When the Apple iPad mini is unveiled, it is expected to be available in two colour options. This will follow the trend of the recently launched iPhone and is believed to be launched in an aluminium and white finish and a slate and black version. Ever since the iPhone 5 was launched, many users have spoken about the fact that the black version of the smartphone was extremely susceptible to scratches;  this case was not present with the white option. As mentioned earlier, it is believed that the yet to be announced iPad mini will come in these two finishes and a recent report by Digitimes indicates that since the black casing is easily prone to scratches, there may be a delay in the yield rates.As per the report, the authors Aaron Lee and Ninelu Tu said, “Along with the latest market rumors indicating that Apple is likely to unveil the much speculated iPad mini on October 17, sources in Apple's supply chain in Taiwan are also indicating that shipments of the iPad mini tablets are not smooth at the moment due to low yield rates at chassis makers. Case makers Foxconn Electronics, Catcher Technology and Ri-Teng Computer Accessory are responsible for production of the iPad mini chassis, the sources indicated. Ri-Teng is an associate company of Pegatron. Catcher declined to comment on market reports, but stated that its capacity utilization rates as well as yield rates for various products all meet its product roadmap.”
