Here's what an nearly bezel-free iPad Pro 3 could look like

Posted November 10, 2017

The iPhone X arrived with many firsts including a bezel-less OLED display and a FaceID that replaces the good old TouchID. They asked not to be identified talking about private product development.

The company plans to ditch the device's home button and will instead incorporate the new Face ID system now found on the iPhone X.

According to the report, the new iPad will be released "a little more than a year" after the Apple's last iPad Pro update, suggesting it could see a launch sometime around September next year.

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. This may allow Apple to fit a much larger screen in the same chassis as the iPad Pro 10.5. Year-to-date, AAPL has gained 54.06%, versus a 17.57% rise in the benchmark S&P 500 index during the same period. So, "technical constraints" would likely be whether the South Korean company can manufacture enough screens to meet iPad-level demand.

Like the iPhone X, the new iPad is expected to include a faster processor and a custom Apple graphics processing unit, one of the people said. Refocusing Apple regularly presents the iPad as the future of personal computing, claiming its portable form factor, accessibility and security make it a better choice than regular computers. It will be nice to see the iPad finally getting a real design upgrade after all these years.

A video was recently shared on reddit, in which a man demonstrates that his brother was able to unlock his iPhone X. The brothers are not twins, nor do they have a striking resemblance in facial features either. 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. Also, the feature is limited to Apple customers in United States right now. The company is also working on a new version of Apple Pencil along with new software tools.
