iPad mini 2 to come in 'space grey', leaked pic hints

The next version of Apple's tiny tablet will come in the same space grey as the iPhone 5S, according to an image online.

iPhone 5S? Pah. That's old news. It's all about the next iPads now, which could be with us as soon as next month. An earlier rumour said the next full-sized iPad would come in the same "space grey" as the iPhone 5S, and now comes word the next iPad mini will be available in a matching shade.

French tech site NowhereElse.fr has even got its hands on some pics of the tiny tablet in the new hue. The space grey iPad mini's shell is on the right, next to what's alleged to be the same model in silver. Of course none of this is official yet, so take it all with a pinch of salt.

We'll have to wait and see if the next iPad mini is available in gold too, just like the iPhone 5S. The gold 5S has been in short supply. It was the first colour to slip to an October dispatch date on the Apple Store site. Though now all colours of iPhone 5S are listed as shipping in October.

According to previous leaks, the iPad mini 2 will be slimmer than the current model. It could feature the same high resolution retina display as its bigger brother too.

One report reckons we won't see news iPads until next year. Others, however, have pencilled in 15 October as the day Apple will announce its new range of tablets. Keep it CNET UK, we'll let you know as soon as we hear.
