Parts leak shows antennas

Rumors and leaks surrounding the iPad mini continue to swirl as the company prepares for its official launch event. Part numbers posted by 9to5Mac show a list of Lightning adapters and cables, including an SD card reader and USB adapter that appear to represent the Lightning counterpart to the current 30-pin camera connection kit for iPads.

The USB power adapter on the leaked list suggests Apple may have decided to bump the charging power from 10W to 12W, presumably enabling faster charging.

A new MagSafe 2 power adapter is shown alongside the apparent iPad accessories. The 60W adapter is believed to be associated with a 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro, in contrast to the 85W MagSafe 2 adapter for the current 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro.

A separate leak, originating from Nowhereelse.fr and noticed by AppleInsider, is claimed to show the Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS antennas for the iPad mini. The information corroborates earlier reports pointing to a variety of connectivity options.

Although Apple has not publicly acknowledged the focus of its San Jose media event scheduled for 1pm Eastern, the company is expected to unveil the iPad mini and other new products that will arrive before the holidays.
