Two photographs claiming to show Apple's upcoming iPad Mini's battery have appeared on the popular Apple news and rumors website, MacRumors.
The alleged iPad Mini battery sports a charge capacity of 4490 mAh and runs at 3.72 volts. This gives the iPad Mini a 16.7 watt-hour capacity, while the third-generation iPad has a 42.5 watt-hour capacity. While this may deter would-be buyers of the iPad Mini due to its lower battery life, do remember that the iPad Mini has a smaller screen and will definitely sport a processor that has more efficient power consumption.
While nothing concrete has been announced, it appears Apple is gearing up to launch the iPad Mini on 23 October, and this photo leak will only serve to reinforce the rumors of the iPad Mini's imminent release.
