A new research note claims the new iPad Air and Retina iPad mini to be released this year will both come with Touch ID, and an A8 processor. The note comes from KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a mixed track record on new Apple products. Though the idea that Apple would include Touch ID in new iPad models is far from surprising. Kuo also believes the new iPad Air will contain an 8MP camera. Few details about new iPads have emerged this year, suggesting any updates will likely be minor. Kuo also released a product roadmap suggesting mostly second half releases of new Apple products, along with the unlikely idea that the most expensive iWatch model will cost thousands of dollars.
