Apple’s rumoured iPad mini is reportedly in production at both Foxconn and Pegatron factories, which would make this the first time an Apple tablet has been manufactured outside a Foxconn factory.

Citing two security firm sources, Taiwanese newspaper The Economic Times is reporting that Pegatron could produce up to 60 percent of the 7.85in iPads ahead of the tablets launch in October.

The move would be a sign that Apple is spreading the manufacturing load, with analysts predicting large sales numbers of both the iPad mini and Apple’s newest smartphone, the iPhone 5.

Apple’s iPhone 5 first shipment sold out in under an hour on Friday, with two-week delays now expected for pre-ordered devices.
