We recently reported that Apple is rumored to release the iPad Mini in an event that follows the launch of the iPhone 5.

Now AllThingsD cites sources saying that the mini tablet will be introduced in October.

The site writes:

“Apple’s next generation iPhone and its so-called “iPad mini” will debut at two separate events this fall, rather than a single one as has been widely speculated, according to several sources. First comes the latest iteration of the tech giant’s hugely popular smartphone, which will be unveiled at an as-of-yet unannounced event on September.”

The iPad Mini launch seems set for the month of October, but depending on the iPhone 5 launch it could be scheduled earlier.

Recent iPad Mini cases leaked on the web and revealed that the mini tablet could come with a rear-facing camera and a smaller dock connector.
