It is rumored that Apple is testing a new iPad Mini with an A6 processor but without a Retina display. It is proved by a hidden file that lists all supported iOS 7 devices.
According to this information, Apple will be launching three new iPad mini models: iPad “2,8,” iPad “2,9,” and iPad “2,10.” The devices ill be called J75, J76, and J77 respectively. One of the three models will support only WiFi connection, while two others will be cellular-compatible. (just like the current iPad minis). The internal nomenclature for these iPads follows the current iPad minis, which are iPad “2,5,” iPad “2,6,” and iPad “2,7.”
The new iPad minis will boast a s5l8950x processor. It has the same A6 chip as current iPhone 5. It is a shame that the coming iPads minis will lack "@2x" hooks to higher resolution images. Thus it may be assumed that they will not have a Retina display.
SemiAccurate says that Intel will become Apple's supplier of ultra-high performance version of its Haswell for the coming MacBook Pros. According to the report, the chips will boast a special version of Intel's highest-end GT3e (Iris Pro 5200) integrated graphics.
It was Apple that requested a special top bin cream-of-the-crop GT3e selection from Intel, with "as much GPU power as possible." Now when most of the top chips are bought by Apple, much less will remain for Intel's other customers.
