Shortage of Displays Pushes Retina iPad Mini To 2014 [Report]

By  at Sunday, July 14, 2013  

The release of Apple’s smaller iPad variant was welcomed by the whole tech community especially because of the excellent build quality, but it came with a catch: the low-quality display. It was especially criticized for that display because even for the hefty $329 price tag, it still came with a inferior screen to the $200 Nexus 7 by Google. It was widely hoped that Apple would change that with a Quality Retina display sporting-iPad Mini this year, however; it seems like that may not be the case after all.

New reports have surfaced from Taiwan claiming that due to shortages of the iPad Mini-sized Retina displays, the 2nd-Gen iPad Mini won’t have a Retina display. We’re not sure of what Apple will go for if they can’t use Retina displays but this certainly is bad news and we hope that it is nothing more than a rumor.
Even though Android tablets have dominated this smaller-tablet market, Apple’s iPad Mini has grabbed a great chunk of it.

Of course, the rest of the internals of the iPad Mini would get an update but the lack of the Retina display would hurt Apple! And As Google gears up to release a successor to it’s widely popular Nexus 7, the Cupertino-based Apple would surely prefer to have a worthy competitor in the market.
