However, according to BitDefender, now about 18.6% of 65,000 apps for iPhone that was included in the study can access data in a user’s address book, while 41% of them can track location.

ipad_mini_model_front

Gotta Be Mobile has posted the photos of a physical model of the "iPad mini". The model sheds light on the basic shape of the rumored device, but it is only a case maker's mold, so we couldn’t claim that it reflects the device's form factor. According to the report, a pixel count on the photos suggests that the iPad mini will measure approximately 213 mm by 143 mm and be slightly thinner than the full-size iPad. The mockup also includes a smaller dock connector and two speaker grilles along the bottom edge of the device.
