Redesigned iPad with Face ID tipped to launch next year

The bad news, though, is that the upcoming iPad will not be equipped with an OLED display.

The report says that Apple is working on a redesigned iPad lineup that will be ditching the power button or the Touch ID for the Face ID.

Of course, with the Apple iPhone X getting such a huge design upgrade, we were expecting to see the same happen to the Apple iPad as well.

While introducing these new features to the next-generation iPad, Apple will drop the home button, which has come with a fingerprint scanner since 2014. The latest iPad Pros also feature a higher refresh rate for lower latency when using Apple Pencil. Year-to-date, AAPL has gained 54.06%, versus a 17.57% rise in the benchmark S&P 500 index during the same period. The display of the iPad will look similar to the iPad Pro. This is why Apple is looking for ways to make the product popular again. The company nearly never comments on unannounced products and rumours. According to Bloomberg: "The Cupertino, California-based company reported last week that iPad revenue rose 14 percent to $4.8 billion in the fiscal fourth quarter, with an 11 percent increase in the number of units sold".

North Korea has said in public statements that it wants an official end to the Korean War. Recent drills over South Korea by two USA strategic bombers have further raised tensions.

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. The wireless charging feature would also be a nice way to offer a complete range of Apple devices that can all be charged on a single surface at night, avoiding plugging in more devices.

However, the new iPads will reportedly not come with an OLED screen - unlike the iPhone X. The new phone was Apple's first smartphone to feature the alternative screen technology, that allows for darker brights and more extreme contrast.

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.
