Apple's next iPad will have face recognition instead of home button

Apple's iPad could drop the home button and add Face ID in 2018

The feature would replace the iPad home button that has come with a fingerprint scanner since 2014, one of the people said.

With the removal of the Home button, Apple will conceivably be able to create an iPad with much slimmer bezels at the top and bottom of the device.

Obviously, Apple taking the technical achievements of its iPhone X and spreading them around its other products was bound to happen, but if it really is in the next iPad revision then Apple's moving pretty quickly to capitalize on its main iPhone X innovations. The revised iPad will also likely include a new, faster CPU, as well as an updated Apple Pencil stylus.

The first tablet to mirror the most recognisable change of the iPhone X could arrive later next year, the sources say.

Today's details from Bloomberg shared that next year's iPad Pros will adopt Face ID, which KGI also recently predicted.

Trump Places New Restrictions On Travel And Trade To Cuba
Wednesday his administration released its new Cuba regulations - and ironically, private Cuban entrepreneurs may get hit worst.

Notably, the general consensus surrounding Face ID is that the feature works exactly as advertised.

The report states that that this new iPad will have a similar sized display to the current 10.5-inch iPad Pro but will get rid of the current Home button with Touch ID in favor of the new Face ID technology introduced with the iPhone X.

As depicted in the image above, we believe the new iPad will still have some bezels due to the way tablets are held compared to smartphones. It's certainly not a feature most people will want to take advantage of, but on the off chance it might be of some help to you, it's nice to know that it's there.

After years in steady decline, the iPad has bounced back to post year-on-year growth in the last couple of quarters.
