Face ID technology may be coming to iPad Pro

There's a lot less immediate external pressure to build an edge-to-edge display iPad so Apple may not have quite as stiff a challenge with the component tetris as it did in the iPhone X. Thus I wouldn't expect a notch up top as opposed to just a more robust front-facing array on the device's forehead, though Kuo did not offer any guidance in his report.

Post the launch of Apple's iPhone X and iPhone 8 devices, rumors are abuzz about the company's next offering - the 2018 iPad Pro tablet.

However, the iPhone X isn't out yet and Apple hasn't yet received feedback from users on the new security feature.

With its exceptional media strategy, Apple is able to create heavy buzz around its iPhone launch events.

The iPhone X isn't available for pre-order until closer to the end of this month.


These latest improvements are particularly housed in the iPhone 8 and the larger counterpart, but neither of these new handsets include the OLED Display technology.

Apple iPhone X sales won't gain momentum until next year due to ongoing production issues. Obviously we all know what an iPhone X looks like but this video is most interesting because of the iPhone X wallpaper shown.

The Face ID is quite an advanced technology as Apple has explained to us and is probably the best facial recognition out there but are you ready to move over to the new authentication method?

Face ID uses a cutting-edge and first of its kind TrueDepth Camera System made up of a u dot projector (50,000 dots), 3D infrared camera and flood illuminator, and is powered a neural engine embedded inside the by A11 Bionic system-on-chip processor to accurately map your unique facial feature to recognize your face. But once the iPhone X manufacturing issues are resolved, the phone's sales will likely to pick up in the first half of 2018.

It's not clear what the fate of the Home button and Touch ID will be now that Face ID is gaining prominence.
