Apple could bring Face ID to iPad Pro by next year

By : |October 10, 2017 0

Apple is bringing its face scanning technology to iPad Pro. The company will add its TrueDepth Camera that enables iPhone X’s Face ID technology to next year’s iPad Pro, as reported by 9to5Mac. The prediction comes from KGI analyst Ming Chi-Kuo who has earlier successfully predicted many of Apple’s moves.

If the prediction is true, Apple could be employing Face ID in two ways- it could build the camera into the iPad’s upper bezel, beside where the selfie camera is, or probably an iPhone X-style redesign of the iPad Pro is on the way. The report doesn’t specify what may happen to the Home button and Touch ID fingerprint recognition.

The report also notes that TrueDepth camera being available on both iPhone and iPad will increase developer adoption.

Kuo predicts that all future iPhones will ditch TouchID in favor of Face ID beginning next year. The iPhone X, Apple’s first product with a TrueDepth Camera for Face ID, is set to release on November 3. It’s not clear when the company plans to introduce new iPad Pro models, but the new devices could come as soon as the first half of 2018.
