According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, versions of the Apple iPad Pro to be unveiled next year will include the TrueDepth Camera, like the one found on the Apple iPhone X. Kuo had previously also predicted that all the 2018 iPhone models will feature Face ID.

Of the entire iPad line, it makes sense that Apple would reserve Face ID for the top-of-the-line Pro model because of the yield problems, and Kuo said this as well. Additionally, those companies may drop plans to put fingerprint sensors underneath displays, which Apple was reportedly trying to do with the iPhone X. In fact, even the second place was reserved for Apple as the larger iPhone model, the iPhone 7 Plus took the spot for the second most sold smartphone globally. Now, it seems that Apple might bring its FaceID feature to its iPad series and iPad Pro 2018 models will be the first to get it.

The good news, though, is that Apple has reportedly addressed any lingering production issues relating to the iPhone X's TrueDepth camera system.

This is the first time when Apple will not be able to upgrade its users with the latest smartphone.

As AppleInsider points out, having additional devices with Face ID could help Apple convince developers to build the feature into their apps. Moreover, Android OEMs are expected to ditch under-screen fingerprint technology in favor of researching face scanning techniques.

The Apple iPhone X is all set to launch in India on 3 November from Rs 89,000 onwards from Apple Authorised retailers.

Importantly, we haven't seen all that Apple has to show off with the TrueDepth Camera. The design of the iPhone's first ever OLED display, including its soon to be notorious notch, is already public knowledge.

Consider that final September sales in the analyst's Apple Monitor experienced a 17% monthly climb, a marked improvement from the average rise of 13% throughout the last 12 years. On average, equities analysts expect that Apple Inc. will post $9.01 EPS for the current fiscal year.
