    Does the new iPad pro have the Touch ID 2.0 from the iPhone 6s?

    I've also been wondering but it doesn't seem like it has 2nd Gen Touch ID sadly. If it had, it'd of been mentioned in the keynote or in the Tech Specs of the iPad on Apple's website.

    Please don't rub it in much harder. If the 9.7" has updated touchID sensor, then this is a huge F YOU to 13" IPP buyers. Next time I hear Phil Schiller speak out I'm going to yell out BULL S***!

    "Most advanced iPad Pro (speaking about the 13") ever - MY A*****"

    Wait...how do we know this? I would assume it has the newest touch sensor.

    Compare this page http://www.apple.com/ipad/compare/ with http://www.apple.com/iphone/compare/

    If it has the 2nd generation Touch ID, it will say "Second-generation fingerprint sensor built into the Home button", otherwise "Fingerprint sensor built into the Home button".

    Lol....it's truly a bigger ipad with the advantage of stylus support......if we sit here and actually think about it, it was never a pro device.....apple did us like they usually do us....take our money and gimp us at the end.....everything is pro now because apple wants more profits.....

    The lack of second-generation Touch ID caused me to seriously rethink my decision to buy this. As a iPhone 6s user I absolutely love the fast Touch ID on my phone. The lack of second generation makes me think of the number of times I would redo my scan because I would release the home button too soon.

    Whilst I agree they should have included the second generation of Touch ID in the Pro I don't think it's as crucial or important as it is on the iPhone. You're not going to use the Touch ID on the iPad for in store purchases for example. In general it has less uses on the iPad then on the iPhone.

    Pretty sure the Touch ID is first generation otherwise Apple would have advertise it heavily.

    Sadly it's definitely 1st generation à la iPhone 6 and iPad Air 2. Not a patch on the 6s. Great pity that Apple has to penny pinch in this way, especially as the iPad Pro is so expensive.

    I kinda agree with you, you aren't probably going to use it as much and therefore isn's as big of a deal, even though the use of ApplePay isn't even an option here in Finland (and I think it won't be possible even in the near future). But I think as I am accustomed to the fastness of the second-gen Touch ID going back to the first gen is going to need some rethinking in using both versions side-by-side. In the end it is however just a little nuisance.

    You guys are making out like the 1st gen TouchID is rubbish. It's not. It's fast and reliable, just a tad slower than the 2nd gen on the 6S.

    The difference is so insignificant that it should not factor into any purchasing decisions.

    While my iP6S might react a bit faster no issues with the response time on my iPP and Mini3. So what ...

    It's a matter of opinion I suppose, but when I upgraded from an iP6 to an iP6s I felt that there was a very significant difference in the speed of the TouchID.

    I hope that I'm wrong because the iPad Pro 9.7 appeals a lot, especially for the sound and the screen. :)

    Can't say I've had any issues unlocking my 12.9" Pro with Touch ID so far. I've certainly never been left waiting or thinking it's taking too long to unlock compared to my iPhone.

    So, personally, I couldn't care less if the 9.7" had an all new third generation that unlocked 0.0003ms faster.

    Can't believe that some people are making this out to be a deal breaker - move on.

    It's not like first gen is even slow. It's like the difference between a full second and a half second. I can't believe some people consider it a deal breaker one way or the other.

    i'm constantly switching between iPad Mini 4 (1st gen TouchID) and iPhone 6S (2nd gen). Hardly a deal breaker at all.

    Newer version would be nice, but minimal issue for me. I switch on/sleep my iPad drastically less than I do my phone so the time it'll waste will be a 100th of how long it took to type this post.

    This!

    I can understand needing it on the phone as you're doing many things at once (possibly even driving). But I HIGHLY doubt one is iPadding while driving or doing other things. It commands your attention and its not something you can half-ass like your phone.

    TouchID v1 vs v2 for an iPad = who the f*¢k cares? If THAT matters to you, then you obviously aren't the target market for the iPP...those of which actually make use of the features it was made for.
