Apple 'To Add' iPhone X's Face ID To Next iPad In 2018

Apple's next iPad will steal the iPhone X's best features

They asked not to be identified talking about private product development.

The report suggests the new iPad will feature a screen size similar to the current 10.5-inch iPad Pro but will be smaller in terms of physical dimensions, thanks to the slimmer bezels.

Apple is reportedly working on a new tablet that could be ready by early next year.

Ever since the first iPad was unveiled, its design has largely remained the same: A thin (ish) black rectangle that transmits social media streams of stupidity at you, finished off by the iconic home button at the bottom. The estimated time when the new iPad will be launched is in the fall of 2018.

Apple is no doubt hoping the changes will reignite iPad sales, which have lagged in recent years amid a glut of tablets from competitors in the marketplace.

The last updated iPad was launched in June with a bigger 10.5-inch display that has a ProMotion screen to make jumping between tasks smoother. Refocusing Apple regularly presents the iPad as the future of personal computing, claiming its portable form factor, accessibility and security make it a better choice than regular computers. In the fiscal fourth quarter, iPad revenue jumped by 14% to #4.8 billion.

In spite of Cook's noncommittal respond, all indication point to the iPhone X being very tough to find this very year. The wireless charging feature would also be a nice way to offer a complete range of Apple devices that can all be charged on a single surface at night, avoiding plugging in more devices.

Furthermore the report reveals a new, improved Apple Pencil will be released next year.

It sounds like Apple is trying to take the key features from the iPhone X and stick them in an iPad. KGI already predicted that Face ID will come to the iPad Pro lineup in 2018, and today's report adds several additional details including the possibility of a redesign.
