Checkout: iPad Pro Lineup Set To Come With TrueDepth Camera For Face ID Recognition, Next Year

Apple set to dump Fingerprint sensor and moving gradually to Face ID security, iPhone X is the only Apple device as of now that comes with TrueDepth front-facing camera that enables Face ID. But the company has made it clear that the upcoming smartphone won’t be the only Face ID-endowed Apple product for long.

According to a note to Investor Share Today, KGI Securities Ming-Chi Kuo says he believes Apple will add the TrueDepth camera and Face ID functionality to next year’s iPad Pro refresh. This is supposed to boost the competitiveness of the company’s premium tablets. Don’t expect Face ID to come to non-Pro iPads anytime soon, though. On the other hand, all 2018 iPhones should have Face ID built-in.

The iPad Pro Model will be arriving anytime soon, since the last iPad Pro update happened in June this year. Kuo thinks Android device makers will begin researching Face ID-like technology for use in their own products, abandoning under-screen fingerprint recognition in the process. That said, the same analyst also claims Samsung’s Galaxy Note9 will actually sport such an under-display sensor – so perhaps the ‘Android device makers’ referenced here do not include the Korean behemoth.
