And if it doesn't have Touch ID, I might not upgrade at all.
Yeah, I have an iPad 3 around the house that used to be mine, until my 2 year old commandeered it. I miss having it at my beck and call for email, browsing, viewing photos i took on my phone, and many other Apps that are just better than iPhone.
Going forward, I'm very excited for the prospect of iPad 5. I'm so sold on Touch ID with my 5S that I'll be really disappointed if it is lacking on iPad 5....
....then again, I've never put a passcode on an iPad, and since the 2 have been using a Smart Cover or Smart Case to Lock/Unlock it. So with or without Touch ID, the experience of a fast/instant unlock/lock through the natural open/close of the cover is still an option.
I think I'd still be ok without Touch ID. The new physical design, with the performance of A7X, is more than enough for me.
