Both the iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 expected to have improved 8MP cameras
Apple tends to focus heavily on the camera quality and battery life of its iOS devices, likely because the company believes those are the most important features of a smartphone as far as users are concerned. That said, it wouldn't be much of a surprise to see the cameras of the upcoming iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 get upgrades, but there are new predictions on what exactly those improvements could be.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is saying that the upgrade should be fairly substantial. The last gen iPad and iPad mini each featured the same camera seen in the iPad 3, which was a 5-megapixel rear camera with an f/2.4 aperture, but Kuo expects the new Apple tablets to have 8-megapixel rear cameras with larger apertures. 

Unfortunately, the predictions answer the question of if the upgraded 8MP cameras will be the ones that we saw in the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c or the improved 8MP camera found in the iPhone 5s. The iPhone 5s camera features a larger sensor for better low-light image capture, and is also capable of some pretty cool slo-mo video capture. 

Of course, we're probably only a couple weeks away from real answers on the matter, assuming Apple really is on track to announce the new tablets in mid-October.

It will have the same looks as the first iPad. It's hard to diffrenciate. Great improvement, if only the OS was less stricter.
