If this is really the iPad Mini 2's back plate (right), then all the action is happening on the inside.

Yesterday's iPhone event revealed nothing about new iPads, but if a new video is to be believed, there's an iPad Mini 2 waiting in Apple's wings -- and its feature set is definitely open to interpretation.
The key takeaway, of course, is that the iPad Mini 2 will have the same physical dimensions as its predecessor. If that's the case (no pun intended), what's left that can be new about the new Mini? The insides, of course.
The next Mini will almost certainly have a faster processor, though it remains to be seen whether it'll be the current iPad's A6X or a newer A7X. The current Mini runs on Apple's A5 chip. (Quick poll: Does anyone find the Mini to be slow?)
A camera upgrade is also likely, though the Mini already matches the iPad 4's 5-megapixel sensor and 1080p video-recording capabilities.
