Apple's Alleged Upcoming iPad May Feature Face ID Technology

Apple's Alleged Upcoming iPad May Feature Face ID Technology

When it comes to flashier additions, you can expect more Animojis for the iPhone X. And if the new iPad Pro gets a Face ID camera, Apple is also probably going to bring Animojis to the new iPad Pro. According to a report from Bloomberg, Apple's focus on squashing bugs in iOS 12 has delayed a bunch of features, including nearly anything significant for the iPad, until 2019. While TrueDepth and Animojis are now exclusive to the iPhone X, the report indicates that a new iPad model will include the necessary hardware to support the feature.

Instead of "keeping engineers on a relentless annual schedule and cramming features into a single update", Apple will give their engineers the green light to push back features they don't feel are quite ready for upcoming iOS updates. After launching a series of updates that have contained bugs and undeveloped features, Apple's faced criticism from its users and developers.

Instead of meeting tight deadlines and ticking checklists, development teams might have more say in how certain features that eventually make their way to the final build - or delay them entirely if more polishing is needed. The updated features for iOS 12 is expected to have new characters and easier-to-navigate menu.

As previously reported, Apple is also planning to allow developers to release apps that work across iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman details what Apple has in store for users waiting for the next big software update. Additional iPad software upgrades aren't expected until 2019 but they include a feature that would let you run several windows in one app and click between them like tabs in a web browser and a feature that lets two screens from one app run side by side.

As we have mentioned earlier that Apple will introduce changes in the platform on a deeper level, mainly the way the company develops and launches new products.

So if you're an iOS user and you've been jonesing for those features, just be patient.

According to people familiar with the matter, rather than focusing on introducing a slew of new features on the next iOS update, Apple will put more emphasis on offering a polished, reliable software experience and introducing only select key features. For those who experienced serious glitches and bugs in their iPhones during the last few months, such as a complete crash or incapability to answer a call, this news may come as a relief.

Apple is also expected to add a redesigned version of its in-house stock-tracking app.
