While we have been waiting to see hints of an iPad Mini 2 what just happened today morning has tech outlets in a dizzy.

SidhTech reports that Apple have gone ahead and had a soft launch for the iPad Mini 2. The successor to the current small tablet was revealed in matte black cladding along with a press release hinting at a Spring release date.

The blog didn’t have anything else to add so we’re hoping that Apple follows up and reveals more details about the iPad Mini 2. As for the earlier launch, the iPad ‘4’ did arrive less than a year after its predecessor so it is not so shocking that the iPad Mini has a replacement already. Check out the press release images below.
