    Default Apple Support Website Claims Retina iPad Mini to Launch Today, Date is Incorrect


    A note discovered on Apple’s internal GSX website for repair service providers and resellers claims the widely anticipated iPad mini with Retina display will be rolling out in eight countries on November 12, though the message may likely be an error. According to Apple’s Global Service Exchange tool, the Retina iPad is set to debut on November 12 (local time) in Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore and the US.

    Although the message odes exist on GSX and has been seen by resellers, the date mentioned is likely incorrect.

    The message says the following:

    Published date: 11 Nov 2013

    iPad mini (Retina), delivering razor sharp text and detail in the same amazingly thin and light design, will be available in the following countries on November 12, 2013 (local time).

    • Australia
    • China (Wi-Fi only)
    • Hong Kong
    • Japan
    • New Zealand
    • Singapore
    • United States
    The above mentioned countries are well into November 12 with no sign of the Retina iPad mini at Apple’s retail stores or at third-party resellers. Furthermore, it’s highly unlikely that Apple will start sales before stores close. Apple usually reserves Friday for big product launches, as evidenced by the recent debut of the iPhone 5S, 5C, as well as the iPad Air. A launch on Tuesday, especially one without any public notice, seems out of the ordinary.

    The company has yet to announce a solid release date for the Retina iPad mini since the device was unveiled alongside the iPad Air in October. Apple mentioned the tablet would hit store shelves “later in November,” prompting industry watchers to speculate supply chain issues.

    We’ll have to wait for more concrete evidence.

    I have a true illness with this OCD on Apple product they now wake me up at three in the morning to preorder them

    I did not believe the rumor and was not going to get up but something woke me up at 3:10 in the morning. That is Eastern standard time
