I prefer the shape of the iPhone 5, without the teardrop shape. It would be nice to see an ultra thin iPad that is super slim without the teardrop. I know that other tablets go for that shape, so it's nothing new, but I love the feel of the aluminum and thin-ness of the iPhone 5. It's better than everything else out there.
When you have 1/7 of the world population, it's big news. Apple needs to consider these things (which I'm sure they already have). They must have decided that quality is better/more financially rewarding than quantity
I hope this iPad is stellar (like all the others have been). I've always wanted to get an iPad but haven't been able to justify the expense. Now that I'm done school and working, I can look at getting a new toy!
I hope the motor in the 5S is much better than my 4 motor. I had to replace mine in the 4 and it is still spotty, working sometimes and not others. I rely heavily on the motor as my job requires it on silence/vibrate
Having the scanner under the button makes it vulnerable to damage over time. The button gets a lot of use and can be pushed very hard. I don't think they will place it there
And you can just enrol multiple fingerprints for different fingers. Not hard to have lots of them stored. And you could have others like a wife or child enrolled with certain permissions like app usage or call abilities
