Clayton Morris threw down on TWiT it's definitely having a fingerprint reader, while Rene Ritchie says absolutely not.

Ritchie also claims gold iPhone for Asia.

Processor is the "A7", of course, but noone seems to know what it will include. An update to ARMv8 is likely, but that doesn't say too much - slightly improved threading instructions. encryption instructions and a bunch of the things that were optional in ARMv7 and which Apple is using anyway (NEON and VFPv4). Some are saying 64-bit, but there seems to be little reason for it at this stage. RAM standard increase to LP-DDR3 for higher memory bandwidth seems likely, and I think an update to a newer GPU is possible as well.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.
