Apple last updated its iPad line almost a year ago, when the iPad mini made its debut with a screen slightly less than 8 inches in contrast to the full-sized iPad which measures almost 10 inches diagonally.
Many expect Apple to upgrade the iPad Mini's screen to Apple's Retina display, a high-definition screen comparable to new versions of the Nexus and Kindle, which have higher-resolution screens than Apple's.

The larger iPads may feature fingerprint recognition, introduced last month on the iPhone 5s.
As well as 5th gen iPad, Apple Insider
is tipping new Smart Covers for iPad (which would make sense given 'we've got a lot to cover mantra), a new Mac Pro desktop and OS X 10.9 Mavericks upgrades, as well as an Apple set-top box - although this rumour has been around forever and has yet to pass.
Mavericks upgrade could go on sale that same day, while the Mac Pro is tipped to be on sale from Nov. 15.
