IPad 2018 could borrow the best features from the iPhone X

09 November, 2017, 01:09 | Author: Darrell Baldwin

The iPad Pro 3 with Face ID is said to have a screen size that's similar to that of the 10.5-inch iPad Pro.

Like the iPhone X, the new iPad is expected to include a faster processor and a custom Apple graphics processing unit, one of the people said. Of course, that means that the new iPad also won't have a home button or Touch ID fingerprint reader.

Why not include an OLED display on the new iPad model?

Just as it did for the iPhone, getting rid of the Touch ID home button will allow Apple to trim the iPad's bottom bezel closer to the device's edge.




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

Of note, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted an iPad Pro 3 with Face ID next year, but we now have a few new details about what the device could have.

Apple allegedly still sees the iPad as the future of mainstream computing and continues investment in the series. The new version will mark the first revamped look for the iPad since the first iPad Pro debuted in 2015. OLED screens more accurately reproduce colors, but are more hard to produce in mass quantities than standard liquid-crystal displays.

However, the media outlet's sources also said that "technical and financial constraints make that unlikely". That said, not everyone is a fan of change, and if you find yourself loving the iPhone X display but otherwise aren't yet ready to let go of the home button, there's a workaround you can implement in iOS 11 that will provide you with a digital home button on the screen. Early reception has been positive for the feature, which also allows for payment authentication and sending Animojis, an animated emoji based on a user's facial movements and speech.
