New 2018 iPad Pro concept imagines Face ID & bezel-less design

A redesigned, High-End iPad with Face ID Coming in 2018

Redesigned

Bloomberg also said that it's unlikely Apple will make the switch to an OLED display for the 2018 iPad Pros due to cost as well as supply, but that the new device will feature reduced bezels and as well as an Apple-designed GPU like the iPhone X.

However, the new version of the tablet is unlikely to include an OLED screen, which provides more vivid colors and sharper clarity, the people said. Although the side bezels of iPads have shrunken slightly between some generations, removing much of the top and bottom bezels could greatly mimic an oversized iPhone X.

According to the report, the screen size will be similar to the 10.5-inch iPad Pro released this spring.

Why not include an OLED display on the new iPad model?




Dropping the home button on the iPad would allow for a larger screen in the same physical footprint.

The iPad had been Apple's second-largest product line as recently as 2015.

The iPad business used to be a huge profit driver for Apple, but revenue has fallen as overall tablet sales have declined in the past few years. It last updated the device in June by adding a 10.5-inch screen size option to the iPad Pro and a ProMotion screen that makes jumping between tasks smoother. Apple did the same thing with the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus this year. The sources say it is because of a combination of financial and technical constraints, namely because Apple would need Samsung Electronics to supply these panels. The new TrueDepth camera will also bring iPhone X's blockbuster Animoji feature to the iPad, which allows users to make animated emojis using their facial expressions.

Apple's next iPad will see a complete redesign, according to a report from Bloomberg, that will make it look and feel more like an iPhone X, including slim bezels and Face ID.
