Apple will most likely add the Touch ID fingerprint sensor to both the next-gen iPad Air and iPad mini
We simply cannot deny the popularity of the Touch ID fingerprint sensor which was more than an instant hit last year with the release of the iPhone 5s. Taking it further from that great response, we are looking into the Apple future which is certainly not free from this particularly loved feature which we are sure is going to land on the next-gen iPad Air and iPad mini. Though we cant say for sure but we are suspecting that this notion is being supported by a couple of new images out of Asia, said to showcase a prototype of the iPad Air 2.
The Touch ID was successfully used as the tool which shot up the sales for the iPhone 5s and now iPad Air 2 is going to take its lead from here. And there is no reason why the iPad mini 3 would stay behind; it is also likely to be treated to the decidedly refined fingerprint-sensing hardware later on this year when both models are refreshed. However, there is little we can say about the iPad mini because the leak today focuses solely on the iPad Air successor.
While many can argue that the iPad doesn’t necessarily require the quick-fire authentication which has been enjoyed by the iPhone users, it goes without saying that the Touch ID has proved itself to be a very useful feature and a secure one too. Anything that boosts the iOS security couldn’t simply be put at the back.
