Kuo believes Apple will add TrueDepth cameras to the iPad Pro to introduce

a user experience that's consistent with the iPhone X and boost

competitiveness.


														
							

TrueDepth Cameras will be limited to the iPad Pro, which is Apple’s main flagship tablet device. Kuo also predicts 2018 iPhone models will adopt the new camera technology coming in the iPhone X, as he has mentioned in a previous note.

With Apple embracing facial recognition and the TrueDepth Camera, Kuo reiterated that he expects Android smartphone makers to begin researching facial recognition technology, abandoning under-screen fingerprint recognition technology. Apple has a serious lead over its competitors though, with Kuo previously saying it will take up to 2.5 years for Android hardware to catch up with the TrueDepth camera.

The iPhone X, Apple’s first product with a TrueDepth Camera for Face ID, is set to be released to the public on November 3. It’s not clear when the company plans to introduce new iPad Pro models, but the new devices could come as soon as the first half of 2018. The iPad Pro was last updated in June of 2017, introducing a new 10.5-inch model with slimmer bezels and new display technology.
