I keep reading that it cost $100 more for the touchID, but isn't the $399 the same price as it was before? A few months ago I was looking to buy the Mini for my daughter and it started at $399. When I realized an upgrade was coming, I figured I would wait. It is still $399 and has a minor upgrade or two. I understand the Mini 2 dropped $100 - which is tempting - but I was going to buy the latest version for $399 a few months ago, so it was a no-brainer to just buy the newest version for the same price.
