    Hey

    Can someone tell me exactly which version of iOS (X.X.X) the iPad Mini Retina (Or iPad Mini 2) comes with? Every retailer that has it sais iOS 7, though some of my friends who has it says it came with iOS 8 onboard..?

    Thanks

    It could be a version of iOS 7, depending on when it was produced. It was first introduced in October, 2013. The exact version of iOS installed depends on when it left the factory. The latest version of iOS is installed on an iOS device just before its shipped from the factory. If you want iOS 7 on it, you'll have to check it out before handing over your money, as the iPad Mini 2 is still offered alongside the iPad Mini 3.

    Initially the iPad Mini 2 came with iOS 7.0.3 from Apple. Though depending on when the retailer received the Mini 2 from Apple, it is possible to have a more recent version of iOS installed.

    Well I guess it is save to assume that since iOS 7 is listed on the specification page for it on the retailers website, that the unit actually comes with iOS 7, otherwise they got a problem!

    If you're not sure of which version is sitting on your device check that on Settings>General>About, with the version you have shown about half way down.

    The OP wouldn't be able to do that until after he purchased the device. He was wanting to know what version of iOS it came with before making the purchase.

    You are absolutely right if he is in the process of shopping for one. I thought I would add my $0.02 just on the off chance that may have purchased one. I've been known to make lousy assumptions before;)

    Going to this site and entering the serial number of the iPad will show what iOS version it shipped with. It's good for iOS versions from iOS 5 to iOS 7.1. http://ios.joshuaturner.co/
