Apple Rumor of the Day 2/20: iPad Mini 2 Now in Production?

Related: Apple, iPad Mini

It's just been a few months since the Fall launch of the iPad mini but it's still time for new rumors about the next generation high def iPad Mini 2.

Via DigiTimes and CultofMac, "AU Optronics, a display manufacturer that produces panels for the iPad mini, has reportedly caught up with its orders following poor yield rates during the second half of 2012. The company has produced one million displays for the device, according to industry sources, and it has now begun work on its next project - a new display for the next-generation iPad mini."

According to CNET last week, via Chinese news on BrightWire, the "The 'iPad Mini 2' will have a Retina screen boasting 324 pixels per inch (PPI), according to a Chinese language report via BrightWire. That's based on an 7.9-inch iPad Mini with 2,048x1,536 resolution display -- which simply doubles the resolution of the current iPad Mini's 1,024x768 screen. And that's the same resolution of the current 9.7-inch Retina iPad. But packing all of those pixels into the Mini's smaller 7.9-inch display means the density jumps. So, the 324 PPI on the Mini would exceed the 264 PPI on the Retina iPad and would be just shy of the iPhone's 326."
