2018 iPad Pro models to support FaceID

- Adrian Ungureanu

It seems that FaceID, the latest authentication system proposed by Apple, which will debut on the iPhone X, might be installed on the iPad Pro models that are set to be launched next year.

This prediction is made by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo in a note sent to the investors. Kuo believes Apple will add TrueDepth cameras to the iPad Pro to introduce a user experience that’s consistent with the iPhone X and boost competitiveness. With all high-end iOS devices equipped with TrueDepth Cameras, “ecosystem development” will also benefit.

According to Kuo, TrueDepth Cameras will be limited to the iPad Pro, which is Apple’s main flagship tablet device. Kuo also predicts 2018 iPhone models will adopt the new camera technology coming in the iPhone X, as he has mentioned in a previous note.
