In order to assist case manufacturers in making accessories for the new iPad mini and 4th generation iPad, Apple has posted detailed drawings of the devices, which serve as a measurement guide. Apple had also posted similar schematics of the iPhone 5 upon that device’s launch.
If you’ve ever wondered the exact distance between the volume rocker and the silent switch on the iPad mini, today is your lucky day.
This won’t get you any closer to getting your hands on one, however. Pre-orders begin this friday, October 26th, and only WiFi models are scheduled to arrive by November 2nd. WiFi + Cellular models are expected to arrive “mid-November”.
