On Tuesday, Apple finally took the wraps off its most-anticipated slate releases this year, the new iPad Air (iPad 5), and the iPad mini 2, and as early as now people are already asking what the iPad mini 2 release date will be. 

If you are fan of the original 'mini', this one will certainly make you love the slate even more. The Cupertino company has heard the people's cry and it responded by placing the Retina display on the new iPad mini. It will still have the same dimension with the first, but it will have far more impressive specs.

In a report by GSM Arena, the new iPad mini 2 will have a 1536 x 2048 pixel-resolution, the new A7 chipset of the iPhone 5s, and a PowerVR SGX 6th series. 

Contrary to numerous rumors, the new slate does not have a Touch ID home button, though a lot of experts and consumers would agree that it did not make sense to put one on a tablet anyway.

There are a handful of storage options ranging from 16GB all the way to 128GB. The new tablet will also come in several colors: silver, white, space grey and black. 

According to Apple, the new generation iPad mini 2 will hit the stores in November and will have a starting price of $399, $50 more expensive than the previous generation when it hit the market last year.
