With the new iPad heading to shops as we speak, rumours of a new iPad mini continue to persist.

However, this time the rumour doesn’t reveal any specific information about the purported 7.85-inch iPad. What makes it interesting is the source.

Speaking to the Korea Times, a Samsung executive spilled the beans on Apple’s shopping spree in Korea. Last year Apple purchased between $7.8 and $9 billion worth of components from Samsung, but the unnamed exec said the contract is expected to hit $11 billion this year as Apple readies to introduce a new, smaller iPad.
