We are yet to properly put the iPhone X Face ID recognition system into a test, but news reaching us says, Apple is planning to add TrueDepth camera and Face ID as an upgrade in its iPad Pro 2018 edition.
That is based on the report from highly-placed analyst called Ming-Chi of KGI securities. He has a decent record when it comes to producing Apple plans. However, it is not clear whether the tech giant will also ditch the home button of 2018 iPad Pro edition.
We are also waiting to know whether Apple will change the screens of its tablet from IPS LCD to OLED, the way it did to the iPhone X this year. The rumor we heard is that the company is planning to roll out a new display technology across all its devices in the future.
Face the future
It makes a lot of sense for iPad or at least iPad Pro to sport Face ID. The developers will get more reasons to start supporting the Face ID technology. This will also show that Apple is very serious about moving to face security as its default security method instead of staying with fingerprint security.
Touch ID enter the market through the same route, appearing first on the iPhone before it was gradually rolled out to the iPad model, and it looks like Apple could follow the same pattern this time around. When Apple was unveiling the iPhone in 2017, the company promised that Face ID was more secure than the fingerprint security.
All this depends on different factors, whether users take the new technology and whether Apple can begin to make required modules in high numbers. The complexity of this Face ID and TrueDepth is tagged as the main reason the premium iPhone release has been delayed.
