True Depth camera and Face ID are the latest features from Apple that have been incorporated on the upcoming iPhone X. Top Apple analyst now believe that these features will soon hit the next version of iPad Pro.
The speculation has been projected by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who has reasons to believe that the premium features will soon be available on the next version of iPad Pro. Kuo stated that Apple wants to offer a premium experience with the iPad Pro which is similar to iPhone X. It is worth mentioning here that iPad pro retails for almost the same price for which iPhone X is planned to be released. In addition, Kuo expects all 2018 iPhone models to sport the TrueDepth Camera and Face ID.
Kuo also specified that these features will only be available on iPad Pro among all the other iPad models. The analyst made these comments in a note sent to KGI's clients today.
The TrueDepth camera feature allows users to unlock the device by simply letting the infrared scanner scan their face. It projects around 30,000 infrared dots to do so. All users need to do is simply give a quick glance to the device. The Face ID, on the other hand, allows users to make payments using the Apple Pay.
If the speculations from Kuo are true, this could lead to a big change for the iPad lineup. It has been observed that iPads are deprived of several technologies that the iPhones boast. However, if Apple decides to put the latest TrueDepth camera and Face ID feature on iPad Pro, the sale for the device could go up considerably.
