Put simply the iPad mini 3 demands an extra £80 for TouchID and the option to choose the gold colour finish. That's a significant premium over the iPad mini 2, which is the better buy. If you...

Great size, good screen
TouchID integrated
Amazing display, excellent battery life, fast processor, great 3D graphics, easy to use, app store still number one for quality and variety
Excellent screen and design iOS 88.1 features, including timelapse and Apple Pay Touch ID fingerprint scanner adds convenience
Though we're disappointed by the lack of upgrades
Same as last year, iPad mini 2 offers far better value for money

Still great, now with more storage options and Touch ID
The addition of Touch ID for securing the tablet Apple Pay

You should save your cash and get the iPad Mini 2
