What would appear to be some of the first examples of third-party iPad mini cases have appeared online today, as reported on by AppleInsider. The cases came to light on Giz-China.com, and feature a camera hole in the top left, which would seem to indicate that the iPad mini will have a rear-facing camera, just as you might expect. The case also reveals another hole in the center-rear of the case, which ties in with other previously leaked parts, which have also shown a mysterious hole in the same place. The hole is between the camera lens and flash, and itâ€™s not clear exactly what it is, as yet. AppleInsider notes that recent speculation in the press has mentioned a new rear-facing microphone designed to improve the quality of audio recordings for videos filmed on the iPad mini. Other cases shown by AppleInsider feature the smaller dock connector and front-facing FaceTime camera.
