Check Out iPad Mini Prototype With 2 Microphones


Check Out iPad Mini Prototype With 2 Microphones

One of the rumors we've been hearing last fall was suggesting that the new 8-inch tablet would have microphone located in the top-middle of its rear shell. Just like on the iPhone 5, it was to be used for noise-canceling and to improve audio pickup.
And when Apple released the first generation of iPad Mini there was no any hole at the top of of its rear casing. But looking at some new pictures of a purported prototype for the slate, that may not have been Apple’s plan…
Sonny Dickson, who has provided accurate intel and photos of leaked components in the past, writes:
”According to our sources, Apple had originally planned to incorporate what appears to be a second microphone in the recent version of the iPad mini.
The photos show the prototype iPad mini with an extra hole centered, atop the rear of the device. It is unclear as to why Apple withheld the second microphone from the final product release, my guesses would be that it was axed out to cut down on cost, or to be preserved for a future generation iPad mini.”
The above pictures for the iPad Mini prototype with 2 microphone is very interesting and similar to many rumors, for example I could remember there was a rumors claiming the iPad mini would have a rear mic—Apple must have decided to pull it at the last minute. And two, it explains all of those mini cases with the holes in their backs.

Though the first generation iPad mini didn’t actually get the rear mic, both the iPhone 5 and current-gen iPod touch have them. And the word is that the iPad 5 will have one located right next to its rear camera, so we imagine the next-gen mini will too.

So what do you think ?
