Currently, True Depth camera systems are in short supply and one of the suspected hold ups in large-scale i Phone X manufacturing. Given how important both Face ID and AR are to Apple's future plans, we'll certainly see it on i Pad as soon as possible.
While i Phone release dates have been stable for years, i Pad release dates have varied greatly.
The devices will reportedly have no Home button, much like the i Phone X, and feature slimmer bezels.
Since then the i Pad has gone mini, gone Pro, and totally gone mainstream.
According to a new report from Digitimes, Apple's next iteration of the 9.7-inch i Pad may start at 9 and arrive in the second quarter of 2018.
Apple is considering a new inexpensive 9.7-inch i Pad priced at around US, according to sources from related upstream suppliers, which added that the device should be able to attract more demand from price-oriented consumers, allowing Apple to maintain its present 10 million-unit tablet shipments a quarter. A new story from Bloomberg reiterates previous reports that Face ID would come to Apple's i Pad lineup in 2018, likely through the i Pad Pro.
[...] It is reported that this year Apple is expected to launch the new i Pad Pro is about 11 inches.
The 11-inch screen could be the result of Apple reducing the size of the bezels on the current 10.5-inch i Pad Pro but keeping the same casing.
