Apple to launch new iPad without a home button in 2018

A redesigned, High-End iPad with Face ID Coming in 2018 Apple's next iPad will steal the iPhone X's best features

APPLE IS REPORTEDLY working on a new iPad that ditches the home button in favour of the Face ID system introduced on the iPhone X. Apple already reduced the thickness of the edges on the 10.5-inch version vs. the 9.7-inch model it replaced, to maximize screen real estate, and it could go further still with additional space savings from reducing the "chin" of the front of the device.

That being said, it remains to be seen whether the future iPad will have the notch on the display just like the iPhone X. Though the report claims the iPad will not have the OLED screen that was used in the anniversary special iPhone. It will also feature an upgraded Apple Pencil stylus and enhanced stylus software tools, the report adds. Unlike the iPhone X, the iPhone 8 and the Plus variant of it comes with LCD panels, while the special iPhone comes with OLED screen. If an improved pencil launches alongside this new iPad next year, I think I might be looking at trading in. If they eliminate the Touch ID home button, they will be able to diminish the iPad's bottom bezel, being closer to the edge of the gadget.

Much cooler with another round of rain on Tuesday
A 20% chance for an isolated shower moves in overnight, especially through the very early morning hours on Thursday . Areas further to the south could see some snowfall as well, but no major accumulations are expected.

The next iPad will go through a major redesign that involves removing Touch ID, making the display almost bezel-less, and equipping it with Face ID. This would especially be beneficial for the larger iPad Pro which has the same design as the first-gen model from 2015. While Samsung is capable of serving Apple's OLED needs for the iPad Pro, financial and technical barriers mean that it won't be possible for Apple to adopt this display technology at this point in time.

Apple has recently refreshed its iPad lineup in June 2017 at Worldwide Conference 2017. However, we do not know for sure whether the new iPad will also allow wireless charging or if they will feature a glass back. This could arrive in the form of the Apple A11X CPU, which is expected to be a 7nm chip that, according to MacRumours, Apple started developing with TSMC earlier this year.
