    I can get the current iPad through my AT&T Next account now, or should I just wait for the "New iPad," is there going to any MAJOR differences between the current one now, and the one thats going to be released this week?

    One major thing I would like to know is if the New iPad will have TouchID or not? That would be a major selling point for me!

    If anyone else knows of any features please let me know! Thank You!

    PS: I know that nobody knows all the specs but some of you know a lot more than I do about the iPad that is coming out this week.

    1. Firm...Better Camera, slightly smaller casing, slightly lighter in weight.

    2. A firm maybe with the fingerPrint reader

    3. Firm...Better CPU A7X (Faster)

    Google is your friend. Just google rumored spec's on new iPad 5 and get information from that source

    Edited: PS: Just read the first two to three pages of this MacRumor iPad section for rumors of the iPad 5 and Mini 2.

    wait, It's only going to be another couple of days, and the old ipad if anything will go down in price when the new one comes out.

    As you said touch id will be a major selling feature so just wait the extra two days and see if ti has it or not.

    It would be a VERY bad decision to buy the old one now

    ----------

    New design with thinner bezel, much thinner size, and much lighter is not significant?

    twice as fast, better graphics, and a better camera not significant?

    touch id not significant?

    I think as seperate features they are not very significant, but put together they create a VERY substantial upgrade

    Since iOS 7 makes iPad 4 feel old, that alone would be the reason. I was going to keep my iPad 4 until next year, but since the iOS 7 upgrade, I just can't stand the overall lag, so iPad 5 it is as soon as it comes out.

    Yeah, I am just going to wait and get the iPad 5 wifi+4G with AT&T.

    I was just getting a little antsy because I have the money to get an iPad now and I was just going to get the 4, but it makes sense to just wait 2 days, haha.

    Thanks for all the comments!

    No lag. There must be something wrong with your device. Check it.

    Since the iPad 5 will have an A7X chip, and the 4/3/2 do not. > That is major

    Since the iPad 5 will have the Touch ID, and the 4/3/2 do not. > That's major

    Since the iPad 5 will be lighter/thinner than the others. > That's major, and most welcomed

    Sorry Sangdushi. Your thinking process on this is flawed at best. Please think before you post. ;)

    Yes, since you don't notice the lag, then everyone complaining is just wrong....:rolleyes:

    You are not everyone. Being unable to service an iPad is something special.

    Regarding the 4G option, check with your carrier to see if they allow tethering from your phone. My Wifi-only iPad becomes a 3G iPad when I have my iPhone around (which, of course, is all the time). It's perfect when I have a passenger in the car and they can use the iPad for maps instead of the smaller iPhone screen. You could save yourself a chunk of cash!

    iPhone, iPhone 3G (Black), iPhone 3GS 32gb(White), iPhone 4 32gb (Black), iPad 32gb, iPhone 4S 32gb Macbook Air 2011, iPhone 5 32gb Slate.


    Look at the OP's signature.

    Are you REALLY asking this question?
    Why in the world would somebody buy an Ipad4 today, when the decisions will be much easier on Tuesday.?

    Somebody shoot me!
