Apple’s new iPhone X is the first of the company’s devices that will feature Face ID, the handset will go on sale next month. Now it would appear that Apple will also add Face ID to next years iPad Pro.
According to a recent report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will also launch a new 2018 iPad Pro that will feature Face ID and a TrueDepth Camera.
We predict iOS devices to be equipped with TrueDepth Camera in 2018F will include iPhone X and 2018 new iPhone and iPad models. Because of this, we believe more developers will pay attention to TrueDepth Camera/ facial recognition related applications. We expect Apple’s (US) major promotion of facial recognition related applications will encourage the Android camp to also dedicate more resources to developing hardware and facial recognition applications.
Apple introduced two new models of the iPad Pro earlier this year. The new devices launched back in June, so we will probably have to wait until June of next year to see the new models with Face ID.
Apple will launch their new iPhone X with Face ID on the 3rd of November, the handset will go up for pre-order later this month on the 27th of October. As soon as we get some more details about the new iPad Pro, we will let you guys know.
