Apple to Release A6-Powered iPad Alongside iPad Mini on 17 Oct?

Apple to Release A6-Powered iPad Alongside iPad Mini on 17 Oct?

 

It seems that Apple might be launching more than one tablet on 17th October as there are signs of a modified version of the current iPad model in the works.

According to MacRumors, a developer has seen evidence of an unknown "iPad 3,6" showing up on his app analytics log. What's even more interesting is that the device runs on a processor which is based on the new ARMv7s architecture. The same architecture is used in the A6 processor of the iPhone 5.

As a point of reference, the current iPad is designated "iPad 3,1", "iPad 3,2", and "iPad 3,3" for the Wi-Fi and cellular models. An "iPad 3,6"  designation could mean several things: 

  • a derivative of the current iPad model 
  • a tweaked version of the current iPad model with the new dock connector
  • a more powerful iPad model with the A6 processor 
  • the next generation iPad model with the A6 processor or a variation of the chipset 

The current iPad is in the market for about 7 months and Apple risks incurring backlash from consumers if it releases an upgraded version in the coming weeks.
