Apple’s three new iPhones later this year will come with Face ID so it should come as no surprise that the company is also planning to bring the technology to the new iPad.
Apple recently released the first beta of their iOS 11.3 software and it would appear that there are hints in the OS that Apple is planning a new iPad. This new device is referred to as ‘modern iPad’ in iOS 11.3, when the iPhone X was first discovered in iOS it was listed as ‘modern iPhone’.
This suggests that Apple is launching a an updated iPad this year and the device is likely to include Apple’s Face ID technology. This would mean that Apple would ditch the home button on the iPad and there would also be a notch at the top of the display for all of the Face ID technology.
As yet we have to heard many details about what other hardware the iPad will come with, it is not clear as yet on whether this will be a new iPad Pro or whether Apple is planning to introduce face ID to all models including the standard iPad. we suspect that the high end models will be the first ones to get the technology.
As soon as we get some more details on this updated iPad, including some actual pictures of the device and a full list of specifications, we will let you guys know.
