“Apple is testing a new iPad mini that includes a faster processor but not a Retina display, according to references in the iOS 7 SDK sent to us by a developer,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac.

“The references were located inside of a hidden file that lists all supported iOS 7 devices, and the information has been corroborated with details found within the iOS 7 beta operating system itself,” Gurman reports. “According to the provided information, Apple is considering three new iPad mini models: iPad ’2,8,’ iPad ’2,9,’ and iPad ’2,10.’ The respective code names for the devices are J75, J76, and J77. This point to one Wi-Fi only model and two cellular compatible models (just like the current iPad Mini).”

Gurman reports, “From the references, we can also infer that this potential iPad mini model will lack a Retina display.”

So that means Apple is up with a devise that might not give them much profit. Yet you will get a Hassel-free working device which is good thing if you ignore that retina thing slightly.
