Next year Apple will introduce upgraded iPad Pro, which will be equipped with face scanner Face ID. This was reported by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities.
Kuo didn’t mention what will become of the design and form-factor tablets. No information about the new design, no Home button or OLED screen no.
Kuo also said that all new devices will receive Face ID. This year’s technology will remain exclusive to the iPhone X.
2018 will the iPad Pro be the only tablet that will receive the scanner. This is due to their scarcity and the premium segment: the company Lumentrum that manufactures scanners do not cope with the huge number of orders from Apple and they in turn will not install them in the budget device.
Already 3 Nov iPhone X will go on sale. Then we’ll know how it works Face ID, with what speed and whether it can be fooled. If you compare the technology with fingerprint scanner Touch ID, plus she has more, but now it is solely opinion.
The new tablets can be in the first half of 2018.
