According to Apple Insider and a number of other Apple news sites there’s growing evidence that Apple may be bringing the Touch ID feature to the next generation of iPads.
Poking around in code for the Touch ID framework in iOS 7.1, Twitter user and developer “UNiCORN”found a reference to Apple’s iPad lineup, potentially suggesting that the next-generation iPad mini and iPad Air may sport the company’s fingerprint scanning technology.
I haven’t used an iPhone in years and haven’t tried out Touch ID as yet. I imagine it’s a pretty useful alternative for quick access to a mobile device.
It would be interesting to see this feature come to the iPad, but it’s far from top of my wish list for the next gen models. More RAM is my top wish in terms of hardware updates and swipe typing is by far and away the single iOS feature I’d most like to see added.
What are your thoughts on Touch ID? Is this a big one on your next iPad wish list?
