The iPad 5 will have a host of upgraded features and specs and will come with an A7X 64-bit chip processor, camera upgrade, thinner bezels and a screen resolution of 2,048 by 1,536 pixels.
Meanwhile, the iPad Mini 2 is rumored to feature an A7 dual-core or A6X processor, camera upgrades and retina display.
Both new iPads have also been rumored to be following various features found on the new Apple iPhone 5S, such as new color options (Gold, Space Gray, Silver) and Touch ID fingerprint sensors, however, a stream of reports have recently denied they will be featured on the new iPads.
