    Default Video: Touch ID Sensor Coming to iPad 5?


    As a nice complement to the video MMi's Akshay Masand shared with readers earlier today showing the purported space gray iPad 5, another video hit the web Wednesday that is raising questions about the features we can expect from Apple's next-gen iPad.

    Once again shared on YouTube by Unbox Therapy, the video highlights a number of iPad 5 components that clearly give way to suggestions that there's ample space available for Apple to toss in one of those nifty Touch ID sensors.

    Mixing and matching components to prove his point, Unbox Therapy‘s Lewis Hilsenteger demonstrates that iPhone 5S’ fingerprint sensor fits beautiful in the home button opening on what we're told is the iPad 5′s front panel.

    “It almost looks like it was designed to go in there,” Hilsenteger says, raising further speculation that Apple will deliver the Touch ID feature to its refreshed tablet.

    Of course, we won't know for sure what Apple plans to do with the new iPad 5 until the company likely unveils it sometime later this month.

    Common sense would tell you that the fingerprint sensor will be on the 5th gen ipad and maybe the 2nd gen mini. I only say maybe for the mini because Apple likes to spoon feed it's tech sometimes. For instance, when the mini first came out, retina displays were already on iPhones & iPads... Why not the mini?

    I don't trust that finger print sensor one bit. Don't plan on using it on my 5S.

    I was thinking the same thing. Why wouldn't they add the finger sensor? Reports are coming in on a 64bit cpu as well. No way! Lol

    Agreed..natural progression. Apple cannot keep delaying updates to other products and expect to hold our attention. I'd be leary of using the sensor tho. After this whole NSA scandal, big companies are under a microscope and should be. Stop giving the government my personal data thank you very much.
