Photos show 'space gray' second-gen iPad mini shell
New photos, obtained by a French site, are said to reveal a second-generation iPad mini shell in Apple's recent "space gray" color. The <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294218==http://www.nowhereelse.fr/ipad-mini-2-gris-sideral-88603/" rel='nofollow'>part</a> otherwise appears almost identical to the shell used for the first-gen Mini. Until now, only SIM card trays hinted at the possibility of the tablet adopting the new color. <br />
<br />
Apple appears to be making space gray a standard option across all of its mobile devices. While the company only called attention to the color when announcing the iPhone 5s, <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294217==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/09/10/company.adds.new.matching.color.to.ipod.line.ipod. classic.untouched/" rel='nofollow'>the iPod lineup has made the switch behind the scenes</A>. A new iPad mini is generally expected to be announced next month, and come in two color combinations: black/space gray, and white/silver. A fifth-gen 9.7-inch iPad should arrive at the same time, and potentially in the same combinations as the 5s: black/space gray, white/gold, and white/silver. SIM trays in those shades have leaked.<br />
<br />
Many details of the tablets have seemingly been cemented. On top of a slight color change, the Mini is expected to get a Retina display and a faster processor, presumably the A6. The fifth-gen iPad should adopt an A7 or A7X chip, and adopt the design principles of the Mini, with slimmer side bezels and less tapered edges.
