7.85-inch iPad mini new concept design

In order to give an idea of such a device’s measurements, the creator also included the current 9.7-inch iPad and 3.5-inch iPhone in the pictures.

Recent rumors talked about the existence of the prototype of an iPad mini from Apple.

Apple watcher and writer John Gruber of Daring Fireball revealed earlier this month that the company is testing a 7.85-inch iPad in its labs.

The Cupertino tech giant is believed by many to be planning the release of such a product especially since the segment of 7-inch devices is constantly developing.

A smaller iPad would make a strong competitor to Amazon’s Kindle Fire, which has a 7-inch screen.
