Look for Apple to revise the full-size iPad and the iPad Mini later this month. Here's what we expect -- and what we don't.

The full-size iPad is widely expected to have the same A7 processor found in the iPhone 5s. The newer processor is notable for its 64-bit architecture. Even though the processor is only dual-core and not quad-core, benchmark tests show the iPhone 5s outperforming competing smartphones with more cores under the hood. The full-size iPad currently has Apple's A6X processor, while the iPad Mini has an older Apple A5 dual-core processor. It's doubtful the iPad Mini will also get the A7 chip -- instead, it is likely to be updated to the A6X processor. The bigger question is whether either will also gain the M7 Motion coprocessor that's in the iPhone 5s.
