There have been various rumors before about the next generation iPads and iPhones getting Face ID but now it seems it will really be happening.
The iPhone X will be coming with two features, one is the notch which is cut out of the display and the other is the 3D depth-sensing front camera system. The system is actually an infrared laser called VCSEL, which puts dots over the user’s face, helping the device create a 3D depth map which supposedly correctly identifies the user as the device’s owner.
For now we don’t have more info, aside from a list of the suppliers that will benefit from Apple’s demand of the key components that make up the Face ID system.
Apple is preparing to launch three new iPhones alongside two iPads this fall, and all of them will support the Face ID system. The new iPhones coming into shops this year will be an affordable model with a 6.1-inch LCD, a 5.8-inch iPhone X, an OLED device and the iPhone X Plus with a 6.5-inch screen.
As far as the iPads go, word is the company is working on a 11-inch iPad Pro that will be launching with the 12.9-inch model. Both tablets will lose the home button to the Face ID.
Apple updated their MacBook Pro line as well, but neither of them support the Face ID just yet and there is no word if such a concept is in the works, at least for the time being.
