First Beta Of iOS 11.3 Firmware Hinting Apple To Launch A iPad Model With Face ID Support

According to both KGI's Ming-Chi Kuo and Mark Gurman of Bloomberg that Apple plans to release a next-generation iPad Pro this year with slim bezels and Face ID. And now codes uncovered in iOS 11.3 seems to support the claims.

iHelpBR's editor Filipe Espósito has discovered strings in the first iOS 11.3 beta that refers to a "modern iPad," which is notable since Apple's software engineers referred to iPhone X as the "modern iPhone" in older firmware, says Espósito and developer Guilherme Rambo.

While the "modern iPhone" strings allude to iPhone X, then the discovery lends credence to rumors of an iPad Pro with Face ID, which would certainly be a logical next step for Apple's product roadmap.

The tablet reportedly lacks a Home button, although it will likely still have an LCD instead of OLED display due to supply, cost, and technological constraints. It's not clear if the iPad Pro will have a notch for the TrueDepth system, or it will have uniformly slim bezels on all four sides with enough room for the Face ID sensors.

The TrueDepth Camera system enables unlocking iPads with facial recognition, support for Animoji, and even Portrait mode selfies. Face ID is also expected on a second-generation 5.8-inch iPhone X, a larger 6.5-inch version dubbed iPhone X Plus, and a new larger 6.1-inch LCD model.
