Report: iPad Pro with Face ID could debut at WWDC

A new report from Rosenblatt analyst Jun Zhang in Barrons suggests that Apple’s rumoured Face ID enabled iPad Pro models may make their debut at this year’s Worldwide Developers’ Conference in June. Zhang expects that the new devices could offset some persisting weaknesses in iPhone X sales, and estimates that the new iPad Pro would be ready for mass production with a release date in late Q2 2018. Rumours of Face ID coming to the iPad Pro first appeared last October from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, suggesting that the inclusion of a TrueDepth camera would not only enable Face ID but would open up many more possibilities for developers. A WWDC release date doesn’t seem entirely out of the question in light of the fact that last year’s iPad Pro models were unveiled at the same time, although Apple has also more commonly unveiled major new iPad releases during its fall events in recent years.
