Previous reports had hinted at an October 10 release of the supposed iPad Mini of Apple. However, the day came and the smaller version of the tablet offering of Apple was nowhere in sight.

Now the latest chatter has hinted of an October 23 release of the rumored iPad Mini. According to All Things D, sources have revealed that the iPad Mini will be introduced in a press event on October 23. The location of the reported press event was not revealed although speculations have emerged that the Cupertino campus of Apple will serve as the venue for the press event.

This has yet to be confirmed by Apple. An earlier report had indicated that invitations for the iPad Mini launch were supposed to be released on October 10 and the actual event will be held on October 17. The smaller version of the Apple tablet will supposedly be released into the market on November 2.  But no invitations were released by Apple.

Reports on the supposed iPad Mini have circulated in the web in the past few months. Earlier reports had revealed that the smaller version of the iPad was supposed to be launched with the iPhone 5, however later reports revealed that the iPad Mini will be launched around a month after the introduction of the latest version of the smartphone offering of Apple.

Issues in production have reportedly resulted to this delay in the introduction of the device. The reported October 23 launch date of the iPad Mini is two days prior to the announcement of the quarterly earnings of the company, and three days prior to the New York launch of the Windows 8 OS. The Microsoft Surface tablet will also be launched on the same date along with a number of tablets using the Windows 8 OS.

The iPad Mini will reportedly offer a 7.85-inch display screen and will feature the latest Lightning connector of the company. The device is expected to be released into the market a few weeks after it is launched.
