New iPad 2018 model tipped with iPhone X facial recognition tech

A major change to the appearance of iPads could give users a reason to upgrade their existing tablets and attract new users. Although the side bezels of iPads have shrunken slightly between some generations, removing much of the top and bottom bezels could greatly mimic an oversized iPhone X. Bloomberg said Apple also wants to slim down the bezels around the sides and above and below the screen, which means it might be a slate that's nearly entirely a display.

Apple is allegedly working on a few different models, with at least one new model of this high-end new iPad having a screen roughly the size of the current 10.5-inch iPad Pro. However, the inclusion of an OLED display is unlikely due to cost and lack of choice of suppliers.

The sources go on to indicate that the new iPad may not see a 2018 release if manufacturing and supply constraints affect the Face ID components. But demand waned and global tablet sales declined 17 percent the past three years.

Now there are two versions of the iPad Pro available - a second-generation 12.9-inch model, and a 10.5-inch model released in June, 2017. Still, the iPad has brought Apple $4.8 billion of revenue in the past quarter alone. In fact, the excitement surrounding the iPhone X launch was so strong that we even saw a return of large throngs of people queuing up outside of Apple retail stores on launch day and throughout the weekend. The report also said the Apple is preparing a new version of the Apple Pencil to unveil along with the new tablets. Face ID was introduced on the iPhone X which began shipping earlier this month. 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.
