Apple’s forthcoming iPad 5 could debut with the same Touch ID fingerprint sensor found in the iPhone 5S, if a new purported photo is to be believed.

Chinese news website ctechcn.com posted the photo and it appears to show that the fifth-generation iPad will have a home button that incorporates the Touch ID sensor. The sensor, a result of Apple acquiring fingerprint security company AuthenTec last July, currently features on the new iPhone 5S and lets users unlock their device via fingerprint recognition.

It won’t be long to wait to see if the TouchID sensor does feature on Apple’s latest iPads – the firm is expected to unveil the iPad 5 and second-generation iPad mini at a launch event on October 22.
