Apple is reportedly ditching the home button for its 2018 iPad

Apple's next iPad will steal the iPhone X's best features

The sources, speaking to Bloomberg, claim that at least one iPad model with around a 10.5-inch display is in the pipeline, and that it will feature Face ID.

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 updated and redesigned tablet is expected to be launched next year. The company is also working on a new version of Apple Pencil along with new software tools. It appears making these panels at scale for a much bigger device is too much of a technical and financial hassle. KGI already predicted that Face ID will come to the iPad Pro lineup in 2018, and today's report adds several additional details including the possibility of a redesign. But we don't want Apple to rest on its laurels, and we're keen to see what Sir Jony Ive's design team comes up with when the Apple Pencil 2 is unveiled.

It was only a matter of time before Apple would port its iPhone X (Amazon, $1234.55) features to an iPad.

OLED screens can more accurately reproduce colours, but they are more hard to produce in mass quantities than standard liquid-crystal displays. This will further mirror changes introduced with the iPhone X and allow the iPad to look more modern next to its bezel-less Windows and Android rivals. This would especially be beneficial for the larger iPad Pro which has the same design as the first-gen model from 2015. But demand waned and global tablet sales declined 17 percent the past three years.

Apple is planning to overhaul its iPad for 2018, slicing away bezels along with the TouchID fingerprint sensor. Keeping this in mind Apple has upgraded the device's capabilities in successive years for the use of business and professional users. We'll have to wait and see. Also, the feature is limited to Apple customers in USA right now.
