For now we are going to categorize this golden story as a rumor, but it looks very solid (pun intended). Some snapshots of the new iPad Mini 2 just showed up online today and they come sporting a couple of iPhone 5S inspired features: a gold coloring and a fingerprint scanner. Of course, as with all pics found on the web, these could easily be faked. Still, it wouldn't be too much of a stretch to think Apple would bring this tech to their new iPad lineup as well as their phones.
The golden colored aesthetics really suit the Apple tablet. Most of the rumors point to a launch window of October to November for the next generation iPads. We can't wait to get our hands on these devices and will bring you guys every juicy detail we find right up to the final launch.
