IPhone X's Face ID tech could be set for iPad Pro

The next version of the iPad Pro, expected in mid-2018, will also have the face-scanning technology, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

As usual for Apple-related predictions, the word comes from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a near ideal track record for such predictions.

Apple iPhone X is one of the most awaited iPhones of this year, all thanks to a new design and FaceID feature.

The company's new iPad with ID feature will be launched on March of next year.

Are you looking forward to using Face ID?

It sounds like one of the most anticipated-and most controversial-features of the iPhone X could be moving to the iPad Pro as soon as next year. The analyst says the manufacturing problems will be solved in the fourth quarter, which will allow Apple to ship more iPhone X units next year.

Apple Korea is expected to open reservations for the new iPhone 8 via the country's top three mobile carriers on October 27, they added.

Importantly, we haven't seen all that Apple has to show off with the TrueDepth Camera.

To accommodate a front screen that is almost all glass, there is no longer a home button-based Touch ID fingerprint scanner on the iPhone X (pictured above with the black frame), such as there was on previous iPhones, including the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (pictured above with the white frames) that launched last month.

The iPad Pro received its last major update in June, in both 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch sizes. Still when it comes for the iPhone purchase there are many factors gets involve: - affordability -storage size need- or because of the increasing reliance on the cloud with features like iCloud or Apple Music streaming.

We all know how impressive the iPhone X is shaping up to be since people can't stop talking about things like the new OLED display and the TrueDepth camera system. In a note to investors, Kuo said the inclusion of this new tech should improve the competitiveness of Apple's tablet range. Further, he said that expanding Face ID to the iPad will increase adoption of it among developers. Pre-orders for iPhone X begin Oct 27, and the phone will be available in stores on Nov 3.
