I was pondering this idea today. There is quite a bit of speculation on what the final iPad 5 will include. Touch ID or not, what camera, which chip and how many... With my iPhone, I've been skipping the half step generations. 3 to 4 to 5 have all been pretty big steps in changes of the hardware and software. I have an iPad 2 currently and upgrading will already be a big change, however... Is an iPad that is released on the iPhone half-step cycle worth getting? Or am I stuck waiting for the iPhone/iPad 6 double combo?
