Apple is likely to bring its Face ID facial recognition technology to the next iPad Pro, according to reports on Monday.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reckons the TrueDepth camera technology is coming to the professional tablet range next year.
Such a move would enable Apple to remove the physical home button from the iPad Pro as it recently did with the iPhone X.
As AppleInsider points out, having additional devices with Face ID could help Apple convince developers to build the feature into their apps.

The iPad Pro now features 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch versions, having discontinued the 9.7-inch iteration earlier this year.
The often-reliable CGI analyst has already told investors he expects new iPads to include OLED screen technology in 2018.
Considering Touch ID arrived first on an iPhone 5s before it’s gradual roll out to further iOS devices, it’s probably only a matter of time before Apple begins bringing Face ID to other devices.
However, the iPhone X isn’t out yet and Apple hasn’t yet received feedback from users on the new security feature.
