The iPad 5 has been rumored to come with a lighter and thinner design, whereas the iPad mini 2 is expected to feature Retina display.

Both devices could also be equipped with the new Touch ID technology that arrived with the iPhone 5S last month.

Ritchie speculates on what Apple could do with the iSight camera. He believes the new iPads could feature an 8 megapixel camera, similar, but not identical to, the camera on the iPhone 5S.

Other possibilities include the iPhone 4S camera or “the good iPhone 5 camera currently still found in the iPhone 5c. Either way, it’ll be a substantial improvement over the 2012 iPad camera,” he argues.

Similar to the iPhone 5S, the new tablets may also get an updated FaceTime HD camera, with 720p resolution, a back illuminated sensor (BSI) and larger pixel size.

Finally, Ritchie sees as almost certain the fact that Apple will offer an iPad 5 with 128GB of storage, while the iPad mini 2 may come in a more affordable 64GB version.
