Looks like it's the Mini 2 with Touch ID.
I was wondering this as well. Aside from Touch ID, everything they listed is identical to the previous Mini.
cant beleive that is 100 bucks more over mini 2 or was it 50
Hmm, they glossed over the Mini 3 so fast I'm pretty sure there wasn't any processor improvement... edit: yes it is an A7.
That surprised me - if it's a Mini 2 with Touch ID (like, A7 chip and everything) and they're charging $100 more for it, that's insane!
Everyone should buy the second gen if that's true. And it's $100 cheaper now.
specs are up on the site. yes 100 more for just touch id
Because it's the same as the mini 2 but with Touch ID.
I just want to know if people will pay an extra $100 for Touch ID ?
it's the a7.
Not too bothered, simply means keeping my iPad mini another year is now painless. I think it would be crazy to upgrade simply for Touch ID.
They have made the decision easy
Mini 3 only gets touchID..
They are really trying to seperate the want for the Air from the Mini now by keeping the Mini 1 year ago CPU speeds..
Oh well, definately getting Air 2.
Specs are all live on the site now:
I can't believe they didn't make it thinner like they did with the Air 2! The Air 2 is now 1.4mm thinner than the mini.
Well, they lowered mini 2 price for 100 so..
TouchID is not worth $100.. I'm not sure what Apple was thinking for the "Mini 3" that has a $20 part added and nothing else changed.
EXACTLY (Plus I feel less guilty having bought yet another expensive case for my current rMini)
Ridiculous that they are now offering 3 versions of the Mini. There is no reason for it. They don't need a device at every $50 price point. Consolidate the supply chain into one iPad mini and sell out old supplies of the old one. 3 different versions that are each only incrementally different???
Looks ridiculous, looks like I'll be keeping my iPad Mini 2.
they were too ashamed to do it
They're trying to push us towards the Air by making it so much thinner and lighter.
Sucks but it seems like the Mini will be seen as the "casual" device.
i bet the new ipad mini 3 also has just 1gb of ram
The Mini size is close to the iPhone 6 Plus.. therefore I see a phasing out of the Mini eventually.. this is the start!
I hope not.
If this is so, why did they play up the fact that the Mini has the 100 percent approval rating?
I can't imagine they'd try to kill of a product that gets so high acclaim. I'm assuming they're just going to lag it behind the flagship every year.
I think most iPad mini 2 owners are going to feel the same way as you do.
Of course, since it's still using A7 chip.
Yep I feel this way too, looks like I'll be using my iPad Mini 2 for another year and see what next year brings.
Like others are saying now, maybe to make the larger iPad the power user's choice and the Mini more casual then?
