    I've heard from a supposed reliable source that there is an iPad "Pro" with TouchID coming out before Xmas. Any thoughts? I would think there would be rumor galore by now....

    Not a chance. The holiday lineup is set.

    Cheers,

    Unfortunately Apple claimed at the end of the last iPad event "this is our product line for the Holiday season". That is not an exact quote but that statement kind of kills any new devices being launched before Christmas.

    Whoever started that rumor is an idiot.

    Do you seriously think Apple would set up their factory production lines for a month to build a product that they know is already obsolete, then retool them the next month and change all of their ads, when most buyers have already bought theirs? Then exchange them all when everyone freaks?

    Tell your "source" to use his/her head. :rolleyes:

    Christmas of what year? Maybe that will be part of the lineup for next October, but as others have said, they already have their full holiday lineup for this year.

    There's gonna be a 5 foot iPad Maxi that doubles as a hover board, in stores later today.

    Just figured I'd throw it out there just in case.

    There are rumors, and there is silly talk.

    This one falls under the label of silly talk.

    People keep dreaming here.

    If Apple added Touch ID it would be a busy process updating Ipod touch, Iphone 5C, Ipad Mini and Ipad. With limited supplies and shortages it's never going to happen.

    I still can't believe all this hype over a button. I still use passcodes with my 5S not finger prints. :rolleyes:

    Your mistaking fantasy for rumor. This happens often here :D

    Maybe there's room for a "Mac fantasy" web site. I'd go :)

    In this case ya do.

    I also heard that the next iPad will be solid gold and, since Apple had such a big success with Mavericks, they'll be giving the iPad away free, too!:p

    Haha not the same at all...comparing the potential for apple to place it's #1 selling phone on the #1 cellular network is nothing close to saying apple will never launch a brand new redesigned iPad pro within a month or 2 after the launch of another brand new redesigned iPad Air...

    Totally insane comment. Heck, this is totally insane rumor.

    This supposed "source" is probably talking about the recently announced ipad air that many thought might have the touchid.

    Your source is an idiot.

    What some thought was rumors like a larger screen on the iPhone 5 became true.

    I am not saying the iPad Pro is total rumor, but Apple has done things lately that are not business as usual. Before Christmas, I do not think so.

    ----------

    I remember when a larger iPhone screen was "silly talk" but:rolleyes:

    It's October. A larger iPad by Xmas is just silly talk.

    Will a larger iPad happen? Maybe. That's not rumor, it's speculation.

    A rumor that Apple will release a 12" iPad in two months time is just silly talk.

    Everyone thought the iPad mini and iPad 4 coming out at the end of Oct so soon after the iPhone was silly talk...and look what happened. Apple had confirmed it to the company I worked for and I knew the rumor was true but everyone was in denial right up until the announcement.
