The iPad mini, or whatever it may be called, will hit stores and doorsteps on Nov. 2, according to several reports.
It's long been expected Apple would announce a 7.85-inch screen tablet sometime in October, and after sending out an invite for an Oct. 23 event earlier this week, it appears Apple is set to announce the gadget.
But a release date has been less clear.
TechCrunch, however, is the latest and perhaps most credible source to come out with a launch date. The tech site says sources close to Apple's supply chain are reporting Nov. 2, which would be just in time for the holidays as well as a Friday. If you don't know, Apple tends to launch its products on Fridays.
