Apple’s A8-powered ‘iPad mini 4’ chassis allegedly shown in new pics, video

“Amidst rumors suggesting Apple’s underpowered iPad mini 3 will soon see an upgrade, a new video and accompanying images show off a chassis with minor design tweaks alleged to be coming in a fourth-generation model,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.

“The ‘iPad mini 4’ chassis shown by on Tuesday shows a removed orientation lock/mute switch from the right side of the device, above the volume buttons,” Hughes reports. “In its place is a tiny microphone hole.”

Hughes reports, “This design change only adds credibility to the legitimacy of the part, as Apple already made the same design change for last year’s iPad Air 2.”

    1. Yeah, awesome; we used to have bed springs that sounded like that. Either you’re being facetious or you don’t know music from a hole in the ground. 🙂

      1. Let it be known ladies and gentlemen… Only the cowardly anonymous poster “Say What?” can be the arbiter of musical taste. Since we aren’t capable of deciding for ourselves what is good music and what isn’t, only he can decide for us!

        1. I always get a kick out of the “cowardly anonymous poster” routine. The day you post your full name and address instead of “ecrabb” is the day I will admit that you aren’t really a hypocritical, ignorant piece of shit.

          1. I’ve been using this same user name for many years on this site and several others. Many people here and on other sites do know my name and where I live, and I fear no one, least of all you. Fuck you and the horse you rode in on, and a big congratulations on being the single most obnoxious prick I’ve run into in all my years visiting this site.

            1. Well then, if so many people already know your real name and where you live, a brave person such as you won’t have any problem posting your real name and address. I’ll be waiting for that information.

            2. Let’s see… You post completely anonymously and take cheap pot shots at people about their music taste while I post for the better part of a decade with a username and avatar/logo that can be easily used to find me, yet somehow in your twisted reality, I’m the gutless liar. Nice try, you dishonest douchebag.

            3. Ya’ still didn’t post your name, no matter how you spin it. And you are the one who butted in to a post not directed at you. Give yourself a pat on the back and have a nice day Ms. Ecrabb.
