IPad Pro to ship with Face ID in 2018

A 10.5-inch model will likely include Face ID so you can unlock the device, authenticate Apple Pay and, of course, send Animoji.

The report also claims Apple is working on a new version of the Apple Pencil stylus to release alongside the 2018 iPad Pro. One iPhone X feature not coming to the iPad is an OLED display. It said that the new iPad will have iPhone X features such as slimmer edges and facial recognition, according to people familiar with the matter. Without the need of a Home button Apple will be able to reduce the edges of the iPad giving a larger screen.

The sources go on to indicate that the new iPad may not see a 2018 release if manufacturing and supply constraints affect the Face ID components.

Tablet sales have taken a 17 percent decline globally over the last three years and Apple certainly felt it.

However, the new version of the tablet is unlikely to include an OLED screen, which provides more vivid colors and sharper clarity, the people said. Apple couldn't avoid the downdraft completely and iPad revenue fell behind sales generated by the company's services business and Macintosh computer products. It is much more hard to produce large quantities of OLED panels than it is to manufacture LCDs.

The iPad itself is enjoying a bit of a renaissance this year, thanks largely to the launch of the 10.5-inch iPad Pro and the new, affordable 9.7-inch iPad. Bloomberg said a different model will, meaning it might not carry the "iPad Pro" moniker. Would it bother you to have a notch on your iPhone X and symmetrical bezels on your iPad Pro? Early reception has been positive for the feature, which also allows for payment authentication and sending Animojis, an animated emoji based on a user's facial movements and speech.
