Apple's Face ID is coming to next-generation iPad

Apple plans to capitalize on the work it has put in to the iPhone X by launching a similarly designed iPad next year, Bloomberg reports.

Lack of a home button will also make way for an edge-to-edge screen with significantly reduced bezels on the 2018 iPad. They will come with a screen size similar to the 10.5-inch iPad Pro.

The iPhone X is the only Apple device with OLED display in the current line-up, with both the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus sporting LCD displays. However, once it does arrive, users can reportedly expect the Face ID-centric features like Animoji, plus overall more powerful hardware and a new Apple Pencil.

Furthermore, the company is also working at the development of an improved Apple Pencil. While the device will have full-screen design, it is not likely to be equipped with an OLED display for delivering more vivid colors and sharper clarity. Earlier, Kuo predicted that the company will introduce the same Face ID feature in 2018 iPhone models. This will allow the upcoming iPad to have a design similar to the iPhone X, boasting a maximized screen area for a more immersive experience.

Apple will remove the traditional home button from this new generation iPad. The new version will mark the first revamped look for the iPad since the first iPad Pro debuted in 2015.

Rumours of the new iPad follow hot on the heels of speculation that Apple is preparing an augmented reality (AR) headset. There will be also a set of software tools available on the iPad which will be ready to us instantly.

iPad sales have been in steady decline for the past three years.

Apple is planning to overhaul its iPad for 2018, slicing away bezels along with the TouchID fingerprint sensor. When the Apple CEO called as Tim Cook was asked about the manufacture issues by media, he stated that: "We'll definitely see what happens next".
