and lose the Metal interface?   There's a reason to 'code to the metal' Metal will be the real game development interface...  Swift will just make loading a Metalcall a one liner.
This topic (touchID kit) is exactly what they should have done.   And it portends that every device will eventually have touchID (even the 'consumer' phones/pads).   As soon as Ebay or Facebook or Starbucks build it it,  everyone will need it.
Education buys from June-Aug....summer time clearing the shelves.  Start with a lower price, later bundle with free stuff (excess inventory of iPods, printers, etc.).   And/or Apple wants to keep the surface 3 out of schools.  It may replace a MBair, but some parents may want to buy them because they think they know microsoft better than can learn iOS.   Dropping the price shows these prospective buyers the threshhold is lower (and we all know there are only 2 reason to...
