The ipad isnt much of an upgrade. You. Can keep your ipad 2 for another few years before needing to upgrade.The site was impossible to use around 11pm pacific time. They must have been slammed, but now everyone has given up and it loads fine. Glad I didn't get screwed on this like I did on the 6 Plus on opening night.
You are correct, it's not much of one at all, and certainly has no surprises. But I do like Touch ID for logging into apps and buying things, so that is the sole reason I'm buying it. After this, unless and until some real innovation occurs, I'm not buying another iPad.
