iPad 4, indicating a possible new home button with the venerable Touch ID sensor might make its way on the iPad 5, too.The alleged ribbon cable of the iPad 5 has been leaked, and the part where the home key goes is rather different than the flex cable we have on the
Of course, given that the new iPad will have a slimmer, more compact body due to reworks in the screen's lighting, the ribbon cable might have received a new design because of that, though in that case the home button contact part would have stayed the same. In any case, the announcement is expected in the last week of October, so we should know more pretty soon.

Come on Apple, just release the iPads already. I need my Space Grey iPad mini 2 with Retina display, A7 chip, and Touch ID.

not trying to be a downer here, but theres a good chance you'll have to wait till the beginning of next year, if apple decides to only release the retina mini when the supplies can suffice a certain percentage of the demand. though I do hope they release it this month. fingers crossed..
