Ahead of the iPad Mini announcement event taking place tomorrow, images of a purported iPad 4 Lightning dock connector has been leaked.
In order to add credence, the photos in question features a comparison of both the Lightning dock connector for an iPad 4 and the dock for the iPad Mini. The new dock seemingly confirms that the iPad 3's next major successor is being redesigned to support several new components.
In addition to the iPad Mini and the aforementioned next-generation iPad, Apple is said to be preparing another tablet-related announcement for tomorrow's media event. The company is also rumored to be debuting a revised 9.7-inch Retina model of the device.
The latter is likely to receive a Lightning connector as the iPhone 5 did, while its price will match the price points stemming from its predecessors.
