No one can believe Apple had the audacity to slap a $3.50 Touch ID sensor and sell the iPad mini 3 as an upgrade to last year's model. This decision by Apple is being panned across multiple message boards and comments sections of articles. I have never seen such an overwhelming negative reaction to an Apple product in recent times. I think Apple slipped up big time here thinking that somehow people will not notice the previous gen internals in the mini 3 and that Touch ID enough is alone to warrant a new model name and the $100 premium. I hope they come to their senses and not try to insult the intelligence of consumers, most of whom are pretty informed and tech savvy these days.
