We heard earlier that Apple are expecting to announce the new iPad Mini on Wednesday the 17th of October, and we previously heard that the iPad Mini would come with a 16:9 aspect ratio display.
According to a recent report, Apple are expected to launch the iPad mini with a 16:9 aspect ratio HD display, following on from the new aspect ratio in their iPhone 5.
The apparent reason behind this is for TV shows and movies content, which at the moment on the existing iPad 2 and iPad 3 are shown with black bars at the top and bottom of the display.
The new 16:9 display on the iPad Mini would do away with the black bars, and you would see the movie or TV shows in full screen, just like on Apple’s new iPhone 5, of course this is just a rumor at the moment.
Apple has now launched their new iPad Mini, have a look at the difference between iPad and iPad Mini.
