While the iPad 5 has a rumored launch date, people waiting for the iPad Mini 2 are not quite as lucky.

With the larger iPad speculated to be ready for release in September, the iPad Mini 2 may not make an apperance at the same time, according to HNGN. One of the factors weighing on the 7.9 inch device including a debate over Retina Display.

While Retina Display is standard on the newer iPad 3 and iPad 4, there seems to be a debate inside Apple over whether or not the updated mini should receive the same treatment. Analyst Ming-chi Kuo says the company is still looking for a solution to the problem of the Retina Display's added size, according to Know Your Mobile.

Apparently the technology would need to be slimed down in order to for the smaller device to accommodat it. Lack of a solution appears to have slowed the production schedule.

However, buyers should be able to expect the newest iteration of the iPad mini to be equipped with a faster processor than its predecessor. While last years release packed a duel-core Apple A5, the Mini 2 may be treated to the same A6X that the iPad 4 received, or at least the A6 in order to give it the same speed as the full-sized device, according to Expert Reviews.

Apple is slatted to release iOS 7 this fall but the company claims that Panorama and Filters in the Camera app will not transfer to the previous iPad Mini. However, this leaves the iPad Mini 2 still a possible recipient of the new system, reports Gotta Be Mobile. The site also claims that the camera itself may be improved since this is a common Apple upgrade between generations.

The price is expected to stay the same as that of the iPad Mini.
