Apple Posts Official Firmware for iPad Mini and iPad 4 Ahead Of Shipping Date

Mmmmm, firmware…

The first iPad Mini and iPad 4 new iPad pre-orders are set to arrive in customers’ homes on November 2, but Apple has posted the official firmware for both the iPad Mini and its larger brethren early.

You can get it from the site Is The Apple Store Down, which has all the iOS firmware available from Apple.

Note that these are the official Apple.com downloads, as evidenced by the URLs above, but that they are not available via Apple’s Developer Center as of yet.

    Why would we want to download the firmware exactly?
