following the news of October 10 issuance of Media Invites, we recently reported about the iPad Mini Production that started at Foxconn in Brazil. The source was not sure about the production started in China or not yet. However, today ukrainianiphone cited another news with completely leaked iPad Mini parts. The blog claims to have hands on the images of the iPad Mini taken from a Factory in China where the parts are delivered for assembly in Foxconn.
