French website Nowhere Else has published a series of pictures purporting to show the design of Apple's much-rumored iPad mini, the supposed 7.85-inch successor to the company's popular iPad. Like the detailed iPhone 5 mockup that we saw at IFA, this unit appears to be some sort of model put together based on existing rumors, with the display in particular looking distinctly non-functional. As Nowhere Else points out, the device's ports and buttons line up with holes seen in a number of leaked accessories, but this in itself is no guarantee of accuracy.

While the new iPhone is almost certain to be announced at an event in San Francisco tomorrow, it is not yet clear when we can expect official details of the latest iPad to emerge — still, details have been leaked to a number of news outlets over recent months. According to Bloomberg's most recent report, the device is slated for release in October of this year.
