In 2018, the new iPad, expect big changes

Apple is doing great in the technology market with its new range of iPhones. This means that it is likely to be without a Home button, just like the tenth-anniversary edition of iPhone.

Apple is reportedly working on a new iPad which will feature the iPhone X's Face ID facial recognition system.

But unlike the iPhone X, Bloomberg reports that the iPad in question won't have an OLED display, which provides greater clarity and more vivid colors than typical LCDs.

Geskin's visions are usually pretty close to the mark - and this latest batch look like they could have lifted straight from Apple's Chief Design Officer Jony Ive's Mac Pro, featuring the same slim-bezelled design as the recently-released iPhone X. There are some reports which also suggest that, Apple will bring this Face ID feature to all the upcoming devices that would be announced laterally.

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.

Similar to the iPhone X, the new iPads could have edge-to-edge glass due to the lack of home button.

Apple might be planning to launch two iPhone X successors with OLED displays in 2018, according to popular Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities.

Will the new iPad have a glass back and charge wirelessly? This new tablet would use Face ID for unlocking and for making payments, as well as for sending animated emojis that match the user's facial expression. Most notably, the Home button may be disappearing from the next generation of iPads on some models in favor of Face ID. But he also mentioned that the feature will be limited to high-end iPad model only. But demand waned and global tablet sales declined 17 percent the past three years. So, the new generation iPad would be announced in next year i.e.in September month. This is the first time Apple is going to make such changes since the introduction of the iPad in 2010.
