Apple never ceases to surprise its users across the globe. With iPhone X, the tech giant brought Face ID and related fun (read animojis). And now the same fun continues on the devices with larger screens aka iPad.
Yes, you read that right. If you believe the words of developer Steve Troughton-Smith, Apple is designing a future iPad with Face ID, and its indications are given in the latest iOS 12 beta.
According to Steve (it’s sheer coincidence that he shares his first name with Apple’s founder), Apple has prepared its AvatarKit, which is a framework powering Animoji, for iPad. However, it lacks in TrueDepth camera, which is exclusively available in iPhone X only. But there are chances that Apple will change this to install the feature in its new iPads coming this September.
Apple is likely to introduce Face ID future iPads
In its iOS 12, Apple has made some changes that indicate the upcoming iPad will have an edge-to-edge screen with Face ID.
Moreover, iPad supports the same control gestures as you find in iPhone X; this clearly nullifies a need for a home button. Add to this, Apple has redesigned the status bar to adjust a notch.
The developer hinted that Face ID would not be exclusive to the iPhone X as AvatarKit framework, which was found only in iPhone X firmware, is available to the iPad in iOS 12 beta.
The only challenge for Apple is to install TrueDepth technology to the iPad. This feature does real-time face tracking.
Apple is likely to introduce its expensive iPad Pro models with Face ID and edge-to-edge displays. Faster processors with a custom Apple GPU are also rumored in media of late.
Bloomberg has published a report in the last week of May, which claimed that Apple is likely to come up with new iPads this September.
The brand may introduce Face ID feature in the future iPad Pro, which will be a high-end range for Apple fans.
If Apple packs Face ID feature in its iPad, users will get more secure gadgets to store their data safely.
Let’s hope users don’t find the notch awkward while watching videos on the larger screens; however, in iPhone X, many users raised this concern, and they got rid of this notch on their smartphone.
Will you welcome the new iPads with Face ID? Do you think there should be Face ID in all the future iPads and iPhones?
