reported on Thursday. Of course, DigiTimes has a mixed record with its rumors and predictions. This one, though, will be right on the mark.
It's an obvious spec change and it makes sense. After all, the last two versions of its bigger brother, the iPad, had a Retina display. It's easier to make a retina display for a smaller screen, as well (Apple says a Retina display is anything over 300 pixels-per-inch). So why not?
By the time the next iPad mini rolls around, prices for other parts will have dropped, meaning the Retina display will have a smaller effect on Apple's bottom line.
It is, of course, possible that the iPad mini 2 will not have a Retina display, but the odds of that are probably slim to none.
At any rate, this is possibly the worst rumor of the month, or the best non-rumor statement of the month. You decide.
