Web Site Leaks Images of Gold iPad Mini

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Looking to capitalize on the popularity of the gold iPhone 5s, Apple ( AAPL) may launch a gold iPad mini as well.

Chinese Web site ZOL has leaked images of the next iPad mini in the same color scheme as the gold iPhone 5s.

There have been leaked images of the iPad mini in Apple's space grey color, so it appears that Apple is bringing the new color schemes to all of its iDevices. Apple has not refreshed the iPod Touch yet and may do so at the iPad event, which is rumored to be mid-October though nothing has been confirmed.

Apple could not be immediately reached for comment.

In addition to the new gold color scheme, pictures of the next iPad mini seem to confirm that it will have TouchID fingerprint scanning capabilities, which were unveiled as part of the iPhone 5s unveiling earlier this month. The new iPad mini tablets also appear to have Retina Display, Apple's high-resolution screen, supported on the iPhones and Apple's larger 9.7-inch iPad.

Apple shares were lower in Friday trading, off 0.67% to $482.94.
