Skip If You Want Face ID

Skip If You Want Face ID

If you want Face ID on your next iPad, you'll want to take a long hard look at the new iPad Pros because the feature isn't on board the iPad mini 5. 

The new iPad Pros were the first iPads to replace Touch ID with Face ID. So instead of using your fingerprint to unlock an iPad Pro, you can use your face which is captured by the the front-facing camera.

Face ID is also available on Apple's newest iPhones.

Unfortunately, the iPad mini 5 skips Face ID. This doesn't come as much of a surprise given that it's a budget alternative to the Pro models.

    The iPad Mini 4 (128GB) is on sale now for $250 and might even drop more on Black Friday. I haven’t heard anything about an imminent iPad Mini 5 release other than this story (I suppose a minor spec bump is possible but I think Apple is pretty much set for the Christmas shopping season with their lineup). In any case a Mini 5 would surely cost double the aforementioned sale price or perhaps $399 for a (32/64GB model). If it’s basically a processor bump without major changes then it might be a pass, but a iPad Pro-like redesign would be worth considering. If the latter I wouldn’t expect it until next year.

    People buy only for prestige and apple branding, these are overrated.

    a 6.5″ 16:9 iPhone XS Max screen is different from a 7.9″ 4:3 iPad Mini screen. Even if you have an XS Max, you will still feel significant difference when using an iPad Mini. Trust me!
