IPad with Face ID May Come in 2018

The sources also reportedly said that Face ID will replace the Touch ID-equipped Home button, which has been on the tablet since 2014. The iPhone X is $200 more than the newly released iPhone 8 Plus thanks to its OLED upgrade.

Dropping the home button on the iPad would allow for a larger screen in the same physical footprint.

Apple is probably also limiting the number of devices that feature an OLED display simply because of the shortage. More likely is early 2018 alongside the annual iPad refresh which we hope will have Face ID. The new version will mark the first revamped look for the iPad since the first iPad Pro debuted in 2015. Now, Apple has had some positive results with rising iPad sales to account for $4.8 billion of revenue during its last fiscal reporting period.

One key iPhone X enhancement that is unlikely to make its way to iPads next year is an OLED - or organic light-emitting diode - screen, according to people familiar with Apple's supply chain. Bloomberg says that the majority of display suppliers don't have the ability to make OLED panels for the iPad, with only Samsung Display being the exception.

Though the iPad Pro will get an iPhone X-like redesign, the Bloomberg report notes that the company is "unlikely" to swap the tablet's existing display for OLED technology as Apple would likely face supply constraints.

Lack of the home button on the iPhone X hasn't been a big deal for many users, but getting rid of the home button on the iPad could lead to some UX problems - especially with all the multitasking gestures on iOS 11 that already make the iPad confusing to use in some cases. Apple's facial recognition system can be used to unlock the tablet, make payments and send animated emojis, the media outlet clarified.
